King Cake Question


I’ve tried making your king cake twice now and it just doesn’t work.  The dough never rises.  You say it’s easy to work with but I disagree.  Someone else had the same problem and you advised using a bench scraper to transfer the dough to the baking sheet.  I don’t think you understood their question.  It was the recipe not working, not an equipment failure.



I feel your pain and I know the solution.  Last year when I tried following my own recipe it came out poorly.  This year, it was a joy.  the difference?  the yeast.  This recipe requires instant yeast–not just active dry.  Exactly why, I don’t know–but I can vouch for the difference.  Sorry for the confusion, and happy Mardi Gras!
