My sister and I were in 4-H, and Mom was our breads project leader for years. Because of that early training, fresh homemade bread like this is a staple in my own kitchen. -Karen Wingate, Coldwater, Kansas

I make this almost every other day! We love this bread for sandwhiches! I recently tried this with coconut oil instead of the butter and agave instead of the honey and it is still amazing. I did add 1 tablespoon of vital wheat gluten per one 1 cup of wheat four and my kids really like the white wheat flourl.
