DIRECTIONS

  • Mix water with yeast and sugar and let sit until foamy (about 10 minutes). In the meanwhile, put the 3 eggs (in the shell) in a bowl of hot water (to bring the eggs to room temperature).
  • Put flour, salt, and gluten in bowl.
  • Pour in yeast mixture and stir until combined. Add in honey, eggs, and crisco until combined, scraping sides. (I usually use an egg beater for this).
  • Add more wheat flour and knead until smooth.
  • Let set in warm place for about an hour until double in size.
  • Divide into 3 loaves. Let rise again in warm place until doubled (about 1-1/2 hours).
  • Bake as regular bread (I bake about 35 minutes at 375 or until the interior of the bread is 190 degrees using electric thermometer if you have one).
  • Enjoy!
