“I am the official breadmaker in our household. I developed this recipe to meet Jenny's longing for 100% whole wheat bread that was not too brick-like. Gluten flour, Vitamin C powder (ascorbic acid) and lecithin granules can all be found at bulk or health food stores that cater to bakers. They are dough conditioners that allow organic or stone ground whole wheat flour to make a reasonably light loaf. Of course, it will still not be as light as commercial white loaves - you wouldn't want it to be! Be sure to use hard, or bread, flour, and not a soft pastry type flour.”

Ingredients Nutrition
