1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons salt
2 packages dry yeast
2/3 cup milk, scalded, cooled
2/3 cup lukewarm water
2 eggs, beaten
5 cups flour


Soften yeast in half the water with a pinch of sugar added. Set aside.

Combine milk, oil, sugar, salt and remaining water. Stir in one cup of flour, then add the eggs and yeast mixture. Mix in the remaining 4 cups of flour; turn out onto floured counter and knead for about 2 minutes until smooth.

Grease a large bowl with oil, then place the dough in the bowl to rise. Let rise for about 45 minutes, or until double in size; punch down and let rise again.

Make into sandwich buns or sweet rolls such as cinnamon or jelly.

Made bear claws out of these; this dough is what makes the whole recipe work. TOTALLY RECOMMEND!

REVIEW: 4 star recipe rating
Recipe was simple to follow, but there were concerns since I've never dealt with this type of dough before. First, it feels heavy, and second, when it calls for lukewarm water, be sure that it's more than a little warm and that the yeast bubbles up.

I didn't bake this dough; I'm going to use it for a bear claw recipe. I recommend this, and if you wish to see a full process, feel free to visit my blog!
