This third virtual cooking class has been filmed in three sections. I made the basic yeast bread dough in the first, shaped the dough into cinnamon rolls in the second, and showed off the finished product in the third. You can watch the first video and simply make bread dough that can be shaped into a loaf or used as the base for homemade pizza.
1 T - dried yeast
1 T - white sugar
2 C - warm water
2 C - Flour
This is the proof. Mix well and let sit for 5 min. or until the top is bubbly. Then add:
2 1/2 - 3 1/2 C flour (can use a combo of whole wheat, white, wheat germ, oats, flax seed,or sunflower seeds)
1/4 C - melted butter or oil
1/2 t - salt
Mix until dough won't accept any more flour
Turn out onto counter and knead
Place in bowl with a wet dish towel and let rise till double (about 1 hr.)
Punch down (deflate)
Shape dough into desired form and let rise again till double. Bake till golden brown.
