Ingredients:  
1 stick of Butter
1 cup of milk
cup of sugar
1 tsp. salt
4 eggs
1 pkg. yeast
cup water
7 cups flour (approximately)

Directions:
Directions:

- Scald the milk and remove it from the burner
- add the butter, sugar and salt and let them melt (this allows the milk to cool before adding the yeast (or you'll kill the yeast)
- dissolve the yeast in the water
- add eggs and dissolved yeast to the milk and beat (with a mixer)
add 2-3 cups of flour (slowly) and mix....that's probably all you can add with a mixer, so grab a wooden spoon and continue to add the flour (I can RARAELY add all 7 cups of flour to the mix, get the dough to a good consistency, sprinkle flour on a pastry cloth and dump the dough onto it
- kneed the dough for about 5 minutes, but only to a soft dough, if you knead it too much, it gets too dense.
- place into a greased bowl, cover with a cloth and let rise to double in bulk
- punch it down, form into loaves (I usually make 2-3 braided loaves)
- place loaves in a greased bread pan, cover and let rise for about an hour
- bake at 375 for 30-40 minutes

(you may wish to make this into smaller knots or buns, if so bake at 425 for 15 minutes)

Personal Notes:
Vicki's family refers to it as "Bob's Bread, but this is a recipe my mother got from her mother-in-law to make for our family.
I usually make this at Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter for sharing. It is a bit sweet, but it works great as a sandwich bread for leftovers.
