WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 1/2 cup warm water

  • 2 teaspoons instant yeast

  • 6 -8 cups white flour,

  • 1 1/2 cups coconut milk,

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil

  • 2 tablespoons sugar

  • 1 teaspoon salt

DIRECTIONS:

**Mix together the warm water, yeast, 2 teaspoons of sugar, and 2 TABLESPOONS of flour in a small bowl and set aside for 10 minutes. (Unusual to put flour into proofing.).

**Warm milk, oil, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and salt in the microwave for about 20 seconds-stir together and set aside. Don’t let the mixture boil, you just want to heat it up a bit.

**Sift 5 cups of flour into a large bowl.

**Once the milk mixture has cooled enough that you can comfortably stick a finger in it, mix it into the yeast.

**Add all wet ingredients to the flour.

**Mix with a wooden spoon until a dough forms. If sticky, add flour until you have a dough that you can knead.

**Dust your counter with flour and knead the dough until smooth, about 5-8 minutes. If the dough becomes sticky as you knead just sprinkle with flour as required. You may have to add up to a cup of flour at this stage depending on the humidity of your kitchen.

**Put in greased bowl, cover with a damp cloth and let rise until double in size.

**Punch down and knead for two or three minutes.
