Honey Wheat Bread

Honey-Wheat bread is hearty and has a slightly sweet touch with the honey.  This recipe is primarily with whole wheat, with some white flour in it, so it isn’t too dry.

This is one of those recipes that is very special to me. This was my Grandmother’s recipe for Honey-Wheat bread. My Grandmother was a fantastic cook, her recipes were simple, but they always tasted so good. I loved it when my family and I would go to my Grandparents during the summers, and I can always remember a table filled with food from the garden, parsley potatoes, and sometimes for a special treat she would serve homemade bread. My Grandfather would always finish his meal with a piece of bread with butter and jelly.
