Bread is one of our bigger food expenses. We go through at least 3 loaves a week, and at $2.50 - $4.00 per loaf it adds up. I've been trying for years off and on to get a good whole wheat recipe that would come out soft as no one will eat the dense loaves I've made.
I finally did some research and found that Vital Wheat Gluten is the key. I used a recipe I had kicking around and added the gluten for a nice soft loaf!
