  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons 2 packets active dry yeast
  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons butter melted
  • 5 to 5 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/3 cup baking soda
  • 3 cups warm water
  • Coarse salt
  • 8 tablespoons butter melted


  1. Warm up the milk in the microwave for just about one and a half minutes. I use my pyrex measuring cups to heat it in. It should be about 110ยบ. If it's too hot it will kill the yeast. You should be able to comfortably keep your finger in it.
  2. Stir in the yeast and one tablespoon of the brown sugar and let it sit for about 10 minutes.
