Butter Bread is a soft, pillowy, creamy-flavored bread with a hypnotizing aroma that entices you to devour it as soon as it leaves the oven. It is an excellent accompaniment to any sweet or savory sandwich. However, a simple smattering of butter on a warm, freshly cut slice is just as satisfying. So, for those who cannot get enough bread, this is the loaf for you! Try also this Essene Bread.

A favorite among kids!

Mix all dry ingredients in a stand-up mixer, using the paddle attachment, on slow speed for 2 minutes.
Add milk and 3/4 water and run mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes.
Run mixer on high speed. Add water – a little at a time – and beat until the dough is firm, silky and forms into a ball.
Remove, place in slightly oiled bowl, cover the bowl and allow the dough to rest in a cool place for 10 minutes.
Remove from bowl and cut into four pieces. Work each into a torpedo shape. Place on a greased sheet pan. Spritz over dough slightly with water.
Rest in an airtight space for 45 minutes or until double in size.
Preheat the oven to 350F and prepare the middle shelf.
Bake loaves for 35-45 minutes, depending on your oven, until golden brown. Do not open the oven until ready to remove.
Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool for at least 30 minutes.
Eat and enjoy!
Best served warm with your favorite cheese, ham, or other sandwich filler.
