- 4. Marijuana-Infused Bread
Requirements: 3 tablespoons of cannabis butter in two portions, 1 ½ cups of water, ¼ cup of non-fat dry milk, 4 Cups of Bread Flower or multipurpose Flour, 3 tablespoons of granulated sugar, 1 ½ tablespoons of salt, 2 tablespoons of finely crushed weed and 2 tablespoons of Active Dry Yeast.
Procedure: For 10 minutes, proof the yeast in warm water using a 1/8 tablespoon of the sugar combined with an equal portion of water. Yeast should release big bubbles at the edges. In a different bowl, mix the sugar, cannabis, flour and the dry milk using your hands in order to crush the flour and make the mixture fluffy and light. Make a well at the center of the dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients at the center. With your hands, mix all for about 15 minutes. Add extra flour if the mixture is too sticky and wet. On the contrary, add water to make it less firm. When you have gotten a smooth mixture, cover the bowl using a plastic wrap and keep it in a warm place. Your dough will rise to about twice its original size. Cut your dough into small pieces and make rolls. Spread cannabis butter over them and cook for about 30 minutes in 350 degrees heat until it changes to golden brown.
