Directions

  1. Sprinkle yeast in 1/4 cup warm water with a pinch of sugar.
  2. Let rest 5 minutes.
  3. Mix in remaining ingredients and 1/2 the flour.
  4. Beat well with wooden spoon, slowly stir in remaining flour. (When adding flour I start with a full cup, as the dough takes shape I only add a 1/2 cup at a time. Too much flour at once can make for very dry tough bread.)
  5. Knead 8 minutes and add more flour if sticky.
  6. Let rise until double in bulk (about 2 hour). Punch down.
  7. Let rest 5 minutes.
  8. Shape into loaves or rolls and place in 2 greased medium (8.5 inch x 4.5 inch) bread pans or 2 round 8" cake pans for rolls; about 7 rolls in each pan.
  9. Let raise until double in bulk (about 1 hour). Bake at 350'F 35 for rolls or 45-50 minutes for bread.
  10. Brush crust with butter while still warm.

This is a really good bread recipe. i tried to make rolls with it and it didn't work out all that well, i'm not sure why. But i made bread bowls with it and they are awsome!!!

This is first bread recipe I tried. I made rolls (14 in all) in round pans and they turned out awesome. I will definitely use this recipe again. Much less involved than most bread recipes
