2 large loaves
Prep Time:
Cook Time:

Snowy white, great texture and flavor makes really nice sandwiches and toast is fantastic! slices easily


3/4 c
lukewarm water
1 Tbsp
yeast, (heaping)
1 tsp
granulated sugar
3 Tbsp
butter, melted
3 Tbsp
3/4 Tbsp
1 1/2 c
lukewarm milk
5 1/2-6 c
bread flour, sifted, you can use all purpose if you want,

Directions Step-By-Step

mix your yeast , sugar and water together in the large bowl you intend on making the bread in.stir gently and set aside to proof. about 10 minutes or until foamy
In a separate bowl mix your honey, melted butter, salt, milk and 1 cup of the flour
add this mixture to the proofed yeast mixture, stir until well combined, slowly add the rest of the flour, 1 cup at a time.
turn out on to a lightly floured bread board and knead until smooth and elastic, adding just enough flour to keep dough from sticking. about 8 minutes
place dough in a lightly oiled bowl turn once to cover top, cover with a dish towel and allow to rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 1/2 hour
remove from bowl onto a lightly floured bread board, divide dough in half and shape into loaves and place into well greased bread pans.
make a 1/4 inch slit down the middle of each loaf and set in a warm place for about 45 minutes or until doubled ( just above the rim of each pan) Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 35 minutes or until hollow sounding when tapped and golden brown in color.
I try and use the smallest amt of flour that I can when I make bread, for this recipe I used about 5 cups and then dusting the board with the 6th cup.

i just took two loaves out of the oven 30 minutes ago.Because of a last minute errand I had to leave the dough rising for an extra hour and 30 min.
Needless to say it came out perfect!
Thankyou for sharing.
