Looking for the best ever whole wheat bread recipe

Smileelisa Sep 10, 2009 07:52 AM

I love whole wheat bread and bake it all the time but I can't figure out why it doesn't rise much above the pan and is denser than the bread you buy in the store. The flavor is good though. I even substituted applesauce for the oil last time and the bread was delish! Can you share your fav recipe?

    If you're looking for a sandwich loaf, rather than a crusty, artisnal style, then I really like the Best Recipe's whole wheat, although I cut the honey (or is it molasses?) by 1/2.
