– whole milk – instant yeast – eggs – butter – flour
Warm 1 cup milk to between 105º – 110º. On a stovetop, it should simmer around the edges, but do not boil.
In the microwave, use half power and stir every 30 seconds until it's warm but not hot. Add 2 1/4 tsp yeast and allow to proof 5 minutes.
Melt 1/3 cup butter and allow it to cool. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine 2 large eggs, 3/4 tsp salt, and 2 TBSP sugar. Beat together.
Add melted, cooled butter, milk, yeast mixture, and 4 cups of flour. With the dough hook attachment, mix on low to combine, stopping to scrape down the edges of the bowl.
Add the remaining 1/2 cup of flour a couple tablespoons at a time with the mixer running on low. You may not need all of the remaining flour.
