Basic White Bread

Ingredients

Recommended Hamilton Beach® Product:  Stand Mixers

  • 1 pkg active dry yeast
  • 1 1/4 cups warm water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3-3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Directions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine yeast and 1/4 cup warm water. Stir until dissolved. Add remaining warm water, butter, sugar and salt. Stir until mixed.
  2. Add 3 cups of flour and mix* until blended. Add enough of the remaining flour until dough forms a smooth ball that is slightly sticky to the touch.
  3. Place dough in large, greased bowl. Cover and let rise until double in size, about 1 hour.
  4. Punch dough down and shape into loaf. Place loaf into a 9x5-inch greased loaf pans and let rise until double in size, about an hour.
  5. Bake at 350°F for 40 minutes.

Serves: 4 (1 lb. servings)

Note: Use mixer equipped with dough hooks.

Success Tip:  Warm water for dissolving dry yeast should be between 105°F and 115°F. If a thermometer isn't available, run hot water over your wrist. It should feel very warm, but not uncomfortably hot.
