    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 24
    4 ½ to 5 c. Hy-Vee all-purpose flour, divided
    ¼ c. Hy-Vee granulated sugar
    2 (2-1/4 tsp. each) envelopes instant or rapid rise yeast
    1 tsp. Hy-Vee salt
    ¾ c. warm water, 100 to 120 degrees
    ¾ c. Hy-Vee 2% reduced-fat milk
    ¼ c. Hy-Vee unsalted butter, melted
    Hy-Vee canola oil, for greasing

    Things To Grab

    • Stand mixer fitted with a dough hook
    • Desired pan
    • Plastic wrap
    • Hy-Vee nonstick cooking spray


    1. Combine 1 cup flour, undissolved yeast, sugar, and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook attachment. Slowly beat in warm milk, water, and butter. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed, scraping bowl as needed. Slowly add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.

    2. Knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover and let rest 10 minutes.

    3. Shape dough as desired, place in a greased pan. Cover with plastic wrap sprayed with nonstick cooking spray and lightly floured; let rise in a warm draft-free place for 30 minutes or until doubled in size.

      Hyvee Culinary Expert Tip
      To freeze dough: Shape dough as desired. Instead of letting rise, cover tightly with plastic wrap and aluminum foil and freeze. To thaw, place in the refrigerator overnight. Remove from fridge and allow to rise for 2 hours. Once dough has doubled in size, bake according to recipe instructions.
