Recipe by Denise Sullivan
"I am not sure why this is called Milk and Honey Loaf. There is no milk in the recipe. I have only recently started making bread, and this is the recipe a friend started me with. It has been passed from person to person for some time, and is very easy."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

2 (.25 ounce) packages
active dry yeast
warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
whole wheat flour
unbleached all-purpose flour
Very easy to make for a yeast bread. It didn't need too much time to rise, and it made three fairly large loaves. It has a sort of mild taste, so if you want a lot of flavor, this is not your recipe.
This makes a very tasty bread. Slightly sweet and soft. I did not have any rye flour so I subbed an extra cup of whole wheat to the recipe. Next time I will try it with the rye. My family loved it! Thanks for the recipe.
Very easy, makes 3 good size loaves--well, probably 4. I made this in my bread machine but failed to look at the amounts prior to starting, so I ended up with a rather sticky dough since I couldn't fit the last cup of whole wheat flour in the bread machine. My fault, certainly; there is no reason I couldn't have halved it, which is really what I should have done. But, oh, well, no harm done, and I ended up with a somewhat hearty but not too hearty loaf (hubs didn't complain, always a huge plus) that worked well for sandwiches and toast equally. Thanks for the recipe!
the recipe seems nice but is there any substitute for the rye flour because i can't find it now
This was my first time working with rye flour and I was pleasantly surprised by the results. The dough rose well and the texture wasn't as heavy as I was expecting. I think when making again I might reduce the honey slightly as the bread was just a touch too sweet but that's just personal preference. Thanks Denise.
