     Excellent White Bread

Category   Desserts - Breads
Sub Category   None
Servings   Makes 2 loaves
Preptime   4 hours 15 min

2 teaspoons/7 grams active dry yeast (1 package)
1 cups/355 milliliters lukewarm milk
3 tablespoons/38 grams granulated sugar
1 tablespoon/15 grams kosher salt
3 tablespoons/43 grams butter, melted, more for greasing bowl & pans & brushing tops of loaves
2 eggs
5 to 6 cups/625 grams to 750 grams all-purpose flour

1) In a large electric mixer bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup warm milk and 1 tablespoon of sugar. 2) Add the remaining warm milk, the sugar, the salt, the butter and the eggs. Add 5 cups flour and mix with paddle attachment until smooth, about 2 minutes. 3) Switch to hook attachment and knead on low speed, adding more flour if necessary until dough is stiff and slightly tacky, about 10 minutes. (See Tip)
4) Grease a large bowl with butter and turn dough out into the bowl. Flip over dough so greased side is up, cover with plastic wrap or a kitchen towel and set in a warm, draft-free spot until doubled in size, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. 5) Generously butter two 9-x-5 loaf pans.
6) When dough has doubled in size, turn it out onto floured surface and knead for 3 minutes. Return to greased bowl, cover and let rise again for 30 minutes. 7) Press down dough with your hand to expel the air. Divide dough in half and place each half into a loaf pan. Brush tops of loaves with remaining melted butter. 8) Cover and let rise until dough is just above the tops of pans, 45 minutes to 1 hour.
9)Heat oven to 400 degrees. Bake bread for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 20 to 30 minutes, or until loaves sound hollow when tapped, the tops are brown and the internal temperatures are 200 degrees. 10) Remove loaves from pans and let cool on wire racks. TIPS I made this loaf without any appliances and it was a remarkably easy recipe to mix by hand, kneading up quickly and with little mess or adjustment. Will definitely make again! I add two tablespoons of vinegar to make sure it does not mold in the 4 days it is being eaten.
Serving Suggestions
Fresh loaves may be sealed in freezer bag and frozen
