Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1 1/4 cups lukewarm milk
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled

Steps

  1. 1In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast in the milk and add the sugar. In another bowl, sift the flour and salt together and add the cooled melted butter.
  2. 2Add the yeast mixture to the flour mixture, and turn out onto a floured counter and knead until the dough is smooth and elastic. Place the dough in an oiled bowl, cover with a clean towel and let rise in a warm, draft free place to 45 minutes.
