How To Make Moist Wholewheat Bread

Diabetics are recommended to eat wholewheat bread instead of plain white bread.  My husband is diabetic and totally opposed to me serving him wholewheat bread until recently when he had a foot injury and had to be hospitalized for 2 days.  Now I use the recipe below frequently to make my wholewheat bread and I am super impressed with the results, my husband enjoys it too.

Wholewheat breads has to tendency to be a bit on the dry side.  With this recipe my wholewheat breads are always super moist this makes me extremely happy😊😊😊

2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
4 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pack instant yeast or 1 tablespoon yeast
1 1/14 cup lukewarm water

Put all the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl.  Mix together well.

Ok okay I know you are excited to cut a slice of your hot homemade wholewheat bread but allow it to cool a bit before cutting a slice.  I notice that when I cut the bread when it is fresh out of the oven, the bread gets squeezed up.  So I wait a bit then I cut the bread with a bread knife.
