I just love homemade bread! I can almost smell the goodness now.
How many loaves does this make? 3 like the photo shows? Thanks for sharing.
Mmmmmm. I can almost smell it. The best bread I ever ate in my life was some fresh ground whole wheat bread you made when we were there for a visit a few years back.
This makes 4 loaves. Good question!
Grammoo, I think this is the recipe I used. I just put whole wheat in it.
