Sunflower Wheat Bread

Coming from the Sunflower State and the No. 1 wheat-producing state, I'm always looking for recipes that promote our agricultural products.

    I don’t have a machine either, could you give me directions for proofing the yeast?

    I do not have a bread machine, so I just made this the way my Mom taught me to make bread. Beautiful loaf. And tasty!

    This bread is very tasty!!! Also, it's very simple with the bread machine. I am always on the lookout for simple breads. All the different ingredients work well together. I did substitute coconut oil for the butter and still turned out great. I will be making this again.
