In a rush? You can skip straight to the Classic 100% Whole Wheat Sandwich Loaf recipe on my Tumblr. Or you can jump to my Just the Basics section.

I have to admit, I’m pretty excited about this recipe.

Over the weekend, I decided to make bread on a whim. It was a spur of the moment kind of thing. I decided I wanted a whole wheat loaf, but I didn’t actually have any family recipes on hand for one. I had tried a honey whole wheat sourdough loaf before, but I wanted something a bit lighter in flavor and texture.

So I improvised.

And this 100% whole wheat sandwich loaf just happened.
