I didn't like your recipe it was uncooked in the centre and was flavourless

Perhaps it's the control on the activation of yeast causing the problem. The dough with yeast first kneaded needs a warm place to sit so that the yeast gets activated. Another reason may be an overly activated yeast mixture blended to form the dough. Either way may lead to failure.

I tried the recipe but even after 30 mins on the streamer, the middle of the dough are uncooked. Any idea why? :( thanks.
