Grandma's Batter Bread

This homemade yeast bread takes some time to rise, but it really couldn't be any easier to make!

Grandma's Batter Bread

2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 1/4 cups warm water (110 degrees)
2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 cups flour

Mix together melted butter, sugar, salt, yeast and 1 1/4 cups flour.  Add warm water and beat by hand until mixture is smooth and has no lumps remaining.  Mix in remaining flour (1 3/4 cups) until dough is smooth.  Cover with a clean cloth and let rise until doubled in size (about 1 hour).  Stir dough down gently and pour into a lightly greased 9x5 pan (the batter will be sticky).  Cover and let rise again until the dough has doubled in size (about 30 minutes). Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees.

I might try this for dinner tonight. It would go well with a big pot of chili. Thank you.
