  • In a separate bowl, combine milk with sugar, butter and salt; let cool to lukewarm and add 2 cups of flour to make a batter.

  • Add remaining flour or enough to make a soft dough.
  • Knead well, cover and let rise till doubled in bulk, about 2 hours (depending upon the temperature in the kitchen).
