Recipe Ingredients:

1 (0.25-ounce) packet active dry yeast, or 2 1/4 teaspoons
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup warm water
3/4 cup milk, scalded and cooled to room temperature
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup plain yogurt
2 cups all-purpose or bread flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup butter, melted
2 cups all-purpose or bread flour
1 cup whole wheat flour

Cooking Directions:

  1. In a small saucepan melt butter over low heat. Remove and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Stir in scalded milk, eggs, salt, yogurt, 2 cups flour, and 1 cup whole wheat flour; beat until well-blended. Stir in melted butter, fold in remaining flour and whole wheat flour; mix well but do not knead. Chill covered for 4 to 8 hours.

Cover, let rise in a warm place for 3 hours, or until doubled in size.
  4. Preheat oven to 400°F (205°C).
