Homemade White Bread

Delicious homemade white bread.



  1. in a large mixing bowl add yeast, honey and salt.
  2. Mix until the honey melts and then let sit for about 10 minutes.
  3. Add 4 cups of flour and mix for at least ten minutes activating the gluten. When the dough is smooth add the last 2 cups and use a stiff or wooden spatula to incorporate the rest of the flour.
  4. Divide the dough into two 9x4" greased bread pans and let rise in a warm place for 15 minutes.
  5. Place in a cold oven for 10 minutes at 200-250 °F (90-120 °C) and then increase to 350 °F (175 °C) for 40 minutes. (If you have any hot spots in your oven be sure to check your bread early on.)
  6. Remove from oven and loosen the edges with a knife and place on cooling rack.
  7. Don't be afraid to cut into the bread while it's still hot. It will get squishy but tastes like heaven!

Delist! Enjoyed a slice with my soup tonight. My son chose a half a piece of bread over gingerbread cake.
