Ingredients

1 cup warm water
2 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast

6 tablespoons butter, softened
1 1/2 teaspoons salt

3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 cup instant potato flakes
1/4 cup dry milk powder
3 cups flour

 

Step by Step Instructions

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

 

Combine all ingredients in bowl of your mixer. Using the dough hooks, blend on low until ingredients  are combined. At this point you will check to see if you need more flour or more water. Add a little at  a time until the dough is no  longer sticky on your fingers.

 

Knead in the mixer for 5 minutes (

 

Remove dough from bowl and shape into a large round. Spray or oil the  bowl and return the dough  to the bowl. Spray or oil the top of the dough and  cover the bowl with plastic wrap and a dish towel.  Place the bowl in a warm  place until the dough has doubled in size.

 

Remove from bowl onto a clean surface  and simply press the  air out of it gently. Don't punch your dough, it is delicate  and while you may have been taught to  punch it, this does nothing for the  structure of the dough and does not really help to remove the air  as efficiently  as simply pressing those gasses out on the board.

 

Shape your dough into the desired loaf and place it in your favorite pan.

 

Cover with plastic wrap and a towel and place in a  warm spot until the dough is  double in size. This is a good time to preheat  your oven to 350 degrees in preparation of baking your  bread. My dough  usually takes between 30 to 45 minutes to double.

 

Remove the plastic wrap from your dough and place it in the preheated oven.  Bake for 20 minutes.

 

Place a piece of aluminum foil over the bread in the oven and continue to  bake for an additional 20  minutes. This will allow the inside of the bread to  finish baking without the top crust becoming too  dark.

 

Remove bread from oven and if you have baked it in a pan, immediately  remove it from the pan and  place it on a wire rack to cool. Allow bread to  cool for at least 30 minutes before attempting to slice.

 

ENJOY!
