Ingredients

Directions

  • In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup warm water. Add remaining water, dry milk, oil, sugar, salt, and 3 cups of flour; beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 3 minutes, or until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.

  • Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic, about 6 to 8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease surface. Cover the bowl with a damp cloth. Let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

  • Punch the dough down, and divide in half. Shape into loaves. Place in two greased 9 X 5 x 3 inch loaf pans. Grease the tops of the loaves, and cover with a damp cloth. Let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.

  • Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 35 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove bread from pans to cool on wire racks. Brush with melted butter or margarine.

Beautiful and delicious quick and easy and very flexible. Sometimes I use honey instead of sugar sometimes a wheat mixture instead of white most of the time I don't use the milk at all. Very enjoyable and convenient and baking and freezing one loaf until later in the week (delicious when thawed) keeps my family in bread daily.

I have tried quite a few white bread recipes but this was the best. I used "fast action"/"quick rise" yeast and after kneading shaped each loaf and put in the loaf tins to let rise for 1 hour and then straight into the oven. Worked really well - will definitely use this recipe again.

As an experienced baker and kind of a bread snob I am happy to admit that this recipe makes a delicious loaf of bread! Simple it most definitely is and very easy too--especially if you have a stand mixer and dough hook. I used one loaf to make Thanksgiving stuffing and the other for sandwiches and snacking. The crust as others have noted is awesome. I use olive oil instead of vegetable oil and half the amount of honey instead of white sugar. What a great recipe--thanks George!

i love it! it's tasty and i added some roasted garlic (it gets soft and you can knead it in before you put it in the loaf pans) and cheddar cheese chunks. it's perfect for a stew or soup or sandwhiches it's just perfect!

Our fav. recipe. We make pepperoni rolls add extra sugar and make cin. rolls slice and add butter with garlic and cheese then toast in the oven to have w/dinner. Or we love it alone warm from the oven. Unlike some homemade breads this recipe keeps well and doesn't dry out quickly (not that it ever lasts long). I have shared this recipe many many times. Thanks.

It takes some work I use my Kitchenaide then finish by hand because it wont fit in my bread maker but it is so good I haven't used by bread maker since I have found this recipe or another bread recipe. Everyone that has tried my bread has loved it.
