This is one of the easiest bread recipes I have come across. My mother-in-law gave it to me.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix together warm water, honey and yeast. Let sit 10 minutes.
  2. Beat eggs and add lemon juice, salt and oil.
  3. Add yeast mixture and stir.
  4. Mix in 10 to 11 cups of flour, until dough is firm.
  5. Set dough in large greased bowl and let sit in warm area until double in size ( about an hour). Do not set by open windows or doors as dough will not rise if it gets cold.
  6. After dough is doubled, punch down once. Take out and knead and shape into loaves.
  7. Place loaves into grease pans, and let sit until double in size.
  8. Bake at 350C for 15 minutes. Then turn temperature down to 325C and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour (until bread tops are golden brown).
  9. Brush tops of loaves with butter imediately after they are done.
  10. Let cool on racks.

Nice tasting bread, especially when spread with a homemade fruity spread (as in a cranberry one)! I did cut the recipe in half & gifted one loaf to a neighbor couple! Absolutely nothing like homemade bread for combort food! [Tagged, made & reviewed just for the 'HALIBUT!']
