Ready In:
2 loaves or 12 bierocks




  • Combine milk, sugar, salt, and butter in small saucepan. Heat over low heat until butter melts and sugar dissolves. Cool to lukewarm.
  • Dissolve yeast in warm water in warmed bowl. Add lukewarm milk mixture and 4 1/2 cups flour. Attach bowl and dough hook. Turn to speed 2 and mix 1 minute. Continuing on speed 2, add remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until dough clings to hook and cleans side of bowl. Knead on speed 2 for 2 minutes longer, or until dough is smooth and elastic. Dough will be slightly sticky to the touch.
  • Place in a greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover; let rise in warm place, free from draft, until doubled in bulk, about an hour.
  • Punch dough down and divide in half. Shape each half into a loaf and place in a greased 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 2 1/2-inch loaf pan. Cover; let rise in warm place, free from draft, until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
  • Bake at 400 degrees F for 30 minutes. Remove from pans immediately and cool on wire racks.
  • When using for bierocks, after dough rises first time, cut dough in 12 pieces. roll each piece into a circle. Fill with hamburger cabbage filling ( I use recipe #50809).
  • Spoon the filling in the middle of the circle then pinch the edges together and fold the ends in and place on greased baking sheet. Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with coarse ground pepper and salt. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. Cool on rack.

    For q basic white bread, this is perfect. I've made buns, bread, and cinnamon buns so far with this recipe. Tonight I made trail burgers ??

    Can fast acting yeast be used? If so, does the dough have to go through a 2nd rise as the yeast package says no need for a second rise?

    Thinking of msking bread for my first try using my kithen aid mixer. Can I use fast acting yeast? If so how much? Also the package says no need for 2nd rising, is that true or should I let dough rise 2 times? Thank you.

    Can I use Bread Flour instead of all-purpose flour?

    Wonderful recipe for my first effort at making bread with a stand mixer, with a couple of modifications only - noted below. I have a bread proofing setting on my oven and my first rise took only 30 minutes -- used the ripe test to be certain. Then shaped one loaf and made 8 buns. 2nd rise again took approximately 30 minutes. I highly recommend the ripe test to avoid over proofing.,and%20then%20take%20them%20out.&text=If%20the%20indentations%20remain%20the,let%20the%20dough%20rise%20longer. My loaf and buns were baked within 25 minutes (in light metal pans) - verified with internal temperature check of 200. I started baking at 400 but lowered oven temperature to 375 as bread was browning too quickly. I think next time I will start baking at 375. Bread and buns are delicious!
