Basic White Bread

This is the recipe we use for everyday bread. Make a loaf every three to four days.

BASIC WHITE BREAD

3 cups flourBasic White Bread
2 Tbs. yeast
3 Tbs. honey
1 tsp. salt
1 1/3 cups water
Optional: 3 Tbs. gluten

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease bread pan.
2. Mix dry ingredients. Then Add honey and water.
3. Mix well and then knead until smooth and springy. Let rise in bowl until it doubles in size. Punch down and let dough rise again until it doubles in size.
Punch down and roll into loaf shape and put into bread pan.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until golden brown.

I found this awesome glass bowl at the swap meet for just a few dollars. It has French writing on the bottom and is very heavy. The lid from an already-owned pot fit perfectly. Hubby uses it exclusively for bread.
