Question of the week

This weeks question comes from Elizabeth, Essex

Elizabeth asks:

Hi Paul, I have tried to make Cinnamon Buns twice now and each time they come out dense, not edible! Have I not kneaded the dough enough!? Your advice would be appreciated as I am desperate to get these right! Regards Elizabeth 


Paul says:

Hi Elizabeth, my advice would be to knead the dough for longer until it’s smooth and elastic. To test remove a small amount of dough and pull it apart. If it snaps straight away then you need to knead for longer. You are looking for a dough to stretch and not snap. I hope you give it another go as they are really delicious. Happy Baking!
