Discover how simple and easy it is to make your own quick-rise dough!
Master this quick-rise dough recipe and you'll be serving delicious breads for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
1 In the bowl of a stand mixer, dissolve 1 teaspoon of the sugar in the warm water. Sprinkle the yeast overtop and let stand until frothy, about 10 minutes.
2 Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, stir together the remaining sugar, milk, butter and salt over medium-low heat until the butter is melted; remove from the heat and let cool until lukewarm.
3 Add the milk mixture to the yeast mixture in the bowl of the stand mixer; add the eggs and stir until combined. With the stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, gradually beat in 1 1/2 cups of the flour; beat until smooth, about 2 minutes. Using a wooden spoon, gradually stir in enough of the remaining flour to make a soft, sticky dough that comes away from the sides of the bowl.
4 Change the attachment on the stand mixer to the dough hook and knead until smooth, about 6 minutes, adding more flour if the dough begins to stick to the sides of the bowl.
5 Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface; knead with your hands until the dough forms a smooth ball, about 1 minute.
6 Place the dough in a greased bowl, turning the ball to grease it all over.
7 Cover and let the dough rise in a warm draft-free place until soft, airy and almost doubled in size, about 1 hour.
Prep & cook time: 1 1/2 hours

Inside Supernatural TV star Jensen Ackles' prestigious single-family Malibu home.
This might just be one of Malibu’s most wanted listings. Situated in a gated property on a one-acre site, is television actor Jensen Ackles and wife Danneel’s 5,940-square-feet home in Point Dume. The single-family house, which was remodeled by the couple this year, features a gourmet kitchen designed with custom cabinetry, hand painted tiles and Calcatta marble. To top it off, the family home includes a pool, spa, outdoor kitchen/BBQ, guest suite above the garage, and rights to the Riviera Beach.
An ocean view from the balcony, attached multi-purpose room, separate walk-in closets and a large master bath, are just some of the perks of the grand master suite. The listed price for this impressive real estate is $6.995 million. Check out the listing here.
- 5 bedrooms
- 6 bathrooms
- An entertainer's dream backyard
- 3 grassy yard areas
- Guest home suite
- Grand living room
- Gourmet kitchen
- Outdoor kitchen
Surrounded by luscious trees, pillars and a stone stairway, the outdoor hall to this Malibu home creates a grand welcome into the home.
The couple's idea of a contemporary classic style, starts from the foyer and flows through the entire home.
The living room is lined with large windows, allowing natural light to come through. A design scheme of light colours and textures were added to further brighten up the room.
From the bold colour palette to rich fabrics, this home has plenty of 2014 design trends.
The family-friendly living room has built-in shelves around the fireplace, making for a great focal point.
A view from the traditional and contemporary-styled living room into the kitchen. The room is designed with open seating and patterened rugs for a cozy feel.
The counter-height table set makes for additional seating in this open-concept kitchen.
With custom kitchen cabinetry, hand painted tiles, marble countertops, and walnut plank flooring, the couple has pulled out all stops for their gourmet kitchen.
This master suite, with a peaked ceiling and exposed beam, definitely gives a luxurious feel with a view to the ocean, balcony and an attached spare room.
A custom designed master bathroom is a serene retreat thanks to a neutral colour palette, extended vanity and oversized walk-in shower.
The couple installed a sleek white freestanding tub, giving the bathroom a more modern look, unique from the rest of the house.
Along with a pool and greenery as far as the eye can see, the house has rights to access Riviera 3 Beach.
Placing the outdoor kitchen and bar-height table in the corner, creates more room for guests and entertaining.
Adding to this massive backyard design, are three grassy areas and an option for a tennis court.
