  1. In small bowl add water and milk at 102-110 degrees,  add 1 tsp sugar and yeast.  Gently mix together and let stand for 5 minutes.  In electric mixer with a hook attachment,  add the remaining ingredients, and mix until combined.  Slowly pour in yeast mixture until it is all incorporated.  Mix until all ingredients are combined and the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
