  2. Heat butter and milk until very warm (125 degrees F). With mixer at low speed, beat liquid into dry ingredients. At medium, beat 2 minutes. Beat in 2 eggs, 1 egg white, and 3/4 cup flour, beat 2 minutes. Stir in lemon peel and 1 1/4 cups flour. On floured surface knead dough about 5 minutes working in about 1/2 cup flour; place in greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover; let rise in warm place until double, about 1 1/2 hours.
