I wanted to ask Aimee if she had tried this recipe as a Wheat bread, and if so, do I half the flour for whole wheat, or use all whole wheat flour? Any input would be greatly appreciated :)

Oh my goodness, this is fabulous bread. I used bread flour and substituted 1/2 of whole milk for the extra 1/2 cup of water to bloom the yeast. My entire family LOVES this bread, and I’ve already realized I need to make a batch in a couple of days because one loaf is already practically gone!
