Ingredients
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, melted, plus more for buttering the bowl and loaf pans
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 5 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for flouring the board
Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Combine the yeast and 2 cups warm water in a mixing bowl and stir to dissolve. Add the butter, sugar and salt. Use a wooden spoon to stir in one-third of the flour until smooth. Add another third of the flour and stir, then turn it out onto a floured board to knead. Knead it over 15 minutes, adding the rest of the flour as you knead. Don't let it get dry too fast; it should stay sticky. Put the dough in a buttered bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let it rise for 1 hour.

  • Knead the dough another 5 minutes, place it back in the bowl and let it rise another hour.

  • Butter 2 loaf pans. Shape the dough into 2 loaves and transfer them to the prepared pans. Cover and let rise for 45 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  • Bake the loaves until golden brown on top and cooked through, 30 to 35 minutes. Remove to a rack to cool.
