I made this bread today. It was wonderful. My husband ate it in about three minutes flat. Thank you for showing this recipe. Will make this at least once a week from here on out!
I made this crazy dough two times and it’s just so perfect. This recipe is so easy and thank you very much for sharing. I dont have yogurt but I use home made buttermilk (i use your recipe to make it). I fell in love with this crazy dough recipe and I’ll always have this in my fridge. My husband like the Nutella bread that I make. Thanks so much.
I made the cheesy bread with the crazy dough and it came out great! I am now making another one today! This is wonderful! I am looking forward to trying the cinnamon rolls with it when I have more time! Blessings!
This unique dough starts with the basics: flour, water, yeast and sugar. But it gets a texture and flavor boost from a few eggs and rich creamy yogurt. And like many of my doughs you do not need to mix this dough on a machine, you simply mix it by hand and let it ferment.
With this seriously crazy dough base you can add sweet or savory toppings and stuffings. You can roll, twist and bake this into a variety of shapes, allowing you to successfully experiment with all kinds of different bread based baked goods. I’ve created an amazing series of 8 different recipes around this one dough that I will release over the next 8 weeks.
You will be blown away by how easy this is to make and how versatile it really is. My favorite thing to do is whip up this master recipe and keep it in the fridge all week long to be turned into whatever my friends and family are craving that day. No special machine needed, and messy kneading. Give this a try and you will see why this is called Crazy Dough.
Bread is such a comforting food and the main component of so many diets, it is hard to imagine life without it. Luckily, if you need to enjoy dairy-free foods or have chosen to eat vegan, you can still enjoy a slice of bread warm from the oven with this best crazy dough recipe. This bread includes many traditional bread ingredients, such as all-purpose flour, yeast and salt, but rather than milk, it utilises non-dairy milk, and instead of eggs, some oil is added for extra binding.
Another amazing thing about this simple bread recipe is that it is multipurpose in that you can use it for different types of bread, like focaccia, dinner rolls or pretzels.
The author of the Kitchen Nostalgia recipe blog wanted to create a dough similar to another crazy dough recipe which had multiple purposes, only this one she wanted to make accessible to vegans and dairy-free diets as well. If you would like the homemade bread served at your table to be enjoyed by all, too, this dough recipe will be the one for you.
2 1/2 cup (550 ml 550 g) non-dairy milk, lukewarm
2 tsp sugar
80 g fresh yeast or 4 tsp active dry yeast or 4 tsp instant yeast
6 2/3 cup all-purpose flour 1 kg
4 tsp baking powder
3 tsp salt
1/2 tsp lemon juice
4 Tbsp + 1 tsp oil
If you’re using instant yeast, mix it directly to flour. For other types of yeast, in a small bowl combine lukewarm milk with sugar and yeast. Let stand until yeast activates, about 10 minutes. The yeast will become foamy and start expanding.
Put the yeast mixture together with remaining ingredients in a bowl of your food processor or mixer. Mix well until you get soft dough, similar to pizza dough. If the dough seems too dry (depending on the kind of flour you’re using), add a little bit more of milk or water. If it is too soft, add just a little bit of flour.
You can start using Vegan Crazy Dough immediately. Shape it any way you like, wait a little bit until it starts expanding (about 15-20 minutes in the warm kitchen), then pop in hot oven.
