Making a dough mixture
Ingredients: 1.5 kg flour, 1 packet of baking powder, 500 g sugar, 1 kg butter (room temperature)
Step 1: Mix the flour with the baking powder. If possible, use a bowl – but it also works on a granite work surface.
Step 2: Form the flour and baking powder into a mound and gradually add all the remaining ingredients on top.
Step 3: Now knead everything into a smooth mixture. It's hard work, if only there is a small bowl to hand!
Step 4: You win some, you lose some – next time it will definitely work! It's not at all as easy as it looks.
