Homemade White Bread

Time: 50 mins

Ingredients

  • 4 1/2 cups water
  • 3/4 cup butter or 3/4 cup margarine
  • 10 -12 cups bread flour
  • 1 cup powdered milk
  • 2 tablespoons yeast
  • 4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup instant potato flakes

Directions

  • 1 In large mixing bowl, combine 6 cups flour, dry milk, yeast, salt, sugar, and potato flakes; set aside.
  • 2 In microwave, heat water and margarine to 110 to 120 degrees.
  • 3 Add water mixture to flour mixture and beat on medium speed with mixer for 2 minutes.
  • 4 Gradually add enough flour for the mixture to form a stiff dough.
  • 5 Turn dough out onto floured board and knead about 10 minutes, adding flour as needed (I use my KitchenAid mixer with a dough hook).
  • 6 Be careful not to add too much flour; the dough should be smooth and elastic.
  • 7 Place the kneaded dough in a large oiled bowl and turn dough over to coat with the oil.
  • 8 Cover the dough with a large cloth and set aside in warm place to rise until it is doubled in size.
  • 9 Punch dough down and turn out onto floured board.
  • 10 Divide into 5 portions, shape each into loaves, and place in greased 4 1/2 x 8 1/2 inch non-stick loaf pans (the dark pans brown the bread better than the shiny pans).
  • 11 Cover pans with a cloth and let rise until doubled.
  • 12 Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for about 25 to 30 minutes.
  • 13 Remove bread from pans immediately and let cool on rack.
  • 14 Brush tops of loaves with butter.
