Dough recipe using milk & butter

This weather is terrible for making dough…it takes forever to rise and sometimes doesn’t at all. I decided to try again using a variation on my usual recipe and even though it tastes awesome the dough didn’t actually rise as much as I’d like. I love winter but summer is so much better for baking. Anyway recipe below. I hope you enjoy


  • 3 cups plain flour
  • 2 tsps caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp dry yeast
  • Sprinkle of salt
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
    1. Mix flour, sugar, yeast and salt in a bowl
    2. Make a well in the middle and add milk and butter
    3. Mix in bowl then usw hands to bring together into a ball
    4. Layout on a lightly floured surface and kneed for 10 mins
    5. Lightly oil bowl and place dough in. Cover with damp teatowel and let sit until doubled in size…about 1 hr (although its cold here so took nearly 2 hours and still didn’t rise as much as usual) 
    6. Once risen layout again and kneed for a few mins…maybe 2-5
    7. Then it’s ready to use….for bread, rolls, scrolls….whatever you like.

    ***if making scrolls use a rolling pin to roll out in 2 batches. Cover with vegemite and grated cheese. 

     Roll up and cut however big you like, they do grow in the oven. 

    Brush with a little milk. Cook these in a 200 deg oven for 15 mins or until lightly browned.
