INGREDIENTS
 6 1/2 to 7 1/2 cups  all-purpose flour
 2 1/2 teaspoons salt
 1 envelope instant yeast
 1/4 cup sugar
 2 3/4 cups very warm water (45C)
 1/4 cup neutral-flavored oil (like grapeseed, vegetable, avocado)
 Butter for top of loaves
DIRECTIONS:

  1. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the dough hook , combine THREE cups of the flour, salt, yeast and sugar.
  2. Add the water and oil and mix until combined. The mixture will be thinner than bread dough.
  3. Cover the bowl and let the batter rest for 10 minutes
  4. With the mixer running, gradually add another 3 to 4 cups of flour, until the dough comes together in a well combined ball that clears the bottom and sides of the bowl and doesn’t leave a lot of doughy residue on your fingers when touched while still being just slightly tacky (not overfloured and dense).
  5. Knead for about 2 minutes until the dough is smooth .
  6. Lightly grease a large bowl. Transfer the dough to the prepared bowl, cover with greased plastic wrap or a light kitchen towel, and let rise until doubled, about an hour or so.
  7. Lightly punch down the dough and divide it into two equal pieces.
  8. Grease two 8 1/2-inch by 4 1/2-inch bread pans.
  9. Press each piece of dough into a thick rectangle about 8-inches long; roll it up, pressing on the seams, and pinching the final seam together.
  10. Place the dough loaves into the prepared pans.
  11. Cover with lightly greased plastic wrap or thin kitchen towels and let rise until doubled and the dough has risen about 1-inch above the top rim of the pan, about an hour or so.
  12. While the dough rises, preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
  13. Bake the bread for 30-32 minutes until golden and baked through.
  14. Remove from the oven and turn the bread out onto a wire rack. Immediately brush the tops of the loaves with melted butter
  15. Let the bread cool completely.
