This was a slightly sweet, moist, tasty bread. I took the warm water and dissolved the yeast and proofed it for about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, I put butter, not margarine, sugar and the salt in a mixing bowl. After the yeast was foamy, I added it to the mixing bowl and gradually added a cup at a time the flour and kneaded it in my KitchenAid mixer till smooth and elasticy. I put it in a greased bowl with a damp cloth and let it rise until doubled, turned it onto a floured cloth, rolled it out to a rectangle, folded it and placed it in a loaf pan and let it rise again and then baked it at 350 for 30 minutes. Wonderful bread!

I've made 4 loaves of this already and it is absolutely wonderful! When you eat this bread, you just know life it good. I doubled the recipe very easily both times I made it. Thank you very much for posting this.

Ok, today I make my first loaf of bread EVER! I will report the results! Kind of surprised by margarine in the recipe. I didn't think anyone used that anymore. I'll use butter.
