  • Melt butter (or alternative) on low heat in a saucepan, add milk (or alternative) and heat until lukewarm.
  • Add eggs plus the milk and butter to dry mixture in a large bowl. Use a flat-bladed spatula to mix until dough comes together.

  • Transfer to a lightly oiled bowl, cover and set aside in a warm place for 60-90mins or until dough has doubled in size.
