Virginia Box Bread

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 2/3 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature, lightly beaten
  • 5 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3-1/4 to 3-3/4 cups all-purpose flour

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add eggs, butter, sugar, salt and 2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • 2. 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 1-1/2 hours.
  • 3. Punch dough down. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 13x9-in. rectangle. Transfer to a greased 13x9-in. baking pan. Using a sharp knife, cut dough into 16 pieces. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 375°.
  • 4. Bake 20 minutes or until golden brown. To serve, separate into rolls.
