Prep time: 15 to 20 min.
Rising time: 1 hour
Baking time: 35 to 40 min.

Tips: If the eggs are at room temperature, they will not cool the batter and slow the rising. The milk can be heated to a warmer temperature if the eggs are chilled. The most important step is to add the dissolved yeast to a lukewarm mixture.
