From time to time, members have requested dough recipes that can be practiced within a few hours. These recipes are sometimes referred to as “emergency”, “short-time” or “short-term” dough recipes. I will refer to such recipes collectively in this writing as “emergency” dough recipes. Typically, the emergency doughs are made and used in a period of up to about four hours and the doughs are usually fermented at room temperature. On occasion, a combination of room temperature fermentation and cold fermentation can be used. In most cases, emergency doughs use a lot more yeast than used to make normal doughs and a water temperature that is considerably higher than used to make normal doughs. However, there can be variations, as noted in many of the dough formulations referenced in this thread.
For the convenience and benefit of those members who are interested in emergency dough recipes, I have attempted to collect and categorize by style some of the more notable ones of such recipes that I have identified over time. I have not attempted to find and link every
emergency dough recipe ever posted on this forum although I am willing to revise this document as other worthy emergency dough recipes come, or are brought, to my attention. For those recipes that I could not specifically identify by style, I have simply labeled as “General”. In some cases, there are multiple versions of the recipes noted and they are often scattered throughout a thread and developed piecemeal over time. That means that people will have to read the threads to find the recipe or version that best meets their particular needs. I have not attempted to single out every version of a particular emergency dough recipe or to rewrite any such recipe or adapt it to a particular situation. My only goal was to create a compilation of some of the more notable emergency dough recipes. New York Style
