Ingredients

  • 4 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon of active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 cups of lukewarm water

Now that you have all your ingredients, let's get started on the recipe.

Instructions

Step 1: Prepare the yeast mixture

The first step is to activate the yeast. In a small bowl, mix the active dry yeast, sugar and a 1/4 cup of lukewarm water. Stir the mixture until the yeast and sugar dissolve. Set the mixture aside for about 5 minutes until it becomes frothy.

Step 2: Mix the dough

In a large mixing bowl, add your flour, salt and yeast mixture. Gradually add the remaining water and knead the dough for about 10-15 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic. Alternatively, you can use a stand mixer with a dough hook attachment. Cover the dough with a damp towel or plastic wrap and let it rise in a warm place for about 45 minutes.

Step 3: Shape the dough

Knead the dough again briefly to deflate it. Divide the dough into small pieces and shape them into balls. Place the balls on parchment paper or greased muffin cups. Cover the dough balls with a towel or plastic wrap and let them rise again for about 15-20 minutes.

Step 4: Steam the dough

Fill a large pot with water and let it simmer. Place the dough balls in a steamer basket and steam for about 20-25 minutes. Make sure that you leave enough space between the dough balls to allow them to rise without sticking together. You can also use a bamboo steamer or a metal steamer for this step.

Step 5: Serve and enjoy

Your Dombolo is ready! You can serve it with different types of stews or soups. It also goes well with butter, jam or peanut butter.

Conclusion

Congratulations! You have just learned how to make Dombolo using yeast. Remember to be patient with the rising of the dough - this is what makes the bread soft and fluffy. Experiment with different types of dough shapes and sizes to create your own unique style. Enjoy your delicious Dombolo!
