  • 3 Tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
  • 4 cups of flour
  • 1 package (2¼ teaspoons) instant yeast
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar or 3 Tablespoons honey


  1. Warm up the milk and water until they are 105-115 degrees.Dissolve the yeast and sugar in the milk and water and allow to stand just until foamy, about 5 min.Add the butter and salt to the liquid ingredients.Add the flour and mix until it's all incorporated into the dough.Knead the dough using a stand mixer, the dough setting on a bread machine, or your hands.Allow the dough to rise for about 20 minutes in a warm place.Punch the dough down, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and allow to rise until it doubles in size, about 40-60 min.Take out the dough and pat it into a rectangular shape on a lightly floured surface.Roll the dough tightly, starting on the short side, into a cylinder.Place into a greased bread pan.Lightly spritz the top of the bread with a little oil, cover gently with plastic wrap and let it rise again, until it doubles in size.Once the bread rises, melt ½ Tablespoon butter and brush it on the bread.Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and bake the bread for about 40 min until golden brown.
