INGREDIENTS

cooking spray 1 2/3 cups warm (105-110°F) water 1 1/2 tablespoons honey 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast 5 1/2 cups unbleached, all-purpose bread flour, divided 1/2 cup nonfat dry powdered milk 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature 2 teaspoons salt

Instructions

Place warm water, honey, and yeast in the Cuisinart mixing bowl. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes until mixture is foamy and bubbly. While yeast is proofing, combine 4 1/2 cups bread flour with powdered milk and salt. Add the flour mixture to the yeast mixture with the unsalted butter. Insert the dough hook and mix on speed 2 for 2 minutes. Continuing on speed 2, add the remaining flour one tablespoon at a time until a dough ball forms that clings to the dough hook and cleans the sides of the bowl. Set the timer for 4 minutes and the speed to 3 to allow the dough to knead. Transfer the dough to a clean bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm, draft-free place until volume is doubled.


Lightly coat two 8x4x3-inch loaf pans with unsalted butter or cooking spray. Punch dough to deflate. Divide into 2 equal portions. Shape into loaves and place in prepared pans. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled. About 15 minutes before baking, preheat oven to 375°F. Place loaves in preheated oven and bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until break is browned and sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from loaf pans and cool on a wire rack. Bread slices best when allowed to cool completely before cutting. If top of bread is too crispy for your taste, brush with butter for a softer crust.
