Mix 2 1/4 tsp of yeast with 1/4 cup of warm water in bowl; mix until blended.
Add 5tsp melted butter/margarine, 5tsp sugar, 1 tsp salt and ~1/2 cup of milk (I usually have to add more after I add in the flour). Mix until blended.
Slowly add in 3 cups of flour (I usually do it a cup at a time). Mix until dough comes away from the bowl easily. If it's sticky, you need more flour, if it won't stay together, you need more milk.
Knead on floured surface for 10 minutes.
Place in greased bowl on warm surface and cover. I usually just put it on my preheating oven.
Let it rise for 1 hour.
Reshape into a long, flat shape (as long as your breadpan and 2-3x as wide) and roll into a big log. Make sure the crease is at the bottom, and place into the greased breadpan and cover again. Let it rise for another hour.
Bake for 30mins at 400.
We make two of these every Monday morning and it is delicious! It's perfect toast bread and is so delicious with morning coffee
