Mildred Burton's Whole Wheat Bread

Let me start by saying making bread intimidates me like crazy.  Actually anything that required rising and kneading and complicated steps other than measure and stir intimidates me.  Today I tried my first attempt at Josh's family's bread, and low and behold it was a success!  I made bread.  Now it really was easy, I'm not sure what I was so afraid of.  It's not quite the same as my Mother-in-laws, and I'm sure Josh will critique it, but wholly crap, I made bread.

 Put in the pans and fingers crossed!
 Wholly Moly!  It actually rose! Getting ready to go in the oven.
 Right outa the oven, smells like heaven in here!
A little afternoon pick me up, bread, butter & ice coffee!  This would be even more delish with some apple butter.


  1. I'll have plenty of home made Apple Butter at retro indie ;)
