  1. Combine the yeast, flour, sugar, salt, and ascorbic acid in a bowl
  2. Combine the melted butter, egg, and milk.

  4. Knead the dough for several minutes until stretchy and smooth.
  5. Place the dough in an oiled bowl. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size (about 1–1.5 hours).
  6. Gently deflate the dough, and let rest for 5 minutes.
  7. Cut the dough into two pieces, and shape each piece into a loaf.
  8. Place each loaf into a greased loaf pan. Brush with melted butter, cover, and let rise in a warm place for about 1 hour.
  9. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Bake the loaves for about 25–30 minutes until cooked through.
