  • Stir warm water with yeast and honey. Set aside to proof. Place butter into microwave safe bowl and cook on high until completely melted. 
  • Pour milk and 1 egg into butter and stir together to incorporate. Pour into stand mixer. Yeast mixture should be foamy. Pour into stand mixer bowl. Sprinkle salt and 2 cups of flour overtop and knead until flour has been incorporated. With mixer on low, add in remaining flour.
