East central Iowa
I make a lot of bread with a bread maker. But I only make white bread and it took a lot experimentation to get nice big loaves. I've tried making whole wheat bread using store bought wheat flour but I end up with small loaves and not the fluffy filled with holes that people like bread.
I ended up making wheat bread by using 3 cups of white flour and 1 cup of whole wheat. I use 2 heaping tablespoons of sugar.
Living in Iowa I don't know anybody that has a field of wheat so the likelihood of getting farm fresh ground wheat is pretty slim.
Could you share your recipe? Your wheat loaf looks like my white bread loaves.
