  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt

Instructions

  1. In measuring cup, stir warm water, sugar and yeast. Let stand for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until mixture is foamy.
  2. Meanwhile, in large bowl stir together milk, butter, and salt. Next, add yeast mixture and stir all together. Add 2 1/2 cups of flour, blend together, then stir in as much of remaining flour as necessary to form soft dough.
