Step 1

Combine first 7 ingredients in a large mixing bowl; cool to lukewarm (105° to 115°).

Step 2

Dissolve yeast in warm water, stirring well; let stand 5 minutes or until bubbly.

Step 3

Add dissolved yeast, eggs, and 3 cups flour to milk mixture; beat until smooth. Add remaining flour to form a soft dough.

Punch dough down; turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Let rest 15 minutes. Divide dough into 2 equal portions; shape each portion into a round loaf. Place each loaf in a 9-inch round cakepan. Cover and repeat rising procedure 45 minutes or until doubled in bulk.
