Simple & Scrumptious Homemade Bread

4 Sep

from Taste of Home

What you will need:

2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
2 cups warm water (105° to 115°)
2/3 cup nonfat dry milk powder
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon salt
6 to 7 cups all-purpose flour

What you will need to do:

In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in the milk, butter, sugar, salt and 4 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a stiff dough.
Turn out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 10 to 12 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
Punch down and divide in half. Shape into two loaves and place in greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 min.
Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown, covering with foil during the last 5 minutes to prevent over-browning if necessary.
