Rapid Mixing Method for Yeast Breads
In a mixing bowl, combine flour (about 2 cups), sugar, active dry or quick-rise yeast, salt and any seasonings.
In a saucepan, heat liquid ingredients (water, milk, honey, molasses and butter or oil) to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat just until moistened.
Add any eggs; beat until smooth. Gradually stir in enough of the remaining flour to form a dough of the desired consistency.
