About This Class

Few things intimidate home cooks more than baking with yeast, but it's the single greatest foundation for endless sweet and savory possibilities in the kitchen.

The secret? You only need to know one dough.

In this inviting 25-minute class, beloved chef and recipe developer Julia Turshen shares how to make a no-fail yeast dough every time — a perfect base for sweet rolls, savory twisted breads, iced buns, and more. You'll learn:

  • How to combine ingredients (properly!)
  • Kneading techniques
  • The how and why of yeast-dough rising
  • Julia's signature recipe for raspberry jam buns

Adding this foundational recipe to your repertoire opens the door to getting creative in the kitchen, mastering an essential yeast dough, and delighting friends and family with delicious baked goods at home!

This girl is so adorable. She has a lovely voice and her camera presence is spot on. I have never baked anything that did not come out of a box. I really think that I can master this SKILL of making dough. I am watching this in bed i don't recommend doing that as now I am hungry for these beautiful looking jam rolls. Wonderful job. I would watch any and all things that she teaches. I also want to buy her cookbook. Thanks kindly for sharing. Really great!
GOOD and visual
I love this class. She is so relaxed and approachable. She explains the process with perfect detail as she goes and adds in information about baking that will serve well when making something else. I can easily follow along and make it with her in my own kitchen. Will be checking out her cookbook and following more of her classes.
