Recipe by Shelby Jo
READY IN: 2hrs 40mins
YIELD: 2 loaves




  • In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk. Add the beans, sugar, butter, salt and 2 cups of flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough.
  • Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Shape into loaves. Place in two 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pans coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 350F for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
