Step 1:

In the bowl of a stand mixer or bowl, add the sugar and flour and give it a quick mix.

Step 2:

In a different bowl or liquid measuring cup, combine the warm milk, egg, melted butter, and yeast. Set your mixer on low with the hook attachment, then gradually pour into the flour mixture. Once the dough starts to combine, put your mixer on high and mix for 2 minutes. The dough should be sticky.
