Ingredients

How to make it

  • Grease large bowl. Flour bread board. In another large bowl, combine 2-1/2 C. flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, and salt with wire whip. Heat water, milk, and butter until very warm (120 to 130 degrees F.) and white bubbles form around the edges. Gradually add to dry ingredients. With electric mixer, beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Scrape bowl occasionally. Add 1/2 C. flour; beat at high for 2 minutes, scraping occasionally. With a wooden spoon, stir in enough* remaining flour to make soft dough.
  • Knead on prepared bread board until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  • If using dough immediately, place in greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover with lightly greased plastic wrap. Allow to rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size for about 30 to 60 minutes. (I use the oven with only the light turned-on. Be sure to remove dough before preheating oven.) If using RapidRise Yeast, cover kneaded dough and let rest on lightly floured board, instead of putting it in a greased bowl, for 10 minutes.)
  • Dough may be frozen after kneading. Divide dough in half with a serrated knife. Shape each into flattened 6-inch disk. Dough will keep for 1 month in an airtight, 1-gallon freezer bag. Defrost in refrigerator for 8 to 16 hours or on the counter top for 4 to 9 hours.
  • Shape, let rise, and bake according to one of the following preparations.

    hmmm, yes, making bread is wonderful - i still make my own from time to time although we can buy about 300 varieties of bread in germany.i'll test your recipe for sure, next time i have visitors (i cannot eat it, gluten intolerance). i sometimes add molasses instead of sugar.

    What about doing your recipe for the cinnamon rolls with frozen bread dough from the store, only because my finger's couldn't handle the kneading, because of the artherirtis [ sorry for the bad spelling ].
    P.S.
    You deserve the 5 star rating for the homemade bread, my mother use to make home made bread, love the smell of bread baking in the oven nothing like it, butter melting and peanut butter and jam, all on a slice of bread from the oven, oh yum yum.
