Steps

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook, mix together first three ingredients.
  • Add water and mix for one minute, scraping down bowl halfway through if necessary. Cover bowl with a kitchen towel and allow to rest for 10 minutes.
  • Add salt, oil, honey, and lemon juice; beat for 1 minute.
  • Add remaining 2 1/2 cups of flour, 1 cup at a time, beating between each cup. Knead dough in mixer using dough hook for 10 to 15 minutes or until dough pulls away from the side of the bowl and feels smooth rather than sticky.Preheat oven to lukewarm by setting it to 350F and then turning it back off after exactly 1 minute. Grease two nonstick bread pans (8 1/2" x 4 1/2" x 2 1/2" or 9? x 5? x 2 1/2") or grease two regular bread pans and line with parchment paper. Turn dough onto greased surface. Evenly divide into two loaves and place into prepared bread pans, gently pressing dough into corners.
  • Place pans in warm oven and allow to rise for 20 to 40 minutes, or until dough is nicely domed above the tops of the pans. Without removing pans from the oven, turn on oven to 350F and set timer for 30 minutes. Once baked, immediately remove hot bread from pans and cool on rack.
