Amy’s Dinner Loaf

My goal of learning how to make bread is coming along nicely, thanks in part to my neighbor Amy who had a bread making class at her house and taught us how to make this beauty which was surprisingly easy!  Thanks Amy!

1 tablespoon yeast

3 tablespoons sugar, divided

1 1/3 cups very warm water

2 tablespoons honey

1 teaspoon salt

4 cups flour

1  Preheat oven to 350.

2  In mixer bowl, whisk together yeast, 1 tablespoon sugar, and water and let sit until foamy, about 10 – 15 minutes.

3  Add remaining sugar, honey, salt and flour and knead with bread hook attachment for about 10 minutes.  Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let rise until double in size, about 1 1/2 hours.

4  On a floured surface, roll dough out into  15 x 10″ rectangle then roll up into a loaf. Place loaf on cookie sheet or stone and cut four slits into top of loaf, about 1/2″ deep.  Cover with plastic wrap spayed with cooking spray and let rise until desired height.

5  Spray top of loaf lightly with cooking spray and bake for 25 – 30 minutes.
