Ingredients

  • 8 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons yeast
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3 - 3 1/2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted - use at the very end! NOT with the wet ingredients.

Directions

  • Mix dry ingredients together in large bowl or the bowl of a standing mixer.
  • Add honey and 2 cups water with the mixer on. Let it mix together for a about 1 minute.
  • Gradually add third cup of water and add more if necessary. The dough should stick to bottom of the bowl but clean the sides and be sticky to the touch. If you add too much water, dont worry! Just add a bit more flour to get it back to the right consistency.
  • Knead 6-8 minutes in a mixer or 8-10 minutes by hand until the dough is smooth and elastic. Dont skimp on the kneading! This helps create the structure of the bread.
  • Let the dough raise (covered, room temperature) in the same bowl you mixed it in for 1 hour or until doubled.
  • Remove from bowl gently and form into 2 loaves. This is most easily done by creating a crease in the middle of the piece of dough with your palm and then folding the dough over the crease and pinching it together at the bottom, just imagine folding a piece of paper in half and gluing the bottom shut. Repeat this a few times until you have a smooth loaf shape. You may have to tuck the long ends in a few times as well.
  • Place in greased bread loaf pans and raise (covered, room temperature) 1 hour or until doubled.
  • Bake at 375 degrees F for 25 minutes, remove from oven and brush each loaf with a tablespoon of butter.
  • Return to oven and bake about 10 more minutes, or until golden brown. The internal temperature of the bread should read right around 200 degrees F.
