January is National Wheat Bread Month in the U.S., so I thought I'd share a favorite, simple wheat bread recipe today that anyone, experienced or not, can make. I used to work as a baker, so I know how to make a good yeast bread from a sourdough starter that takes days and days. But I'm also a person who stays busy, so I will never tire of baking a good yeast bread that only takes, say, three hours.
This Easy Maple Wheat Bread Recipe is my go-to bread recipe for the autumn and winter months; it's easy enough to make while I'm doing other things, and it doesn't take up room in my refrigerator or on my counter for days and days. With strong scents of maple, this is a bread that makes your whole home smell wonderful as it bakes and that's lightly sweet for all palates.
