3 to 3-1 / 2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 envelope Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup water
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 teaspoons melted butter or margarine
In a large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, and salt. Heat water and 3 tablespoons butter until very warm (120o to 130o F). Gradually add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.
Divide dough into 2 equal portions. Roll each portion to 8-inch square; shape into thin loaves. Place loaves side by side in greased 8 -1 / 2 x 4-1 / 2-inch loaf pan. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 45 minutes.
Spoon melted butter down center of loaf. Bake at 375oF for 30 to 35 minutes or until done. Remove from pan; cool on wire rack.
