  • Dissolve 1 tbsp (15 mL) sugar in warm water in large bowl of electric mixer. Sprinkle in yeast and stir to dissolve. Let stand 5 minutes or until frothy. Add 1/2 cup (125 mL) sugar, salt, and melted butter and stir. Beat in half the flour and continue adding flour, 1 cup (250 mL) at a time until a soft, smooth dough forms. Remove to a lightly floured surface and knead, about 10 minutes. Place in greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap and tea towel and let rise in warm place, about 1 hour or until doubled. Remove and punch down. Grease 4 9" x 5" (23 cm x 13cm) loaf pans. Divide dough into 4 equal portions. Shape each into a loaf. Place in prepared pans and cover with tea towels. Let rise 45-60 minutes or until almost doubled. Brush with melted butter if desired.
  • Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Bake, 20-25 minutes or until an internal temperature of 190°F (88°C).
