Yeast dough too dry: How to save the dough
If your yeast dough is too dry, it will not rise – it lacks liquid. But don’t worry, you don’t have to throw away your dough now. These simple tricks will save him:
- Depending on the recipe, add some water or milk to the batter. Important: The liquid should be lukewarm.
- Start with a few milliliters of liquid, because if the dough gets too sticky, it won’t work either. A teaspoon is usually the right amount.
Is your dough still too dry? Don’t despair, keep baking!
- If nothing helps, knead the yeast dough well again and then let it rise in a warm place.
- In the end, only sugar helps. Sprinkle a tablespoon of sugar on the dough, knead again and leave covered for about 15 minutes. The sugar will help the yeast bacteria to multiply and the dough should now rise.
