Soft White Bread

 Soft White Bread
I feed 70 people at church every Wednesday. A good oven-fresh bread like this helps fill folks up and stretches the main dish.
48 ServingsPrep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 25 min.

Ingredients

  • 11 to 11-1/2 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/3 cup nonfat dry milk powder
  • 3 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 4 cups water
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed

Directions

  • In a bowl, combine 5 cups flour, sugar, dry milk powder, yeast and
  • salt. In a saucepan, heat water and butter to 120°-130°
  • (butter does not need to melt). Add to flour mixture. Beat on low
  • speed until moistened; beat on medium for 3 minutes. Add enough
  • remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface;
  • knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a
  • greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a
  • warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down. Divide
  • into thirds; shape into loaves. Place in a greased 8-in. x 4-in.
  • loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake
  • at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from
  • pans to wire racks. Yield: 3 loaves.
