I used my Kitchen Aid to make this bread, as I don't have a bread machine. I proofed the yeast in my mixer bowl with the honey and warm milk for ten minutes. I then added the melted butter and then, the dry ingredents. I had to add about another half cup of flour to get the dough into a ball and jump on the hook. I kneaded it with the dough hook for five minutes, then set it to rise in a greased, covered bowl for a hour. After it had doubled, I formed it into a loaf, and let it rise again in the loaf pan another fourty-five minutes or so. I baked it at 350* for about a half hour. This bread had the texture of a beer bread. Chewy and dense. You could really taste the yeast, if that makes sense. My husband ate over half of the loaf on his own and my kids each ate two pieces. Good bread. NOTE: I appreciate you posting this recipe just for the title. My son lost his Grampy three years ago and pines for him still. When I saw this title, I had to make it. Please thank your Grampy for sharing his bread recipe and make sure you hug him from my son. He was quite touched by this.
