In a bowl, combine warm water, sugar, and active dry yeast. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes until frothy.


In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Add the melted butter and activated yeast mixture. Mix until a dough forms.


Knead the dough on a floured surface for 8-10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.


Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours or until it doubles in size.


Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a loaf pan.


Punch down the risen dough and shape it into a loaf. Place it in the greased loaf pan.


Cover the pan with a damp cloth and let the dough rise for an additional 30-45 minutes.


Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the loaf sounds hollow when tapped.


Allow the Homemade White Bread to cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
