TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 20 min. + cooling YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/3 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 2-1/4 to 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons butter, melted
  • Additional melted butter

Directions

  • 1. Combine yeast, sugar and water in a large bowl. Add 11/2 cups of flour, salt, milk and butter. Mix for 3 minutes on medium speed. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • 2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  • 3. Punch dough down; shape into loaves. Place in two greased 5-3/4-in. x 3-in. x 2-in. pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • 4. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Brush tops with melted butter. Yield: 2 loaves (4 slices each).
