Recipe by Dee514
READY IN: 1hr 5mins
YIELD: 1 Loaf




  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water.
  • Stir sugar into yeast/water mixture, let mixture sit until tiny bubbles start to form.
  • Add butter, salt and half the flour.
  • With electric mixer on medium speed, beat batter for 2 minutes.
  • Add remaining flour, stirring by hand (or on low speed) until well blended and smooth (batter will be very thick, like a very soft dough).
  • Cover bowl with a tea towel, and let the batter rise in a warm draft free place for 30-60 minutes or until doubled.
  • Beat the batter by hand, about 25 strokes (the dough will deflate).
  • Spread batter evenly into a greased 8x3 or 9x4 inch loaf pan.
  • Smooth out the top of the loaf by patting it with your floured hand.
  • Cover pan, and let batter rise again (about 30-60 minutes) until dough has reached the top of the pan.
  • Bake in a preheated 375°F oven for 45-50 minutes, or until the loaf sounds hollow when the top is lightly tapped.
  • Remove from pan.
  • For a softer crust, brush the top of the hot loaf with butter.
  • Cool on a wire rack.
  • Bread slices best when it is cooled.
