Split the eggs in yolk and white. Beat the whites stiff, and save for later use.
Stiff egg whites. Do you dare to turn the bowl up side down over your head? If not, continue beating...
Dissolve the yeast in the milk. Combine the rest of the ingredients (exept the egg whites) with the milk.
Add the beaten egg whites.
Let the dough rise for about an hour.
Ready! Now for the fun part!
