* Chef Cook's Honey Bread *

1 1/3    Cups       Warm water ( Approx 100 F)  

 


½         Oz.           Rapid rise yeast  (2 envelopes)
1/3       Cup         Gourmet Temptations Honey
¼         Cup         Vegetable oil
1          tsp.          Salt
3-3 ½  Cups        All Purpose flour


Place ½ cup warm water in large bowl.  Sprinkle in yeast and stir until dissolved.  Add remaining water, honey, oil, salt, and 1 cup flour.  Beat 2 minutes at medium speed with electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally.  Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.  Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic – approx. 8-10 minutes.  Place in greased bowl, turning to grease top.  Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, approx. 1 hour.
Punch dough down; place on greased cookie sheet shaping into approx. a 9-10” round.  Cover, let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, approx. 30 minutes.
Bake in preheated oven at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes.  Should be nice and brown – do not over bake.  Remove from baking sheet and cool on wire rack.  Makes one round.

Enjoy !
