No Knead, No Bread Machine Bread

This bread is great for sandwiches!  It is so super easy I am convinced anyone can make fresh, homemade bread!  

Get out your mixer and get ready for the most delicious bread!  

1/2 C. warm milk
1/2 C. hot water (I just turned on my faucet on the hottest it could go and took my water from here)
4 T. melted butter
3 T. brown sugar
3 C. flour
1 1/4 t. salt 
2 t. instant yeast

In order listed, place in your mixers bowl.  With the paddle attachment mix on high until it forms a dough that pulls away from the edges of the bowl.  Change to a bread kneading hook and mix on med. speed until a smooth ball forms (about 5 minutes).

Lightly grease bread pan and with lightly oiled hands press dough into the pan.  Cover with lightly greased plastic and place in a warm spot for 60 minutes or until risen just above the rim of the pan.

Bake bread at 350 for about 35 minutes, until it's light golden brown.

you gave me almost the same recipe awhile back, but it didn't call for milk. what does adding the milk do to it?
