 Ingredients List

  • 5 1/2 To 6 cups flour
  • 2 pk Active dry yeast
  • 2 tb Sugar
  • 2 ts Salt
  • 1 c Milk
  • 1 c Vvater
  • 2 tb Oil
  • Oil or butter



Combine 2 cups flour, yeast, sugar, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Heat
milk, water, and 2 tablespoons oil in a saucepan over low heat until very
warm (120 to 130F). Add liquid to flour mixture; beat on high speed of
elec- tric mixer until smooth, about 3 minutes. Gradually stir in more
flour to make a soft dough. Tum onto lightly floured surface and knead
until smooth and elastic (5 to 10 minutes). Cover dough with bowl or pan;
let rest 20 minutes. For two loaves, divide dough in half and roll out two
14x7-inch rectangles; for one loaf roll out to 16x8-inch rectangle. Roll up
from narrow side, pressing dough into roll at each turn. Press ends to seal
and fold under loaf. Place in 2 greased 8x4x2-inch loaf pans or 1 greased
9x5x3-inch loaf pan; brush with oil. Let rise in warm place until double in
bulk (30 to 45 minutes). Bake at 400F 35 to 40 minutes. Remove from pans
immediately and brush with oil; cool on wire rack.


Heat milk, sugar, oil, and salt; cool to lukewarm. In a large bowl,
sprinkle yeast in warm water (105 to 115F) stir until dissolved. Add
lukewarm milk mixture and 2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Beat in enough
additional flour to make a stiff dough. Turn out onto lightly floured
surface; let rest 10 to 15 minutes. Knead until smooth and elastic (8 to 10
minutes). Place in a greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover; let rise
in warm place until double in bulk (about 1 hour). Punch down. Let rest 15
minutes. Follow same shaping and baking

instructions as Quick Mix Method.
