The Bread That Never Fails

I'm sure that this bread recipe doesn't turn out perfect for everyone every time, but you will find it is so simple, easy and you will be hooked.  I personally have only had incredible results with it.  I received this recipe from a friend who not only is a great cook but an incredible photographer.  She took our family pictures a few years ago and considering what she had to work with they were amazing!! You can check her and her work out here.  Anyway back to the bread one word it is delicious!! 
The Bread That Never Fails
3 cups warm water
1/3 cup oil
1/3 cup honey
1 1/2 Tablespoons Yeast (4 1/2 teaspoons)

Mix together for 1 minute. Let sit for 10 minutes until spongy.
Then add:
1 Tablespoon salt
4-8+ cups wheat flour (it took me 8 and I uses half wheat/half white flour)

Start with 4 and add just enough that the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Knead for 2 minutes. Shape into a big ball. Cut into three pieces and shape into loaves.
 Place in greased bread pans. Let rise just to the top of the pan. 
 **DO NOT PREHEAT OVEN**
Set the oven temperature to 350 degrees and put your loaves in.  Bake for 30 minutes or until the loaves are golden and sound hollow when you tap on them. 

I always rub the tops of my loaves with butter when they first come out of the oven.  Something my grandma always used to do and it adds a little bit of flavor to the bread!!
Delicious!!
 
Thanks Angie!

  2. It does look absolutely delicious - and on a chilly fall day, there's nothing like the smell of bread fresh from the oven!

  3. Look how amazing your bread looks! Why can't I make yeast bread that beautiful?!?! I'll try your recipe and see if I can do it. Your cinnamon rolls were amazing and I actually did it. We'll see if I can do this one too. Thanks for another great recipe!
