Yeast dough is indispensable for ring cakes, cake, stollen or yeast plait! Our recipe is prepared with spelt flour, which is considered a beauty cereal: hair, nails, skin and connective tissue benefit from its high silica content. Rapeseed oil instead of butter also works! The vegetable oil convinces with its high content of linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid which is essential for us.

With a few tips, you too can make a successful yeast dough! Always use only lukewarm liquids, because heat accelerates the growth of yeast. In order for the yeast to work properly in the dough, you can also let the dough rise in the oven. To do this, preheat the oven to 50°C, then switch it off and place the yeast dough inside, leaving the oven door ajar. This way the dough doubles its volume in about 20-30 minutes.
