Bread Dough

  1. In a mug or small pot, stir together the warm milk, sugar and yeast. Leave it for 15 mins until it bubbles, that means the yeast is activated.

  3. In another bowl, mix the yogurt and egg.
  4. When the yeast is activated, add it with the yogurt and egg mixture to the dry ingredients. Combine everything together (I used my hand) until it forms a loose sticky dough.
  5. Gently knead the dough to form a rough ball.
  6. Cover it tightly with cling wrap and a towel and leave to proof for 2 hours.
  7. Once the dough has risen it should be about double in size.

  3. Spread the filling evenly but not on the edges.
  4. Roll into a log and cut to 8-9 pieces.
  5. Put in a pan, cover and let rest for an hour.
  6. Bake it in preheated oven (190-200ºC) for 35-40 mins until well browned.
