My dad has been a wheat farmer all his life and my state is the wheat capital, so this recipe represents my region and my family well. This bread never lasts too long at our house.

"five stars all the way. this recipe turned out exactly how it appeared in the picture for me. Light sweet taste of honey, sliced beautifully, and it was so easy to make. perfect for sandwiches. i placed a bowl full of hot water in the oven while it cooked and scored the top of the loaf. i did cover the last 4 minutes with tin foil so it didnt over brown. my first try at this recipe was a total success. I will definitely make it again, and again. (and again)"

"I've made this bread several times for my family and to give to others. It's definitely a favorite. I also used leftovers for bread pudding once and my dad proclaimed it the best bread pudding he'd ever had!"
