Ingredients

2 Cups warm water (105-115 degrees)

1 tablespoon active dry yeast

1/4 cup honey or sugar

2 teaspoons salt

2 tablespoons oil (canola or vegetable)

4-5 1/2 cups all purpose or bread flour

1. In large bowl or stand mixer add the yeast, warm water and a pinch of the sugar or honey. Allow to rest for 5-10 minutes until foaming and bubbly.

2. Add remaining sugar or honey, salt, oil and 3 cups of flour. Mix to combine

Add another cup of flour and mix to combine. With the mixer running add more flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until the dough begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl. The dough should be smooth and elastic, and slightly sticky to a clean finger.

4. Mix the dough for 4-5 minutes on medium speed.

5. Grease a large bowl with oil or cooking spray and place the dough inside, turning to coat. Cover with dish towel and allow to rise in a warm place until doubled in size about 1 1/2

6. Spray two 9x5” bread pans generously with cooking spray on all sides.

7. Punch the dough down well to remove air bubbles. Divide into two equal portions. Shape each ball into long longs and place into greased loaf pans.

8. Spray 2 pieces of plastic wrap with cooking spray and lay them gently over the pans. Allow dough to rise again for about 45 minutes.

9. Preheat oven to 350. Bakes bread for 30-33 minutes, or until golden brown on top.

10. Invert the loaves onto a wire cooling rack. Burch the tops with butter and allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before slicing
