 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Milk
  • 1/4 c Sugar
  • 1 tb Salt
  • 4 tb Butter
  • 2 Envelopes Dry Yeast
  • 1 1/2 c Water
  • 8 c Flour


Scald the milk in a saucepan. Cool slightly. Stir in the sugar, yeast and
butter. Cool. Add the yeast to the warm water in a second bowl. Stir until
the yeast is dissolved. Add the cooled milk. Stir. Stir in half the flour.
Beat until smooth. Stir in enough additional flour to make a soft dough.
Turn the dough out onto a well floured board. Knead until smooth and
elastic (10 minutes or longer). Place in a greased bowl. Turn to grease the
top. Let rise until doubled in bulk. Punch the dough down. Let rest for 10
minutes. Divide the dough into loaves. Shape each into a ball. Set each
ball on a greased baking sheet. Let rise until doubled in bulk. Preheat the
oven to 400 degrees. Bake until the loaves sound hollow when tapped on the
bottom (about 20 minutes).
