  • 1 package (or 2 1/4 teaspoon) Active dry yeast
  • 3 tablespoons warm water , 105F- 115 F
  • 1 cup warm Milk , 105F -115F
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 5 tablespoons butter pieces
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg , large
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 1 ½ - 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • melted butter , for brushing the top


  • In a standing mixer combine 3 tablespoon lukewarm water and yeast . let it sit until dissolve for about 5 minutes. Mix for about a minute by hand or using the mixer
  • Meanwhile in a microwave safe medium bowl, combine milk, with the butter pieces, sugar , salt and microwave for about a minute. Stir until everything is melted. Lightly whisk in the honey and egg to the butter mixture ( if the mixture is too hot let it cool to a warm mixture to prevent eggs from curding
  • Dump everything into the yeast mixture .
  • Mix for 2 minutes at medium speed. Add 2 cups of bread flour and mix . Add about 1 1/2 cups of flour continue mixing dough and stopp when the dough doesn’t stick to the sides or bottom of the bowl when kneading.
  • Add in enough additional flour (if needed) to make a soft dough.
  • Turn dough on lightly floured surface and knead for 8 to 12 minutes or more if you want an airy bread. Place dough in a greased bowl, turning once to coat. Cover loosely with a clean cloth and let rise in a warm, draft-free place for 1 to 2 hours or until doubled.
  • Punch the dough down, knead briefly , refrigerate and covered for 30 minutes. At this point the dough maybe shaped into a grease loaf pan , and place seam side down in the pan or divide dough into 12 equal pieces. Shape into balls. Place in greased 12 -inch round pan and bake . You may refrigerate before baking for up to 24 hours
  • preheat the oven to 350 F . Brush the top of the loaf with melted butter or milk. Bake until the crust is deep golden brown and the bottom of the loaf sounds hollow when tapped , 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Remove from the the baking pan and let it cool . I like to eat mine when it is still warm.
