Cheese Pastry In Cake Mold Recipe
The biggest fear of those who are just starting to cook or who do not like to cook is to make yeast dough. It feels like that dough will never rise, and even if it does, it cannot be handled. Although it is not so, it is natural for a person not to show courage in a subject that they do not have much control over.
I think this recipe will be a good start for those who will make yeast dough for the first time. There is no long shaping phase like normal pastries. After making a good dough, you can place it randomly into the cake mold. But for those who say how to make that good dough, I would like to give a few tips about yeast dough.
- If you are going to try it for the first time, use instant yeast, not fresh yeast, it is much more practical to use,
- Instant yeast is an instant yeast that is sold in powder form, it is sold in small packages in addition to baking powder and vanilla in the markets, it does not need to be dissolved in water like fresh yeast or old powdered yeast, you can use it by adding it directly into the dough,
- Make sure your yeast is not expired,
- Make sure to knead your dough in a warm environment, keep it in a warm environment during the fermentation phase, the frozen dough will not rise,
- The water or milk you add to the dough must be lukewarm, close to the heat,
- No matter how much someone you trust (even if it's me) has a recipe, don't pour 5 cups of flour into the dough just because it says 5 cups of flour; little by little, checking the consistency of the dough, add as needed,
- The amount of flour you will use may vary depending on the size of your eggs, whether your milk is oily or not, or for many other reasons that you cannot foresee,
- Even a recipe that you have made 10 times and succeeded may not surprise you the 11th time, so learn to trust your instincts and eyesight instead of relying on recipes.
And finally, I have an advice about cooking, not just yeast dough;
- There is no rule that says you will always be successful in the kitchen. Even for no reason, the recipes you trust can mislead you. After all, the kitchen is not a laboratory, not every formula always gives the same result. Instead of getting angry and upset and walking away from the kitchen, accept your failures and look at the food in front of you.
