3cupsall-purpose flour, bread flour, or wheat flour
Heat the cup of water in the microwave for about 20-30 seconds, until the water is warm but not scolding where it hurts to touch it – similar to warm bath water. Stir in the honey. Add the yeast and give it a little stir. Let mixture sit for about 10 minutes, allowing the yeast to bloom.
Pour this mixture into a stand mixer and add in the vegetable oil, flour (one cup at a time), and salt, using your dough hook. Alternatively, you can hand mix the ingredients and then knead the dough by hand.
Mix a few minutes on low speed. The dough will ball together on the hook and will no longer stick to the side of the bowl. If the dough is crumbly, dry and not sticking together after minutes of mixing, add in water 1 teaspoon at a time. Continue kneading for 3-4 minutes after the non-sticky dough ball has formed.
Remove dough from hook, roll into a ball and place in a lightly greased bowl. Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel and place in a warm, draft-free area. Allow the dough to rise for 1.5 hours or until the dough has doubled in size.
Once doubled, punch the dough down. Shape into an oval and place in a greased loaf pan, seam side down.
Allow the dough to rise again for one hour (or until doubled) in a warm, draft-free area.
Preheat the oven to 350 and bake for 25-30 minutes.
