Ingredients

  • 1/2

    cup whole milk

  • 2

    large eggs

  • 2

    Tbsp sugar

  • 1

    tsp kosher salt

  • 1/2

    cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened

  • 2 1/2

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 1

    package active dry yeast (= 2 1/2 teaspoons)

Directions

Bread Machine: Add all ingredients in order to a bread machine. Set on the dough cycle. When cycle is done (usually 1 1/2 hours for most bread machines) proceed to step 6. By Hand: 1) Heat the milk in a small saucepan over low heat until it's just warm (110-115F). Remove pan from heat and pour milk into a small bowl. Stir in the yeast and 1 cup of the flour. 2) Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let rest for 10 minutes. 3) Combine the butter, sugar, salt and eggs in a mixer bowl with a paddle attachment (or food processor). Add remaining 1 1/2 cups flour and process until smooth. 4) Add the yeast mixture and process again until smooth. 5) Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead 5 minutes, until smooth and elastic. 6) Shape the dough into a loaf and place into 8 1/2 or 9 inch non-stick loaf pan or in a glass loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray. Cover the pan with a clean dish towel and allow to rise for about an hour in a warm location free of drafts. Preheat the oven to 375. Using a sharp knife, score the loaf length wise. Then score the loaf 3 times at equal intervals across. This makes a professional looking loaf and helps it bake evenly. (It can be left plain if desired.) Bake for 25-35 minutes, or until golden. Remove from pan and place the loaf on its side on a cooling rack. Alternate side after 5 minutes (this prevents the loaf from compressing).
