Yeast Dough

Basically, yeast dough is my favourite one! There are many ways, shapes and many filling flavours that you can made it with. Yeast dough is soft, fluffy and very easy to prepare. All you need is a little bit time.

The dough should have enough time to raise, usually it takes about 1 hour, and also it should be kneaded. It is so important to knead it long enough to activate gluten. However, be aware not to over – knead your dough! Usually it takes about 10 minutes to knead it. You know it is ready when you press it with your finger and it doesn’t spring back.

How To Store

Baked yeast dough, usually starts drying after one day. It taste the best when still warm and fresh. However, you can store this cinnamon rolls in closed container in the fridge. You just need to heat them up in the microwave, every time you wanna serve them. If you make too much dough, you can simple freeze it or freeze the shaped rolls before baking. Before baking frozen dough, let it stand to come to room temperature.
