Add the yeast and water to the flour mixture. Knead in the bowl until it is no longer sticky. Cover and let rise one hour in a draft-free place. Dough should double in size. Punch down and knead again. Divide dough and put into two greased loaf pans. Pierce with fork along top to allow excess air to escape. Let rise until dough is a little higher than the pans. Bake in preheated oven at 350 for 1 hour. Cool in pans 15 minutes. Remove from pans and rub tops with butter so crust will be soft. Shared By: Pat Stockett
