Honey White Loaves

 Honey White Loaves
When I was searching for a moist bread that wouldn't crumble when thinly sliced, a friend urged me to try her grandmother's age-old recipe. It slices perfectly.
36 ServingsPrep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 25 min. + cooling

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 2-1/2 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 8 to 9 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour

Directions

  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the butter, honey,
  • eggs, salt and 4 cups flour. Beat on medium for 3 minutes. Stir in
  • enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about
  • 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.
  • Punch dough down; shape into loaves. Place in three greased 8-in. x
  • 4-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from
  • pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 3 loaves (12 slices each).
