- Makes 2 Loaves
- (5 /5)

- 5 1/2 To 6 Cups Unbleached Flour
- 3 Tablespoons Sugar
- 4 1/2 Teaspoons Yeast
- 2 Tablespoons Salt
- 1 1/2 Cups Water
- 1/2 Cup Milk
- 2 Tablespoons Butter
- In large-size bowl combine 2 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt.
- In microwave-safe bowl combine water, milk, and butter. Place in microwave on high for 15 second intervals until very warm, but not hot to the touch (120° to 130°F). You don’t want it too hot or it will kill the yeast. The butter shouldn’t melt completely.
- Add yeast mixture to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes. Add 1 cup flour and beat another 2 minutes. Stir in just enough remaining flour so that the dough will form into a ball.
- Lightly flour surface and knead dough 6 to 8 minutes. Place back in bowl, cover with towel and let rest 10 minutes.
- Cut dough in half. Using a rolling pin roll each piece of dough into 12x7 inch rectangle. Beginning at short end of each rectangle, roll up tightly. Pinch seams and ends to seal. Place seam sides down in greased 8 1/2 x4 1/2 inch loaf pans. Cover with towel and let rise 45 minutes in warm place until doubled in size.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place in oven 25 to 30 minutes until golden brown.
- Remove from oven and remove from pans by running a knife around edges and invert onto wire rack.
