In a small pot, scald ½ cup milk; stir in 3 tablespoons sugar, 2 teaspoons salt, and 3 tablespoons butter. Cool to lukewarm. In mixer bowl, dissolve 2 packages dry yeast in 1 ½ cups warm water. Add lukewarm milk mixture and 4 ½ cups flour. If you have a stand mixer, attach bowl to mixer and insert dough hook. Mix on low speed for 2 minutes, until well-blended. Continuing at low speed, add remaining flour, ½ cup at a time, until dough clings to dough hook and cleans sides of bowl, about 3 minutes. Knead on low speed for 7 to 10 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.
Part II—Rising and Baking: (to be uploaded later)
Cover greased dough with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with cooking oil spray, and let rise in a warm place, free from draft, until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour. Punch down dough. Let dough rest for 15 minutes. Divide dough into two equal halves. Shape each half into a loaf. Place each loaf into a greased 9-inch by 5-inch by 3-inch loaf pan. Cover with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with cooking oil spray. Let rise in warm place, free from draft, until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour. Bake at 400 degrees F for 30 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from pans, and cool on wire racks. Serve hot with butter. YUM!
