  • Combine the 1/2 cup butter, 1/4 cup sugar, salt, 2 teaspoons of vanilla, milk, and 3 eggs in a bowl with 1 cup of flour and mix well.
  • Add the yeast mixture and beat for 1 minute.
  • Gradually add the remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, adding small amounts of flour as necessary to prevent sticking.
  • Shape the dough into a round, and place it in a greased bowl, turning to coat.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and let the dough rise at room temperature until doubled in size, about 1 1/2 hours. Even if it takes longer it is ok
