Step 1: Ingredients
- 1/4 cup warm water
- 1 tsp sugar
- 3 1/4 tsp active dry yeast (1 package)
- 1 Cups Water
- 3/4 tbsp salt
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil or melted butter
- 6 cups flour
Step 2: Set Up Yeast
Mix together 1/4 cup of warm water with 1 tsp sugar and sprinkle with yeast. Let the mixture sit until it starts to ferment (about 5 minutes).
Step 3: Whisk the Base
Next in a mixing bowl with a wire whisk, whisk together 1 cups water with, salt, sugar, 1 egg and oil.
Step 4: Add to Yeast
Add the milk mixture to the yeast mixture along with 1 cup of flour and whisk until smooth or in a stand mixer with a hook attachment use that.
Step 5: Add the Rest of the Flour
Slowly add the rest of the flour while mixing with a wooden spoons or mixer with a dough hook attachment, (Note: When mixing with a wooden spoon stir until the dough starts coming away from the sides of the bowl and a ball starts to form. Switch to your hands and knead the dough while adding the rest of the flour). It's best to move the dough to a floured surface. The dough is ready when is smooth and elastic.
Step 6: Let It Rise
Let it proof in a greased bowl with a damp towel over it for 45-60 minutes (grease the top of the dough once in the bowl so it doesn't stick to the towel).
Step 7: Punch and Roll
Then punch it down and separate it in to preferred sized loaves, I go about soft ball size. Lay them in a greased bread pa, cover and let rise for another 45 minutes.
Step 8: Bake
Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. The bread will turn a golden brown and sound hollow when tapped.
Step 9: Pull Out and Butter
Once out of the oven brush with butter and let set for 15 minutes, then remove and cool the loaves on wire racks.
