Directions

  1. Using a heavy duty mixer, combine all dry ingredients with 4 cups of the flour.
  2. Place milk & butter in a microwave bowl & heat on HIGH for 3 1/2 minute or until mixture reaches 115 degrees.
  3. In a separate bowl beat eggs to a froth.
  4. Using a dough hook at low speed, combine heated milk/butter combo & dry ingredients in mixer bowl, then add beaten eggs.
  5. Continue to knead at low speed while slowly adding (in 1/2 cup increments) remaining flour until dough begins to release from sides of bowl. Place dough in a greased bowl covered with a dishtowel & let rise until double in volume.
  6. Punch down & let rest for 10 minutes. After resting divide into loaves of desired size & let rise again until double in size.
  7. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes. After removing from the oven, brush loaves with melted butter.
  8. Makes 2 large or 8 small loaves. Time does not include rising time.
