You'll appreciate the hearty whole wheat goodness in this tender bread from Diane Kahnk of Tecumseh, Nebraska. The recipe calls for a blend of whole wheat and white flours to produce a loaf that tastes just like Grandma used to make.

"This is the only bread recipe I use now. It doesn't dry out quickly like most homemade breads. I don't have a bread machine, so I mix all of the ingredients with my stand mixer for about 5 minutes, put in warm place to rise til double, punch down, put in loaf pan to rise in warm place 15 minutes more, bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes in a loaf pan, remove from pan and brush with melted butter before bread cools completely. Depending on your oven, you might want to check the color of the crust after 20 minutes and tent with foil for the rest of the baking time if it has reached the shade of brown you like."

"This was great bread I made it on light setting next time I will do med,I think it should be cooked a little darker. It was a little heavy but great flavor! My picky 6year old loved it and my husband."

"I have made this several times before deciding to rate it. I use the medium crust setting on my bread machine. It is perfect every time. The bread has a beautiful texture and my family loves it. I like the simplicity of ingredients... you have everything on hand. I use olive oil instead of canola, as it is the only oil in our home. Try it!"

"I make this often. Only problem I have is with top caving in, but have added a couple tablespoons of flour to correct that. Very tasty!"
