Famous Bread

Here is the recipe for the bread that I made for the sacrament for a few months, and these are the loaves that I just sold to the Turleys. It's really yummy!
1 c. milk
1 heaping T. active dry yeast
1/4 c. sugar
3/4 tsp. salt
1 egg lightly beaten
1/3 c. butter, margerine, or shortening (softened)
31/2 c. all purpose flour
Preheat oven to 350. Heat milk in microwave so that it is warm to the touch, (a trick is to stir it with a fork and make sure all the milk is warm especially when doubling or tripling it) approximately 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add yeast and sugar to milk, mix, and let sit for 10-15 minutes until bubbles form. To yeast mixture, add salt, beaten egg, and butter. Then add the flour, one cup at a time, mixing between each addition. Mix until dough cleans the sides of the bowl and forms one ball in the center. Remove the dough from the bowl and knead it for a few minutes. Form it into one big cemi-circle and put it in a greased bowl. Let it rise for about 30 minutes. Then seperate it into sections, and form the dough into ovals. Place them in greased bread pans and let rise for about 10 more minutes. Cook bread until crust is golden brown. Take out of the oven and dump onto cooling rack. Glaze it with butter, and let it cool, or eat it warm!

How long do you cook it for? And how many loaves does it make? I want to try making bread (not in a breadmaker) and this looks really good.
