Original recipe makes 1 servings



Place yeast, sugar, and warm water in a mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for about 10 minutes, until creamy and foamy. Add melted butter and eggs and mix well. Combine flour with salt, and add flour to mixture, 1 or 2 cups at a time, until mixture forms a soft dough. Pour dough out onto a well-floured board and knead until dough becomes smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Place dough in a large, well-greased bowl, then flip dough over to coat with oil. Cover with plastic wrap or a towel and let stand in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until doubled in size. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Punch dough down and cut into 3 pieces. Form into 3 loaves and place in 3 greased loaf pans. Bake for about 1 hour, or until bread is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped. Let cool before slicing. Makes three loaves.
