Recipe Ingredients

1 package active dry yeast

1/2 cup nonfat dry milk

1/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon salt

4 cups sifted flour

1 1/2 cups water

1/2 cup butter or regular margarine

2 eggs


In large bowl, stir together yeast, dry milk, sugar, salt and 1 1/2 cups flour; set aside.

In 2-quart saucepan over low heat, heat water and butter until very warm (120 to 130 degrees F).

Using a mixer at low speed, gradually beat water mixture into yeast mixture until well blended.

Increase speed to medium; beat 2 minutes.

Add eggs and 1 cup flour; beat 2 minutes more.

Using a wooden spoon, gradually stir in remaining 1 1/2 cups flour until mixture is well blended and forms a thick batter.

Cover with towel and let rise in warm place until doubled, about 50 minutes.

Turn batter into a well-greased 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan. Spread batter evenly into corners of pan. Do not let rise.

Bake in a 350 degree F oven 30 to 35 minutes or until browned.

Cut into squares.

Serve warm.
