Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large bowl stir together 1-1/4 cups of the flour, the yeast, and 1 teaspoon salt. Add 1-1/4 cups warm water (120 degree F to 130 degree F) and 1 tablespoon of the oil. Beat with an electric mixer on low to medium speed for 30 seconds, scraping sides of bowl. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. Stir in as much of the remaining flour as you can.

Instructions Checklist
