100% Whole Wheat Bread

Easy to scale down to make one or two loaves. Shortening can be replaced by butter. You will love the aroma during the baking, it fills up the entire house with freshly baked bread smell. We couldn't wait for bread to cool down completely before we cut off a few slices, then ate it with butter. No need to say that it was delicious!
