Recipe by Cookin Up A Storm
"This is a rich and soft loaf suitable for sandwiches or slicing for use in a bread pudding, overnight egg bake, or French toast. It is equally good fresh out of the oven with butter and jam."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 1/2 cups
warm water (110 to 115 degrees F/43 to 46 degrees C)
1 1/2 tablespoons
active dry yeast
bread flour, divided, or more as needed
vital wheat gluten
I was seriously salivating when I smelled this baking in the oven. This is a fantastic, versatile bread! I didn't have any wheat gluten, so I simply had to do without. I also ran out of honey after about 4 T, so I left as-is, and the bread was divine. If you're like me and don't have a stand mixer with a dough hook, don't fret. I mixed all this up very successfully with a hand mixer and then kneaded on a lightly floured surface. What the directions don't tell you is to remove the bread from the pans immediately after baking. I learned from another bread recipe that allowing the bread to sit in the pans can likely form mold on the bottom of the loaf down the road. Allow the bread to cool completely on a wire rack, and then bag it up. I kept one loaf out and froze the other. I can't wait to have a grilled cheese with this bread! Great recipe!!
