can you get your hands on bread flour?
while AP flour will work just fine, bread flour will produce something much more like what you buy
Not sure if I can get bread flour, I haven't noticed it in the places I usually shop but next time I'm in Manila I may hit one of the specialty shops there to look for that. In the meantime I only have all purpose flour and rice flour to work with. Wish I could get wheat flour, I love baking with it.
And if you would be willing to share I'd love to have your recipe!
In the meantime I'm trying the recipe I posted above. I have another dumb question....
I've run into this before when baking cinnamon buns from scratch (anything to do with yeast)....the recipe always says something like "allow it to rise until doubled". I swear I could leave it there for 3 days and it would never actually double in size. I mean if I put it in a bowl and it occupies the bottom half of the bowl, does that mean it's supposed to fill the bowl up by the time it's done rising? Or am I reading this too literally?
