Directions:
Spray 12-cup fluted tube cake pan or a 10-inch angel food (tube) cake pan with cooking spray. In large bowl, stir 1 cups of the flour, sugar, salt and yeast until well mixed. In 1-quart saucepan, heat milk and cup of the butter over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until very warm (120-130). Add milk mixture and the egg to the flour mixture. Beat with electric mixer on low speed 1 minute, scraping bowl frequently, until flour mixture is moistened. Beat on medium speed 3 minutes, scraping bowl frequently. With wooden spoon, stir in enough of the remaining flour, 1 cup at a time, until dough is soft, leaves side of bowl and is easy to handle (dough may be slightly sticky). Place dough on lightly floured surface. Knead 5-10 minutes or until dough is smooth and springy. In small microwaveable bowl, microwave remaining cup butter on high 30-50 seconds or until melted. Shape dough into 24 balls. Dip each ball into melted butter. Layer balls evenly in pan. Cover pan loosely with plastic wrap; let rise in warm place 20-30 minutes or until doubled in size. Dough is ready if indentation remains when touched. Remove plastic wrap. Move oven rack to low position so that top of pan will be in center of oven. Heat oven to 350. Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan 2 minutes. Place heatproof serving plate upside down on pan; holding plate and pan with pot holders, turn plate and pan over together; remove pan. Serve warm, pulling bread apart with 2 forks or with fingers.
