  • 375 g (3 cups) plain flour
  • 1¾ teaspoon fast-action dried yeast
  • 1¼ teaspoon salt

  3. Select Variable 1.
  4. Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 10. Blend for 5 seconds. Turn machine off and remove lid plug.
  5. Select Variable 6.
  6. Use the On/Off switch to quickly pulse about 30 short times in 25 seconds while slowly adding oil and water through the lid plug opening. Remove lid and use a spatula to scrape the dough off the sides.
  7. Secure the lid and continue pulsing another 30 times until a ball forms.
