Stand Mixer Sandwich Bread Recipe
 
Ingredients
  • 5-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp. kosher salt
  • 2-1/4 tsp. (1 packet) active dry yeast
  • 16 oz. very warm water
  • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 3-1/2 Tbsp. honey
Instructions
  1. Into the bowl of your Stand Mixer, place all dry ingredients -- including yeast. In a separate bowl, add oil, honey and warm water. Stir liquids well to combine.
  2. Attach dough hook to your stand mixer and set on low speed for about 15 seconds, enough to combine the dry ingredients completely. Turn off the mixer. Add the liquid mixture and set set to low speed again for about 1 minute and 30 seconds or until all the ingredients have combined. Turn the stand mixer off and let stand for about 10 minutes.
  3. Run your stand mixer on second speed for about 3 minutes. Remove the dough hook and place the dough on a floured surface. Knead the dough three or four times to eliminate any remaining air pockets.
  4. In an oiled bowl, place the dough and cover with Saran or Cling wrap and a kitchen towel. Let dough proof in a warm, draft free area for about 1 hour. When the hour is up punch down the dough and turn onto a floured surface. Knead the dough a few more times. Form the dough into loaves and place into 2 loaf pans.
  5. Cover the dough pans with kitchen towels and let the loaves rise for about 45 minutes or until they have doubled in size.
  6. Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees. Drizzle olive oil over the top of both loaves. Place in the pre-heated oven and bake for 30 to 45 minutes or until the crust is lightly golden brown. Remove the loaf pans and allow to cool on cooling rack for 30 - 35 minutes before cutting.
  7. Enjoy!
