Batter Bread

Beginner’s Batter Bread
1 Tbsp yeast
2 ½ Cups warm water
2 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp oil
1 teas salt
6 cups white flour

In a large mixing bowl dissolve yeast in warm water.  Stir in honey, oil and salt.  Mix in 4 cups of flour.  Beat on low until well blended.  Beat on high for one minute more.  Stir in remaining flour with a long handled spoon.  Cover and let rise until doubled in size.  Punch down batter by stirring about 30 strokes with a long handled spoon.  Spoon batter into two greased loaf pans.  Let rise until batter reaches the edge of the pan, but not over.  Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes.

Wheat bread: substitute half of the white flour for wheat flour.

Cinnamon Raisin bread:  Add 2 cups of raisins and 2 Tbsp of cinnamon.
Add raisins into batter at the same time as the 4 cups of flour.  For evenly distributed cinnamon add at the same time as the raisins.  For cinnamon swirl: add small amounts of cinnamon at a time while punching down the batter.
