Shaker Daily Loaf

My version –

Shaker Daily Loaf

4 1/2 teaspoon caked fast acting yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1 3/4 cups milk
6 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 teaspoons sea salt
5 cups all-purpose flour

Dissolve the yeast in warm water in a large mixing bowl. Warm the milk and melt the butter in it. Stir in the sugar and salt, remove from heat and allow to cool to lukewarm.

Add this to the yeast bowl along with 3 cups of the flour. Beat until smooth with a mixer. Add the remaining flour and knead until smooth and elastic.

Form into a bowl, and place the dough on a parchment covered pan and butter the top of the dough with about 2 tablespoons butter, enough to cover the whole part exposed to the air. Cover the dough with a very large mixing bowl and allow to rise until double in bulk.

Punch down and shape into 2 loaves for large loaf pans. Place in loaf pans, then again brush the top of the dough and allow to rise until double in bulk.

Bake at 400 degrees F for about 30 minutes.
