Put the ingredients to activate the yeast listed above in a small bowl, cover it and leave for 5 minutes. Bubbles should form.
Heat the milk in a jug in the microwave for about 1.5 minutes until very hot but not boiling. Leave it to cool for a few minutes.
Take a large bowl, and add the cooled milk, sugar and salt. Mix them together until dissolved.
Next add the two beaten eggs, the yeast and water etc from step one, the melted butter, and about a quarter of the flour.
Mix the ingredients together well, and slowly mix in the rest of the flour. The dough should start coming away from the sides of the bowl.
Place the dough on your floured worktop, and knead it. Add a little flour bit by bit, until the dough is no longer sticky.
Knead it until smooth and elastic.
Split the dough until two equal parts. I weighed mine to ensure they were the same size.
Place each one in an oiled bowl, cover with a tea towel and place in a warm place to rise for 1.5 hours. It should double in size.
