Basic Homemade Bread
Serves: 4 loaves
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 c + 2 Tb warm water
  • 1 Tb sea salt
  • 3 Tb olive oil (or vegetable)
  • 4½ tsp yeast
  • 6½ c flour
  • ½ c honey
  1. To begin, grease & flour 4 loaf pans (or coat with "pan-ease".) Turn your oven light on to create a gently warm environment in your oven for the dough to rise.
  2. Combine all ingredients except ½ cup of flour - in a mixing bowl and run the mixer with dough hook for 14 minutes. Add small amounts of the reserved flour if the dough is sticky. Let the dough rise, covered, in a warm place for 45 minutes.
  3. Remove the dough to floured surface, and lightly knead. Divide it into 4equal portions, and pat out each portion into a rectangle, roll and place in a prepared loaf pans, seam-side down. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour. Heat oven to 350 degrees, then brush tops of loaves with milk.
  4. Bake 18 minutes. Remove from pans, and let cool on baking racks.
  5. Enjoy!
If you are using store-bought wheat flour, do NOT use all wheat flour in this. At most, only use half wheat and half white bread flour. Store bought wheat is very, very dry, and will not create a very pleasant bread.
