Serves/Makes:1 loaf

Ingredients
  • 3-1/2 cups (825 ml) all-purpose flour, up to 4 cups
  • 1/3 cup (80 ml) sugar
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) salt
  • 1 pkg. dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) milk
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) water
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) butter
  • 3 eggs, at room temperature
Preparation
  • In a large bowl, mix 1-1/2 cups (350 ml) flour, sugar, salt, and yeast.
  • In a saucepan, combine the milk, water and butter.
  • Place over low heat until liquid is warm and the butter soft (but not completely melted).
  • Gradually pour the liquid into the dry ingredients and beat for 3 minutes with a wooden spoon.
  • Add the eggs and one cup flour or enough to make a thick batter.
  • Continue to beat for 2 minutes with the spoon.
  • Stop beating and stir in enough additional flour to make a stiff batter.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and leave at room temperature until the dough has doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
  • Stir the batter down and beat well for about 30 seconds.
  • Pour or spoon into a greased 9 inch tube pan or 2 loaf pans.
  • Cover the pan with wax paper and let rise until the dough has doubled in volume, about 50 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees (175 C.).
  • Bake for 50 minutes or until the loaf is golden brown and a wooden toothpick comes out clean when stuck in the center of the loaf.
  • Carefully remove the loaf from pan.
  • Place on wire rack to cool.
