Directions:
Scald milk, stir in sugar, salt, and butter or margarine. Cool until lukewarm. Measure warm water into a large warm bowl. Sprinkle yeast and stir until dissolved. Add lukewarm milk mixture and 2 cups of flour. Beat until smooth. Add enough additional flour to make a soft dough (the remaining 3/4 cup). Turn out onto lightly floured board and knead 8-10 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Form into smooth ball and place in a greased bowl, turning in order to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place free from draft for about an hour or until dough has doubled in size. Punch down and let rest 15 minutes. Place in a greased loaf pan and shape into a loaf. Cover and let rise until it has doubled in size once again. Bake in a hot oven - 400 about 30 minutes. Remove from pan and cool.
