    PCrocker's Note:

    This is a classic white bread recipe that makes 5 loaves. My husband loves this bread toasted for breakfast.

    1. 1
      In large mixing bowl, combine 6 cups flour, dry milk, yeast, salt, sugar, and potato flakes; set aside.
    2. 2
      In microwave, heat water and margarine to 110 to 120 degrees.
    3. 3
      Add water mixture to flour mixture and beat on medium speed with mixer for 2 minutes.
    4. 4
      Gradually add enough flour for the mixture to form a stiff dough.
    5. 5
      Turn dough out onto floured board and knead about 10 minutes, adding flour as needed (I use my KitchenAid mixer with a dough hook).
    6. 6
      Be careful not to add too much flour; the dough should be smooth and elastic.
    7. 7
      Place the kneaded dough in a large oiled bowl and turn dough over to coat with the oil.
    8. 8
      Cover the dough with a large cloth and set aside in warm place to rise until it is doubled in size.
    9. 9
      Punch dough down and turn out onto floured board.
    10. 10
      Divide into 5 portions, shape each into loaves, and place in greased 4 1/2 x 8 1/2 inch non-stick loaf pans (the dark pans brown the bread better than the shiny pans).
    11. 11
      Cover pans with a cloth and let rise until doubled.
    12. 12
      Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for about 25 to 30 minutes.
    13. 13
      Remove bread from pans immediately and let cool on rack.
    14. 14
      Brush tops of loaves with butter.

      This is a very soft bread that is easy to make. I added some whole wheat flour as this is what we prefer. It will be a mainstay in our home.

      This bread is really good, I have tried a few homemade breads before and they don't even come close to this. My family loves this bread. Thanks PCrocker.
