This bread takes about three hours to make and about 1/2 hour of hands-on work.

Ingredients

    * 1/3 cup lukewarm water
    * 1/2 teaspoon sugar
    * 2 packets active dry yeast
    * 3 tablespoons butter
    * 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
    * 1 teaspoon salt
    * 1 cup hot water or buttermilk
    * 4 cups white flour

Procedure

   1. In a bowl, mix the lukewarm water, 1/2 teaspoon sugar, and active dry yeast. Let 
stand until yeast mixture becomes frothy and increases in volume.
   2. While the yeast mixture is standing, in a separate large mixing bowl, mix the 
butter, 1 tablespoon light brown sugar, salt, and hot water or buttermilk.
   3. Once the yeast mixture becomes frothy, add the yeast mixture to the separate 
large mixing bowl.
   4. Add 2 cups of white flour to the large mixing bowl. Stir at slow speed with an 
electric mixer for 1 minute. After that, mix at medium speed for 3 minutes, scraping 
the sides of the bowl frequently.
   5. With the remaining 2 cups of white flour, add the remaining flour at about 1/4 to 
1/2 cups at a time to the large mixing bowl, and continually mix with a spoon until the 
mixture begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl or it becomes difficult to add 
more flour.
   6. Cover the mixture with plastic wrap and a towel. Place in a warm room with no 
drafts until the batter doubles in volume. About 45 minutes to 1 hour.
   7. After the batter was allowed to sit, stir it down with a spoon (about 25 
strokes).
   8. Divide the batter into 2 loaf pans. Wet fingers and push into the corners and 
smooth out.
   9. Cover both setups with plastic. Place in a warm room and let the batter rise 
until it just reaches the tops of the pans (about 25 minutes). Watch carefully and 
don't let the batter rise too high (if it does rise too high, punch it down a little 
bit and let it rise again.)
  10. After the batter was allowed to rise in the loaf pans, bake at 375 for 30 to 45 
minutes. The bread is done when it sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom of the pan 
and is browned to the baker's preference.
  11. Turn out on a wire rack and let cool.
