Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix together flour, salt, powdered milk, sugar and yeast in a 4 quart mixing bowl. Pour in egg, butter and water and mix until all the dry ingredients are absorbed and the dough forms a ball. If the dough seems stiff, add water until dough is soft.
  2. Lightly dust countertop with flour, transfer dough to floured surface and knead or mix on medium speed with a dough hook. Continue kneading or mixing for 6-8 minutes. Lightly oil a large bowl and transfer dough to bowl, rolling to coat with oil. Cover bowl with plastic wrap.
  3. Ferment at room temperature for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until dough doubles in size.
  4. Remove dough from bowl and divide as necessary for bread, buns or rolls. Mist the dough lightly with spray oil and cover with tea towel and allow to rest for 20 minutes.
  5. Lightly oil 2 loaf pans and place loaves in pans. For rolls and buns line 2 sheet pans with parchment paper. For hamburger buns, gently press down on rolls to form desired shape.
  6. Mist the top of the dough with spray oil and cover with tea towel and allow to rise for 60-90 minutes until dough doubles in size.
  7. Preheat the oven to 350 F for loaves or 400 F for rolls or buns.
  8. Bake rolls or buns for 15 minutes or until golden brown on top. Bake loaves 35-45 minutes rotating 180 degrees halfway through to ensure even baking.
  9. When loaves have finished baking, remove immediately from pans and cool on a wire rack for at least 1 hour.
