Easy, delicious and tasty butter sandwich bread. Makes about 2 smaller loaves or one larger.
Butter two 9x5 loaf pans. You may make it in a circular pan as well if you do not have a loaf pan.
Do not cut the bread while still piping hot because it can cause the density. Wait for at least 30 minutes.
For a fluffy loaf, punch down the dough after this first rise and knead it again. Not only does the extra kneading and the second rise produce stronger gluten, but it also distributes the yeast and its gases evenly throughout the dough in smaller pockets. The end result is a loaf with a lighter, finer crumb.
