Activate Yeast:

In a small bowl, combine the warm water and sugar. Sprinkle the yeast over the top and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes, until it becomes foamy.

Mix Ingredients:

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Add the activated yeast mixture and softened butter. Stir until a shaggy dough forms. If the dough seems too dry, add additional water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the dough comes together.

Knead the Dough:

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead the dough for about 8-10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic. You can also use a stand mixer with a dough hook attachment for this step.

First Rise:

Place the dough in a greased bowl, turning once to coat the dough. Cover the bowl with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap. Let the dough rise in a warm, draft-free place for about 1-1.5 hours, or until it has doubled in size.

Shape the Loaf:

After the dough has risen, punch it down to release any air bubbles. Turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and shape it into a loaf. You can do this by gently flattening the dough into a rectangle, then rolling it up tightly and pinching the seams closed.

Second Rise:

Place the shaped loaf into a greased 9x5-inch loaf pan. Cover it loosely with a clean kitchen towel and let it rise for another 30-45 minutes, or until it has risen about 1 inch above the rim of the pan.

Preheat Oven:

While the dough is rising, preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

Bake the Bread:

Once the dough has finished its second rise, place the loaf pan in the preheated oven. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the bread is golden brown on top and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.

Cool and Enjoy:

Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes. Then, transfer the loaf to a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.
