I totally question this recipe.


First - iced water?
Yeast needs warm water - 105 degrees to activate, so why bother using ANY yeast? It won't do anything.


Second - 1/8 teaspoon yeast is not enough (even if you used the correct water temperature), not even close enough to consider.
You wouldn't use less than 1/2 teaspoon per cup of flour, and in this recipe he is using a cup and a half of flour, so I'd have to make that 3/4 teaspoon to make it work.


Of course, with iced water, the yeast is useless whether he used 1/8 teaspoon or 10 Tablespoons.


I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, but what am I missing?

My Response:

Steve...

Believe it or not, the yeast will activate, even with cold water.

The key is doing it the day before...

This recipe works...

Try it....
