   add the dry ingredients. Mix well. Make a hole in the
   middle of the flour mixture and add the yeast and
   enough milk to make a soft elastic dough. Cover with
   a clean cloth and leave in a warm place for 12 hours
   to rise. Place in a greased, floured tin. Bake in a hot
   oven (425/ F. or Mark 7) for 20 minutes and then
