Three Basic Dough Recipes Create A Variety of Hearty Delicacies

November 21, 2022 – As the temperatures drop and the leaves turn to gold, taste buds are seeking hearty comfort food that isn’t necessarily laden with pumpkin spice. Baker Nora Breyer offers home cooks the opportunity to bring a delicious slice of Austrian culture into their kitchens with her three classic dough recipes, available via her blog, Combine Good Flavors.

Great baking begins with great dough and Breyer delivers with three basic dough recipes that anyone can create successfully. There is sponge dough for cakes; a shortcrust pastry recipe for sweet and savory pies, tarts, and quiches; and strudel dough to make the quintessential Austrian delicacy. Armed with these three classics, any home baker will be able to craft a large variety of tasty treats, perfect for any time of the year.

“Baking is the ideal way for me to unwind,” says Nora Breyer. “It helps to relax me as I create something delicious for friends and family. As a native Austrian and Viennese who grew up with traditional Austrian cuisine and later with Viennese coffeehouse culture, it gives me great pleasure to share this cultural treasure with the world. I hope that many can enjoy these delicacies at home through my recipes.”

She continues, “Many of the oldest recipes I know were inherited from my grandmother’s younger days and were passed down to me by her. I am very grateful that I am able to share her delicious legacy with cooks from around the world.”

Aspiring bakers ‘knead’ these three basic dough recipes in their repertoire to craft hearty and delicious morsels of love while experiencing the tasty delights of Austrian cuisine. The recipes are free and can be found at
