360 grams Barton Springs Mill Marquis '00' or Standard AP or Premium AP
120 grams whole milk
180 grams water
56 grams melted butter
25 grams sugar
8 grams salt
1 packet active dry yeast
Warm the water and milk in the microwave to 85 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients and stir until the dough becomes a single mass. Transfer to a lightly greased bowl or surface and knead it for until it begins to become smooth, about 8-10 minutes.
Transfer the dough to a lightly greased bowl and cover. Set in a warm place and allow rise until puffy but not necessarily doubled in bulk, about 1 to 2 hours.
Punch down the dough and transfer to a lightly oiled surface. Shape the dough into a log about 7-8 inches long.
Place in a lightly greased 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" loaf pan, cover the pan loosely with lightly greased plastic wrap, and allow the bread to rise for about 60 minutes, until it's domed about 1" above the edge of the pan.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until light and golden brown and interior temperature is 190°F. Cool on a rack before slicing. Enjoy!
