In large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add dry milk, oil, honey, eggs, wheat gluten and 3 cups flour. Beat 3 minutes on medium speed. Cover bowl and let stand 20 minutes.

Place dough in a greased bowl, turning dough to coat top. Cover; let rise in a warm place about 1 hour, until doubled. Punch down and shape into 2 loaves; place in lightly greased 9 x 5-inch bread pans. Cover and let rise about 1 hour or until dough is doubled.
