Here is the easy recipe:
1 1/4 cup tepid water + 2 Tablespoons Honey + 2 1/2 Teaspoons Dry Active Yeast.
3 Cups Bread Flour (White, White Whole Grain, or 2 1/2 cups white and 1/2 cup Whole Wheat)
Teaspoon salt + 2 Tablespoons melted butter.
Bloom the yeast in the water and honey, if foam forms after mixing and resting a few minutes you have nice active yeast. Blend the flour, salt, and butter then mix in the water/yeast/honey until you form a loose ball of dough. Remove from bowl to a lightly floured work surface and kneed for 5 - 7 minutes then return to the mixing bowl, cover in saran wrap and place in a warm quiet area in the kitchen. After 40 minutes the dough should have doubled - punch it down and turn out on a lightly floured work surface and knead for 4 - 5 minutes. Form into a log and place in a buttered loaf pan, brush the top of the dough with melted butter and cover with the plastic wrap. Rest another 40 minutes.
Slit the top of the loaf with a very sharp paring knife about 1/4 inch deep and almost from end to end, place in 350 degree oven for approximately 45 minutes. Remove from oven and gently turn out of the loaf pan onto a cooling rack.
Viola, a loaf of bread - active time about 20 minutes. Use a good bread knife and turn loaf on it's side to slice. Store in a bread box.
