In the meantime, take a small saucepan and melt 3 tablespoons of butter at medium heat. Remove the saucepan from the heat and allow it to cool down a bit. Add 1 teaspoon of salt, melted butter and the yeast mixture to the flour mixture. Add the remaining three cups of flour gradually to the mixture while stirring. As the mixture becomes harder, pour it out onto the clean counter and begin kneading it.

Punch and knead the mixture hard until it is perfectly prepared. Now place the dough into a bowl. Cover the bowl with a clean cloth and set it aside to rise for at least one hour until it is double its original size.

In the meantime, grease your bread pans with butter. After your dough is doubled its starting size, knead it for around three to four minutes more to get rid of all the air bubbles. Shape your dough to place it into the bread pans, and cover it for around 30 minutes to 1 hour to raise more.
