Ingredients:  
1 pkg. active dry yeast (1 T.)

1 T. salt
2 T. sugar
5 to 6 c. all-purpose flour

Directions:
In a large mixing bowl dissolve yeast in water, and let stand until foaming, about 5 minutes. Stir in warm milk, melted butter, salt, and sugar, and blend well. Stir in 3 cups flour, 1 cup at a time. Beat 50 strokes. Add 1 cup flour, and beat until smooth. Work in 1 cup flour more with fingers. Dough should be a rough mass, pulling clear of the sides of bowl.

Turn out onto a well-floured surface, and knead, adding only as much remaining flour as necessary. Keeping hands floured, knead dough until soft and satiny and no longer sticky, about 10 minutes. Place in an oiled bowl, turning to coat top, cover with plastic wrap, and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/2 hours. Test by poking with finger. If dent remains, dough is risen.

Punch down and knead out air bubbles. Divide in half, and press each piece into a rough oval as long as your loaf pan. Fold together in thirds, like a business letter, pinch seam closed and place in a greased loaf pan, seam side down. Cover with a cloth and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375F. Bake for 45 minutes or until loaves sound hollow when tapped. Remove from pans and cool on a wire rack.
