 Ingredients List

  • **** NO E *****
  • -Karen Adler FNGP13B.
  • 1 Fresh compressed yeast cake
  • 1 3/4 c Warm water
  • 3/4 c Sugar
  • 1 ts Baking powder
  • 6 1/2 c All purpose flour; unsifted


TO MAKE DOUGH: Dissolve 1/2 yeast cake with sugar in warm water.
Immediately add baking powder and then the flour. The dough will be
fairly firm and a bit on the dry side. Knead on board for 20 minutes (you
should not need to flour the board) until dough becomes elastic and
smooth. Place it in a big mixing bowl, cover with a damp cloth and
leave in a dry, warm place (away from drafts) until dough doubles in
bulk. (Every kitchen is different. Author's dough usually takes about 2
1/2 to 3 hours to double in her electric oven, which she slightly
preheats to a warm setting for 2-3 minutes then turn off.) Now punch
down dough and knead again for 5 more minutes. It is now ready to be
s tuffed with fillings. COMMENTS: This is just a basic yeast dough with
perhaps a bit more sugar added. For those of you who do not care to
make this from scratch, you may use frozen bread dough as a substitute.
