Honey White Loaves Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 25 min. + cooling YIELD:36 servings


  • 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 all-purpose flour


  • 1. 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.
  • 2. 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.
  • 3. Punch dough down; shape into loaves. Place in three greased 8x4-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • 4. 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).

"I made this bread last week. It is delicious and very easy to make. I took one of the pieces of dough and made a cinnamon and sugar loaf. Yummy!! I will make it again. I found this recipe in my TOH Best of Country Breads cookbook."
