This recipe is for us oldster with bad joints and a decent mixer. My Kitchenaid does all the kneading. Makes one loaf. Good luck

Nice flavor, crumb and crust! I admit it! I mixed this on the dough cycle of my ABM. I have a Kitchenaid mixer, but the ABM is much more convenient. I made the recipe as written, EXCEPT I added 3/4 teaspoon salt, and made the dough into 21 small sandwich thins topped with toasted sesame seeds, instead of shaping it into a loaf. I baked the thins at 400F for 10 minutes. Tagged as a Preemie adoption, Spring PAC 2014.
- 3⁄4 cup water
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 tablespoon oil or 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 (1/4 ounce) package active dry yeast (not the one rise rapid yeast)
- 3 cups flour (I use bread flour)
- 1 teaspoon salt
Directions See How It's Made
- Add water, milk, sugar, honey, and oil to pot and warm to 120 degrees.
- Remove from heat, add yeast to mixture, stir until dissolved, and let foam, up to 10 minutes.
- In mixer, put in all flour and salt, leaving out just enough flour to very lightly flour your board.
- Once yeast mixture has foamed, add to flour and mix using bread hook for one minute on power setting 1.
- Move mixer to setting 2 and mix/knead another 9 minutes.
- Remove dough from mixer, roll lightly on board to shape into a somewhat smooth ball.
- Place dough in greased bowl, roll to coat, cover with plastic wrap and a towel, then set in warm place to rise until doubled (about 30 minutes).
- Once doubled, punch down and transfer dough back to mixer. Knead with bread hook another 3 - 5 minutes.
- Tightly roll loaf (look for directions on this site) and put in oiled bread pan.
- Lightly cover with plastic wrap and napkin and let rise in warm place 30 to 45 minutes.
- Put in preheated 375 degree oven (water bath optional) and bake 45 minutes.
