This recipe is ok as is, especially if you like a really dense, kinda dry bread....but I made changes to make it more light and fluffy.. Its a FAVE in this house... I double the recipe, only using the dough cycle in my bread machine. Then I used EVOO instead of butter, added 2 tsp. dough enhancer, use 1/3 cup honey TOTAL in the doubled recipe inplace of brown sugar, replace one Tbs vital wheat gluten flour for every cup of whole wheat flour used, and also used WHITE whole wheat flour instead of regular/red hard wheat flour. When dough cycle is finished, I divide in half, shape loaves and place into loaf pans...rise for 30 minutes or so and then bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. Rub cold butter on top of loaves as soon as you pull the pans out of the oven (keeps top of loaves soft)...let rest in pans for 10 minutes and then remove and let cool on cooling rack. Thank you so much for this recipe! I even turned my Hubby into a wholegrain lover, and that is saying A LOT!
