MY REVIEW

"Although I have made bread for many years this is my first attempt at whole wheat bread. Easy, easy, easy recipe! And it turned out delicious. The only thing I did different was not bake it as long as stated. My 3 loaves were done in 35 minutes. Perfect! I will be making this again and again."
