Yeast dough – two versions

Yeast dough is one of my favorite doughs. Why? If you want a savoury dish you can combine it with yeast dough. If you want a sweet pastry you can also combine it with yeast dough. That’s why I have to versions of yeast dough for you!

Theres no big difference between these two versions of yeast dough. In the sweet dough I just add sugar.

I’d like to make my dough with milk!

Milk gives the dough a little sweetness. It also makes the dough softer. At least that’s how I feel.

Ingredients

For the normal yeast dough

  • 500g flour
  • 1 fresh yeast cube
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 250ml milk or water

For the sweet yeast dough

  • 500g flour
  • 1 fresh yeast cube
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 250ml milk or water
  • 2 tbsp sugar

How to make the dough

  1. Put the flour, salt and sugar in a bowl.
  2. Add the fresh yeast cube crushed into a glass. Now fill the glass with enough lukewarm water. Stir until the yeast has dissolved in the water.
  3. Now add the dissolved yeast to the flour-salt-sugar-mix.
  4. Now add some milk and knead the dough.
  5. Repeat the process until the dough is smooth and still slightly sticky. Attention!: The dough may stick to your fingers, but when it comes off, there should be no residue left on your finger!
  6. Cover the bowl with a lid or tea towel and place it in a warm (sunny) place.
