Best Bread Recipe EVER!

OK, it is The Best Recipe for me because it is the only one that hasn't ever failed! (Yes, even Laurie's "Never Fail Rolls" don't rise for me!)

I've gotten a lot of requests for it lately, so here you go. There are different quantities for 6 loaves, 4 loaves and 2 loaves. Ian likes this bread better with whole wheat flour. I am currently trying to use up white flour that is in our food storage, and it almost feels sinful! It is very yummy! It is great both ways.

This only takes me about 1 hour 15 minutes from start to scrumptious!

Bosch Basic Bread Recipe (4 loaves)
4 cups hot water
6 cups flour
2/3 cup oil
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup Gluten
2 Tbs. Dough Enhancer
3 Tbs. SAF Yeast
2 cups flour
1 Tbs. salt
additional flour

Pour hot water in mixing bowl. Add 6 cups flour, oil, honey, gluten, dough enhancer and yeast. Mix well. Add 2 cups flour and salt and mix in. Within about 1 minute, add additional flour (1/2 cup to 2 cups) a little at a time.

**Tip** STOP adding flour as soon as the sides of the bowl come clean. If you add more, the bread will be heavier and denser. Be warned - it is a sticky dough!

When appropriate amount of flour has been added, knead for 8-10 minutes. Turn out onto oiled (not floured) counter top. (Oil your hands to work with the dough - then it won't stick to you.)
Divide the dough into 4 equal pieces, shape into loaves and place in greased loaf pans. Let rise for 30 minutes.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

I follow the directions exactly! I'm too scared of failure not to! Maybe one day I'll add lemon juice instead of gluten and applesauce for oil. Actually, why don't one of you do that and let me know how it turns out! I can't risk it!

2 1/2 cups hot water
4 cups flour
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup honey
