12 Servings


2 hrs

Step 1

 Place the warm water and sugar in a large bowl and sprinkle the yeast on top. Set aside for 5 minutes to allow the yeast to proof.

Step 2

Add the butter and 2 cups of the flour, and beat on medium speed for 3 minutes.

Step 3

Continue to knead, adding an additional 1/2 to 3/4 cup flour, until the dough is smooth and elastic (about 10 minutes).

Step 4

Place the dough in a large greased bowl, and cover loosely with plastic wrap. Allow it to rise in a warm place until doubled in size (30 to 45 minutes).

Step 5

Lightly mist a 5 cup loaf pan with non-stick spray. Punch down the dough and shape it into a loaf.

Step 6

Place the dough in the prepared pan, cover it  with plastic wrap, allow it to rise in a warm place until doubled in size.

Step 7

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Uncover the dough and bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the loaf sounds hollow.
