Milk-and-Honey White Bread

Total Time Prep: 15 min. + rising Bake: 30 min                                                Makes 2 loaves (16 pieces each)


  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 2-1/2 cups warm whole milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 8 to 8-1/2 cups all-purpose flour


  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk. Add honey, butter, salt and 5 cups flour; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured board; knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down and shape into 2 loaves. Place in greased 9×5-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  4. Bake at 375° until golden brown, 30-35 minutes. Cover loosely with foil if tops brown too quickly. Remove from pans and cool on wire racks.
