Wheat Sandwich Bread Recipe

little Indiana is a particularly big fan of bread: and this amazing homemade wheat bread recipe is so wonderful you won’t feel like you need to buy the store stuff!

Not only do I love bread, but I love homemade bread. This recipe makes two loaves and lasts for a whole week.

That’s two loaves of bread that looks just like the store stuff (but without the preservatives). That’s two loaves of bread so good the kids wanted slices for snacks! From The Stay at Home Chef blog (full of great recipes on there!).
