Working on that learn how to make bread goal.  Making bread is hard!  But this turned out pretty good even though I had my doubts.

1 cup warm milk

1 cup warm water

4 tablespoons butter, softened

4 tablespoons sugar

2 teaspoons salt

1 1/2 tablespoons instant yeast

4 1/2 – 6 cups unbleached white flour (I used bread flour)

1  With dough hook in place, add milk, water, butter, sugar, salt, half the flour, and the yeast to the mixing bowl.  Mix on low to incorporate.  Allow batter to sit for 15 – 30 minutes, until it becomes bubbly.

2  Turn on mixer to speed 1 then increase to speed 2 and continue adding remaining flour, a little at a time, until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.  Continue kneading at speed 2 for 5 – 6 minutes until the dough is smooth and elastic.

3  Lightly flour your hands and counter.  Divide dough in two equal portions and shape into loaves.  Place in greased loaf pans and let rise until doubled in size, 30 – 60 minutes.

4  Bake at 350 for 30 – 40 minutes or until golden brown and internal temperature reaches 190 – 200 F.
