Simple Whole Wheat Bread

I just started baking bread again after getting a KitchenAid stand mixer for Christmas. This is the third batch of this bread that I have made and everyone that I have shared it with loves it. Compared to other bread recipes I have experimented with, it is my husbands favorite. I took the advise of another review and increased the amount of whole wheat flour each time. For the last batch I only used 3 1/2 cups of white flour in the starter and added 5 cups of whole wheat before kneading with my mixer for about 5 minutes. I only add a half of cup of honey at the beginning because I do not like bread that is too sweet. Great for toast, sandwiches and with soups or stews.

This cake is (was) delicious! I was inspired to make this so I could beat the egg whites with my new KitchenAid stand mixer that I got for Christmas. I didn't have cake flour so I used unbleached white flour. The cake was light and rich at the same time. The frosting is delicious. I used chopped pecans for the nuts and served it with fresh whipped cream. The cake looked just like the photo in the recipe and my family (and I) loved it. I will definitely make this again.
