- 2 Tbsp active dry yeast
- 2 Cups Warm water
- 1 Tbsp Honey
- 1 Tbsp salt
- 1-2 Tbsp oil or room temp. butter
- 5.5 cups flour
Mix yeast, warm water, and honey together in your mixer. Let sit until bubbly.
Add in oil/butter and salt. Then add the flour. Attach dough hook and turn mixer on low. Leave it to do its job. I normally take this time to do dishes or fold laundry. I kind of just keep checking back until it’s the right consistency. Once it pulls away from the sides, I let it knead for a bit. Until it looks like this.
Then I set it out to rest and rise for another round of laundry or dishes. Normally until it has doubled in size.
Now I seperate the dough into 2 halves, punch them down, and form them into loaves. Then I set them in an oiled bread pan for the second rise.
They rise for about 30 minutes, or until they fill up the bread pan. Like this
Then bake at 375° for 30 minutes or until golden brown. We make these every week. It’s super easy and super low maintenance. Plus I can adapt this recipe to make other breads.
I got this recipe from The Hollar Homestead. It is my favorite bread recipe so far! Go check them out on YouTube!
