You can knead dough in the bowl or on the table (no flour!), it's a classic sweet bread dough, a bit stickier and softer. Be patient and don't be scared if it sticks to your hands or to the table. If you add extra flour, the sweet bread won't be that fluffly and tender.
If you have a food processor, attach the dough hook and use it, I actually recommend it, it's a lot easier and quicker.
