--------  ------------  --------------------------------
   5      cups          Pillsbury's Best bread flour -- (may need 6 cups)
   3      tablespoons   sugar
   2      teaspoons     salt
   2      packages      active dry yeast
   2      cups          water
     1/4  cup           oil or shortening

     Grease two 8x4" or 9x5" loaf pans. Lightly spoon flour into 
measuring cup; level off. In large mixer bowl, combine 2 cups flour, 
sugar, salt and yeast; blend well. In small saucepan, heat water and 
oil until very warm (120-130F). Add warm liquid to flour mixture. Blend 
at low speed until moistened; beat 3 minutes at medium speed. Stir in 
additional 2 1/2 to 3 cups of flour until dough pulls cleanly away from 
sides of bowl. On floured surface, knead dough about 10 minutes or until 
dough is smooth and elastic with blisters under the surface. Place dough 
in greased bowl; cover loosely with plastic wrap and cloth towel. Let 
rise in warm place until light and doubled in size, about 1 1/2 hours.
     Punch down dough several times to remove all air bubbles. Divide 
dough into 2 parts; mold into balls. Allow to rest on counter, covered 
with inverted bowl for 15 minutes. Shape dough into 2 loaves. Place in 
prepared pans. Cover; let rise in warm place until dough fills pans and 
tops of loaves are about 1 inch above pan edges, about 1 hour. Bake at 
375F for 45 to 55 minutes until loaves sound hollow. Remove from pans 
immediately; cool on racks. If desired, for soft crusts, brush tops of 
loaves with melted butter. Makes 2 loaves.

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
     2/3  cup           honey
     1/3  cup           water
   3      cups          unsifted flour -- (may need 3 1/2 c.)
   3      tablespoons   sugar
   1      teaspoon      salt
   1      package       active dry yeast
   1      cup           milk
     1/4  cup           water
   2      tablespoons   margarine
   2                    eggs -- at room temperature
                        peanut oil -- for deep-frying

Combine honey and 1/3 cup water in a small saucepan. Heat gently, 
stirring, until well blended. Chill several hours. In a large bowl 
thoroughly mix 1 1/2 cups flour, sugar, salt and undissolved active 
dry yeast. Combine milk, 1/4 cup water and margarine in a small 
saucepan. Heat over low heat until liquids are very warm (120-130F). 
Margarine does not need to melt. Gradually add to dry ingredients and 
beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl 
occasionally. Add egg and 1/2 cup flour. Beat at high speed 2 minutes, 
scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in enough additional flour to make a 
stiff batter. Cover bowl; let rise in warm place, free from draft, 
until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour. Stir batter down. Drop by rounded 
teaspoonsfuls into deep hot (375F) oil. Fry a few at a time until golden 
brown, about 2 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towels about 1 minute. 
Then immerse fried doughnuts into chilled honey mixture. Drain and set on 
wire racks to dry. If desired, dipped doughnuts may be rolled in finely 
chopped nuts such as pecans, walnuts or peanuts.

   Makes about 3 1/2 dozen doughnuts.
