  6. Let the air out from the dough by punching nicely. Roll it back in a circle and make it like a donut shape. Place it a pan..

When making bread -When placing yeast and salt in a bowl at the beginning, do not put it next to each other! When yeast touches salt before the yeast is dissolved in liquid, the salt will stop yeast from working. -Always use warm milk and unsalted butter Mix all the ingredients except for butter in a bowl. When it forms a soft dough, add butter and knead once more. Knead the dough on a floor surface. Mix together flour, sugar, salt, yeast and warm milk in a bowl.
