Versatility of Sweet Dough

Instructor: Ciril Hitz


A must have dough in any bakery setting. I have learned to work multiple products through a versatile sweet dough. I have not found many things that this dough can not do. I have baked, fried and abused the dough in so many ways and it has never disappointed me in its outcome (Within reason). We will investigate mixing, fermentation and retarding of the dough and turn it into various types of products that are sure to please both guest and patrons alike. Items covered in this class are Hazelnut snails, little Swiss dough mice, Russian braids as well as some sticky buns and cinnamon buns.

All registrations include a live zoom link to participate and interact in real time as well as formulas and process notes emailed ahead of the class.
