  • 1/2 cup milk between 120 and 130 degrees F
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast or instant yeast
  • 3 and 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 large egg beaten


  • In a small bowl stir together the lukewarm milk, sugar, and yeast. Let this mixture stand for 10 to 15 minutes until yeast activates and becomes bubbly.
  • In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • In another small bowl mix the yogurt and the egg. Stir to combine.
  • Once the yeast has activated add the yeast mixture and yogurt/egg mixture to the dry ingredients. Using a fork stir everything together until it forms a loose, sticky dough. If the dough is too dry, add more milk or water. If it is too soft, add just more flour.
  • Gently knead the dough together until it forms a rough ball.
  • Cover the dough with plastic wrap and place in a warm spot like your oven or microwave to rise for 2 hours.
  • Your dough is ready to make the bread of your choice once it has doubled in size. 
  • Refrigerate up to 3 days.
