is the recipe that came with our Kitchen Aid, and it's great for
basic white bread. This makes 2 loaves.
pkgs. active dry yeast
1/2 c warm water (105 to 115 degrees)
to 6 cups flour
milk, sugar, salt and butter in small saucepan. Heat over low
heat until butter starts to melt and sugar dissolves; cool to
lukewarm. Dissolve yeast in water in warmed mixer bowl. Add milk
mixture and 4 1/2 c of flour. Attach bowl and dough hook. Turn
to speed 2 and mix 1 minute. Add in about 1 cup more, 1/2 cup
at a time until dough clings to hook and cleans sides of bowl.
Knead on speed 2 for 2 minutes longer, or until dough is smooth
and elastic. Dough will be slightly sticky to the touch. Place
in an oiled bowl, turning to oil the top. Cover and let rise in
warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch down dough and divide
in half. Shape each into a loaf and place in greased loaf pans.
Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled in bulk, about
1 hour. Bake at 400°F for about 30 minutes. Remove from pans
and let cool on cooling rack.
