Homemade Bread

While growing up, our Mom used to make this bread all the time. It goes good with just about any dish, but I like to eat it when it is fresh out of the oven. If I didn’t, it would be gone before I could get any. Especially since my oldest brother would eat a loaf by himself.

This will make two loaves, but you can also make these into dinner rolls. Just roll them into balls instead of loaves.

  • 1 package Yeast
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup lukewarm milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3 1/2 cup flour May need up to 1/4 cup more

Dissolve the yeast in water. Stir in milk, sugar, salt, egg, butter and 2 cups of flour. Mix until smooth. Mix in remaining flour to make a soft dough, just enough to keep it from sticking.

Turn dough onto lightly floured board and knead until smooth and elastic (about 10 minutes)

Please in greased bowl, turn greased side up. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled. This will take about 1.5 hours.

Punch down, shape and place into bread pans. Let rise again in warm place until doubled.

Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes or golden brown.
