DIRECTIONS

  • Using a LARGE mixer, add the water and a few cups of flour. Mix.
  • Add the salt, oil, honey, and yeast. (If you measure the oil first and then the honey, the honey doesn't stick as much).
  • Add one cup of flour at a time, until the dough no longer sticks to the sides of the bowl. (at this point I think it's still too doughy, so I add one or two more cups depending on how much I have to shape the dough).
  • Let it knead for 12 minutes.
  • If making bread, turn on the oven to 170 degrees and let it heat while the dough kneads.
  • Shape the dough and place in pans (will make 3-4 loafs of bread, depending on the size of the pans).
  • Place the loafs in the oven. Turn off the oven. Let rise for 25-30 minutes.
  • Turn on the oven to 350. Don't remove the bread, let it continue to raise while preheating.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Remove and cool on cooling racks.
  • Don't put in the fridge, this makes it go stale faster. Freezes well.
