This past January 1st, I made a pact with myself that I would not buy a single loaf of bread in 2008. So far, I have held to that pact; therefore, I have made many loaves of bread in the past five months. I just used this recipe for the first time and it came in a close 2nd to my grandmother's old fashioned whole wheat bread recipe. I made a few variations -- I substituted 1 T molasses for 1 T of the honey; I pulverized 1 cup whole oats in my food processor and substituted it for one cup of the bread flour; I added sunflower seeds and chopped almonds toward the end of the kneading process to add a little crunch. I just took the bread from the oven and spread it with some butter -- excellent. I will use this as a basic recipe and will make variations as I go along.
