Simple yeast dough
500g of wheat flour
1 sachet dry yeast (I used 40g of fresh yeast)
1 generous pinch of salt
150 ml milk, lukewarm
50g butter, melted
sugar and cinnamon
Preparing the dough:
This dough is super easily made. You can also use it for making donuts or other pastry.
Add the flour into a large mixing bowl. add the sugar, lukewarm milk, melted butter, salt, eggs and yeast. Using your kitchenaid knead the dough for about 5 minutes. If you don’t have a kitchenaid; no worries! Just mix the ingredients till you have a smooth dough that doesn’t stick to bowl.
Let the dough rise for 30 minutes. You can also prepare it one day ahead and keep it refridgerated until you are ready to bake.
Roll out the dough (about 1/2 inch thick) and spread the butter onto the dough; then sprinkle the sugar mix or any other filling over it.
Preheat your oven to 400°F.
Put paper liners into a muffin mold or butter and flour muffin mold.
Cut the dough in approx. 1.5 inch wide strips.
Layer strips on top of each other.
Cut the strips in about 2-2.5 inch long pieces.
Put one piece of layered douch in each muffin mold.
Let the dough rise for 10 minutes and then bake at 325°F for about 25-30 min.
