White Bread Daily Loaf

Country.Chef's picture
  Warm water 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (105 To 115�F)
  Active dry yeast 1⁄2 Ounce (2 Packages)
  Sugar 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Warm milk 2 1⁄4 Cup (36 tbs), heated (105 To 115�F)
  Butter/Margarine 4 Tablespoon, softened
  Salt 1 Tablespoon
  All purpose flour/Bread flour 7 1⁄2 Cup (120 tbs)

1. In large bowl, combine warm water, yeast, and 1 teaspoon sugar; stir well to dissolve. Let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes. Add milk, butter, remaining 1/4 cup sugar, salt, and 4 cups flour. Beat well with wooden spoon. Gradually stir in 3 cups flour to make soft dough.
2. Turn dough onto floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes, working in enough of remaining 1/2 cup flour just to keep dough from sticking.
3. Shape dough into ball; place in greased large bowl, turning dough to grease top. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let rise in warm place (80° to 85°F) until doubled in volume, about .1 hour.
4. Grease two 9" by 5" metal loaf pans. Punch down dough. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface and cut in half. Shape each half into rectangle about 12" by 7." Roll each up from a short side. Pinch seam and ends to seal. Place dough, seam side down, in prepared pans. Cover pans loosely with greased plastic wrap; let dough rise in warm place until almost doubled, about 1 hour.
5. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400°F. Bake until browned and loaves sound hollow when lightly tapped on bottom, 30 to 35 minutes. Remove loaves from pans and cool on wire racks.
