Wheat Bread

Last week, I thought I would give Homemade Wheat Bread a try!
It was shockingly easy, fast and good! So, I mixed up the dough - - it took all of about 10 minutes and that was while I was talking to Heather. A couple of times I had to say, "um, just a minute" while I thought about what I was doing, or I counted how many teaspoons I was dumping in...

20 minutes later, this is how big the dough had already risen!!
Then, to the loaf pans....really, I should have used 4 or 5 pans....
It baked up nicely.
Yum, and it tasted VERY good!
Here is the recipe
I just found it on line!
