How to Make Dough in Blendtec Blenders
Article by Chef Austin
Blendtec Blenders are good for more than just fruit smoothies. For instance, you can knead bread dough right in your blender. You can use the WildSide blender jar for large batches of dough or use the Twister Jar for smaller batches that has a revolutionary design that makes it easy to scrape dough from jar's sides while blending.
Blendtec's Wildside jar can easily mix a 2.5 pound loaf of bread dough
Chef Austin's Recommended Recipe
Time: 30 Minutes
1⁄4 cup Warm Water
1 tsp. Dry Active Yeast
1 tsp. Honey
1⁄8 tsp. Salt
1 1⁄2 tsp. Olive Oil
3⁄4 cup All-Purpose Flour
Add first 3 ingredients to Twister jar and place lid on jar. Hold lid with one hand, and with other hand pulse twice. Allow yeast to proof 5-10 minutes in the jar, until it becomes foamy.
Add the remaining ingredients in order listed and place Twister lid on jar. Hold Twister lid and with your other hand, press "Pulse" 6-8 times until all flour is incorporated and dough ball forms. Turn Twister lid counter-clockwise during blending.
Preheat oven to 450°F.
Preheat a baking stone or sheet pan.
Allow dough to rise in jar, with lid secure, until dough doubles in size.
Divide dough into six pieces. Roll into breadstick shapes on a floured or well-oiled surface.
Place breadsticks onto the preheated baking stone or sheet pan. Add herbs or cheese to breadsticks, if desired.
Bake in oven until golden brown, approximately 6-10 minutes. Allow to cool 3-5 minutes before serving.
