Grandmother's Fabulous Dough

1 cup milk
3/4 cup butter or shortening
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp salt

2 eggs
4 cups flour (measure lightly)

1 pkg dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1/8 tsp sugar

Heat milk, butter, 1/4 cup sugar and salt until butter melts, cool to lukewarm.

While milk & butter are heating, dissolve yeast into water and sprinkle with sugar.

Beat milk mix into yeast. Add 2 cups flour and beat for 2 minutes. Beat in eggs, then add 1 cup flour and beat 2 minutes. Beat (or use spoon) remaining flour in a little at a time until mixed well.

Turn into a greased bowl, grease top of ball of dough, cover loosely with plastic wrap, but seal the edge and place in warm area to rise. About 2 hours.

Punch down, form bread (either into loafs or rolls), place in appropriate pans, cover once again and let rise 1 hour.

Bake rolls at 375 for 8-10 minutes. Check frequently! Brush with butter to make a nice soft crust.
Bake loaves 25-30 minutes.


  1. This is making me crazy-hungry. I love homemade bread.

  2. I am printing your recipe to give a try, perhaps tonight. I am going to try to make them in four small loaf pans. Do you think that would work?
