    We love this. Delicious bread. Good with black coffee. I added a pinch of cinnamon for extra aroma and flavor.

  2. Hi! I tried this but not sure why my dough didn’t rise as much. When i left it for 1hr it just grew a little. When i do the usual punchdown… no air even came out. 🙁 or is that how its supposed to be since the yeast in the recipe is only 1tsp instead of the usual or common 2 1/4tsp. I still baked it kesa sayang. 🙂

    1. Hi Shine,

      I usually just use 1 tsp of instant yeast for this recipe and it rises with no problems at all. Sometimes the dough won’t rise well if the yeast is stale or inactive. Perhaps the yeast has been languishing in the kitchen for too long or kitchen is too cold. To have a good rise, ambient temperature plays a big role. Hope this helps.

        1. Hi Tinz,
          If it look that the dough is dry you can add 1 tbsp of lukewarm water/milk as needed until desired consistency. As for the dough rising, if using instant yeast make sure that the water or milk added is lukewarm, if it’s too hot
          the dough might not activate. If you are using dry-active yeast make sure to activate in lukewarm water for 5 minutes or until bubbles form indicating that the yeast is active.

        2. Hi, mine didnt rise very well and i found the mixture quite dry. I will try adding warm water if it is too dry next time. Also your recipe says 1tsp baking powder but in your instructions there is no baking powder so I added it to the first step

          1. Hello Steffie,
            Thank you for trying the recipe. With the dough not rising well, there are many factors that can have an effect.
            If you leave in a cold place, let the the rise in a warm part of your home e.g. near heaters. Check the expiration date of the yeast. If the dough is a bit dry, yes, you can add some warm water or milk
            until the dough is moist and elastic. Hope this helps. Cheers!
