Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup ( 4floz/120ml) milk
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons dry yeast
  • 3 1/3 cup (16 1/2 oz/500g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup (6oz/180g) plain yogurt
  • 1 whole egg*
Instructions
  1. In a small jug stir together the lukewarm milk, sugar, and yeast. Let stand for 15 minutes until yeast activates. It will become foamy and start expanding.
  2. In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl combine the yogurt and the egg.

  4. Once the yeast has activated add the yeast mixture and yogurt-egg mixture to the dry ingredients. Using a fork stir everything together until it forms a loose, sticky dough.
  5. If the dough is too dry, add a little bit of milk or water. If it is too soft, add just a little bit of flour.
  6. Once all the ingredients are combined gently knead/ fold the dough together until it forms a rough ball.
  7. Cover the dough tightly with cling wrap and a tea towel and place in a warm spot to proof for 2 hours.
  8. Once the dough has risen it should be about double in size. From here you can take this crazy all-purpose dough and make it into any of the following things!
  9. Cheesy loaf, pizza, naan bread, savory stuffed roll, classic cinnamon rolls, pretzels, jalapeno & cheese stuffed dinner rolls, and braided Nutella loaf.

  10. Keep it in your fridge for up to 4 days. You can freeze it, too.
