Check out this discussion:


The topic is mostly 100% whole-wheal, but if you prefer, you can make a nice sandwich loaf with half-and-half white and WW.

Regardless of which recipe you end up using (and you will find a bunch here , including the 'honey whole wheat' link in the list at left), I think you will be happy if you include buttermilk. It makes a great texture and adds a little something special to the flavor.
