yeast, active dry
creamed, heated to lukewarm
unbleached all-purpose flour
Dissolve yeast in warm water.
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl, except add the flour a little at a time (it may take up to 2½ cups of flour).
Beat until well mixed and mixture is stiff but not heavy (standard bread dough feeling).
Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled.
Punch down and put dough in a bread pan, or arrange in a round shape on a greased cookie sheet.
Let rise again. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes at 350℉ (180℃).
While warm, bursh loaf with soft butter, sprinkle well with salt.
