Home-Style Yeast Bread

Home-Style Yeast Bread

"Everyone likes the tender texture and slightly sweet taste of this homemade bread. When I'm in the mood to bake, I usually double the recipe and share loaves with friends. The dough also makes lovely rolls. -Launa Shoemaker, Midland City, Alabama"

  1. In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the sugar, butter, salt, eggs and 4 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  2. Punch dough down. Turn onto a floured surface. Divide into thirds. Shape into loaves and place in three greased 9-in. x 5-in. x 3-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.

Really easy. I doubled the recipe and got about 5 medium sized loaves. I also used wheat flour for half of the flour instead of all white. Tastes great and makes great sandwich bread.

Very good! I halved the recipe so it made one large loaf. I also used a Kitchen Aid stand mixer to mix and knead the dough, which makes breadmaking very easy. If you're new to making bread, reme...

This was by far the best bread i have ever had or tasted in years. I have never finished one before due to them always becoming hard, not rising etc.. but this bread was soo perfect and really e...

Excellent! Soft, good tasting bread. I switched one cup of flour to whole wheat, worked out perfectly!

My family loves this recipe! I didn't change a thing - I do usually make the rolls instead, simply because that's what my family prefers. I've made it quite a few times already, for friends and ...
