   5 1/2 c  All purpose flour
       2 pk Yeast

       1 ts Salt
       1 c  7-up

   In a large mixer bowl, combine 2 cups of flour, yeast, sugar and salt; mix
   well. In a saucepan (or microwave) heat 7-up, water, and butter until warm
   (120-130~); butter need not melt. Add to flour mixture. Add egg and yolks.
   Blend at low speed until moistened; beat 3 minutes at medium speed. By

   on floured surgace until smooth and elastic, 3-5 minutes. Place in a
   greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover with plastic wrap and foil.
