Hi Zainab, I'm new to bread baking, and I want to know how do you defined by the raised dough - is it raised slightly or fully raised - until the top of the bowl? As what can I see in your picture the dough is just raised slightly - about 1 1/2 times the original size. I've baked one kind of bread, called focaccia, but it risen too little. Go to my blog - http://myfoodandbakings.blogspot.com/ and look under the 'Focaccia' entry. You have a Nice blog:)

Hi Fariz,
Thank you for the comment,the sponge is raised slightly not fully raised but it's a great way to bake anything in a hurry & the results is very successful and similar to fully raised dough,& you can use the 10 minutes dough to bake "Focaccia" .
& if you want I have a successful recipe for Focaccia I can send it to you.

Can you please tell me what the difference is between the dough you use for the cream cheese fatayer and your "10 minute all purpose dough."

I know there's different ingredient amounts, and warm milk is used in the first recipe. Is the 10 minute dough sweeter, given it has 4 times the amount of sugar as the fatayer dough? Can either be used interchangeably?

Thanks for any clarification!

Just found your site - everything looks wonderful, and I love the videos that go along with the recipes to show "how to" - they're great! Can't wait to try my first recipe, as I'm sure it won't be the last!!

Eldemila,
"10 minute all purpose dough" it's can be use for anything (flat bread,Roll,bread loaf & fatayer) & it's very spongy & not that sweet but if you want to reduce the amount of sugar you can.
" the dough I used for cream cheese fatayer" it's just for fatayer & it's more crispy.
& it's up to you to use what you want.
Thanks for the nice comment.

E89 said...

hi absolutely wonderfulsite.
I just discovered it and I am so glad I did.
I have a question.. what kind of yeast you has used in this dough? is it dry active yeast, because I wondered how it would rise in 10 min ..oh well I am not a good cook anyway.
thanks

veena said...

I'm glad I came across this post and your blog, its awsome!
If I am making bread loaf or rolls, do I need to let this dough rise, if so, for how long, how many times? Really appreciate if you could share,

Keep cooking,
Thanks,
Veena

Arabic Bites said...

bunda,
yes.

Shveta,
thanks.

E89,
I always use instant yeast.


veena,
yes. you need to let it rise until double in size ,just like when use bread recipes .
40-50 minutes in warm place for bread.
25-30 minutes for rolls.

veena said...

Great, I baked some rolls, stuffed bun etc yesterday with this recipe, I saw your reply only today though. I let it rise for maybe 20 minutes...it came out fine, came out great, first time baking bread :) Thanks for the recipe!

Thank you! I needed a quick recipe for dinner tonight. the dough looks lovely.

HI, I tried to make the dough, but it did not come out to be soft. It was very hard. I took all the ingredients in half. Also, Is it ok to knead the dough with hand, because I don't have the machine for it. I hope you can reply to my message.

Arabic Bites said...

@Anonymous: it's depends on the type of flour you used .
next time try wetting your hands with water and knead until you get a smooth and soft dough.

Hi Zainab,
I love your website and want to tell you that I tried this dough recipe and I couldnt believe that in 10min I was done! It was so easy specially since I have a kitchen aid so you can imagine! so quick! I did small fatayer for my son's school picnic and I cant wait to do pizza with it. Those recipes to let it rise for 1 hour dont exist anymore, they used to drive me crazy. Now tell me, do you think this is a good recipe to do cinnamon roll?

Arabic Bites said...

@Susy,
Hi,
Thank you so much :)
Glad that you love this recipe,yes you can use it for cinnamon roll or instead of any dough you like.
