Homemade Honey White Bread



  • 1 cup warm water (sometimes I need more or less)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 3½ cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons yeast
  • ½ cup honey or sugar


  1. Mix all ingredients together in mixer with dough blade until dough forms. It should be dry enough to not be sticky but wet enough to not crumble.
  2. Lift dough out of bowl, spray with olive oil (I spray the bowl) and place dough back in bowl covered with towel, allow to rise for 30-60 minutes.
  3. Knead with dough blade (will deflate).
  4. Remove from bowl, place dough on flowered surface and knead by hand a few times.
  5. Divide in half.
  6. Roll into 2 loaf shapes and place in loaf pans (mist pan with olive oil first).
  7. Cover and allow to rise (depends upon temp in room, but usually around 60 minutes – it should be slightly over the top edge of the pan, do not allow to over-rise).
  8. Bake at 350 for around 20-30 minutes or until golden brown on top. At around the 15 minute mark, I mist the top of the loaf with olive oil and continue cooking until done.
