Sprinkle yeast and sugar into warm water, stir to dissolve and let stand for a few minutes. Break eggs into yeast and sugar. Then add flour and salt and stir until mixture is smooth. Cover and let stand in warm place until bubbly and doubled in size. Beat again and let double (the entire rising process will take about 3 hours). But dough can be kept longer.
