Homemade Bread

Servings 6 loaves


  • 6 cups water or whey
  • 1 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup honey or sugar
  • 2 tbsp salt
  • 3 tbsp yeast Make them heaping.
  • flour Can be half whole wheat.


  1. In large mixing bowl (10 quart bowl or bigger) combine water, butter, sweetener, salt and 3 cups of flour. Mix well but can still be lumpy. 

  2. Add more flour and sprinkle the yeast on top. (Because of the melted butter will be hot and the water cold, this will make a warm temperature to allow the yeast to grow.) Mix this in well and add just enough flour to make a soupy mixture. 

  3. Let the soupy mixture rise for 20 minutes or so. 

  4. Continue adding flour until you are kneading it in with greased hands. Stop adding flour when the dough is still sticky.

  5. Knead a bit longer with greased hands.

  6. Grease the bottom and sides of the bowl with butter and cover. Let the dough rise until double in size.

  7. Knead down the dough and cover to let rise again. 

  8. Grease 6 bread pans. Divide and shape dough. Place dough into each pan and stick all over with a fork. 

  9. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Let loaves rise to double in size. 

  10. Bake loaves at 350 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. 

  11. Set pans on cooling racks and butter tops of loaves.

  12. After 10 minutes, remove loaves from pans to finish cooling.
