Instructions:

  1. Using a mixer with a dough maker hook attachment. Pour warm milk in a mixer bowl, add sugar mix really well. Add yeast, mix and let it sit for 5-10 min . ( you will see your yeast will bubble up and activate)
  2. Add all your wet ingredients and turn on your mixer to low setting, slowly add flour.
  3. Keep mixing till the dough will form into a smooth ball and with no lumps. The dough will be sticky DO NOT ADD ANYMORE FLOUR.
  4. Remove the hook attachment. Let the dough sit in the same bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and set in a warm area to rise. I place mine on top of the stove and cover it with kitchen towel.

AboutLily’s Cooking & Home

My story, I met the love of my life when I was 16 and two years later we were married. When we first got married I was not much of a cook, I would buy so many cook books and try recipes over and over again until it would turn out. I never gave up and my husband can tell you I had my share of bad cooking. The more I practiced the better I got. Now we are going on 10 years of happily married. I love to cook and create my own recipe also became a baker, I have also taken interest in doing home design and decor. In my blog I would love to share with you the recipes I create, recipes I find and love to share also tips for home decor and ideas.
