Preheat oven to 375°.
In a large mixing bowl combine the warm milk, with the dry yeast, sugar and a small scoop of the flour while mixing with a wire whisk until both the sugar and the yeast has dissolved.
Once the surface of the milk mixture begins to froth up or foam it’s time to add the remaining cake ingredients.
After the dough comes together as a large ball knead the dough on a clean but floured surface for 15 minutes or until smooth and elastic.
Place the dough back into the bowl, cover with plastic wrap move to a draft free place in the kitchen to “proof” or rise for 1 1/2 hours or until the dough has doubled in volume.
