Hi! This is my first time rating a recipe at this site. All I can say is THANK YOU!!!! Well, I guess I have alittle more to say than that. I have had such terrible sucess at making really good making any kind of wheat bread, this one is moist, light and fluffy and the perfect flavor. I did have to make some minor changes due to the ingredients that I had on hand but it still turned out great. After it cooled, we dove in. PERFECTION! My husband and I just ate chicken sandwiches with it. He told me that I was finally catching on to baking bread. ***** stars and thank you, I feel like a pro baker!
