Now take your apron and head to the kitchen fast. Just follow our instructions carefully. Pay attention to every single detail to get the perfect result. Let’s start baking now!
Step 1: Prepare The Dough
First, you have to take the mixing bowl. In the bowl add water, dry yeast, and sugar. Stir the mixture and let it sit for up to 5 minutes. You will notice it foaming as time passes.
Now, add 3 tablespoons of canola oil and mix. Gradually add all-purpose flour and sea salt to the bowl. Keep it on low speed for 3 to 5 minutes. Mix these ingredients until fully combined.
If you want to do the kneading by hand, keep kneading for 8 to 10 minutes. It’ll take a bit longer, but the results will be the same.
After kneading, put the dough in a large bowl. Coat your bowl evenly with 1 tablespoon canola oil. Cover it with a towel or plastic wrap. Leave it for about 30 minutes. It’ll be double in size.
Step 2: Shape The Dough into Breadsticks
After the dough has risen, uncover the fluffy dough. Smack and punch the dough to get the air out. Place the dough on a clean surface. Take a bread knife to cut the dough into 12 even pieces. Roll the pieces into shapes like breadsticks.
Now, take a large baking sheet. Spray the sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Place the breadstick-shaped dough pieces on the baking sheet. Cover the baking sheet with a lid or plastic wrap loosely. Let the breadsticks rise for one hour.
Step 3: Bake The Breadsticks
Finally, the most exciting part of baking the breadsticks has arrived. First, carefully preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
Remove the top cover from the baking sheet. Place the sheet in the preheated oven. Bake them for 10 minutes.
Step 4: Garnish The Breadsticks
The wait to taste these beauties is almost over. Time to make the breadsticks a little fancy. Melt some butter and brush the breadsticks. One coat is enough. If you love buttery breadsticks, go for the second coat.
Sprinkle grated cheese on top of the breadsticks while they’re hot. To add more flavor, use basil, oregano, garlic for the topping. You can also garnish them with cinnamon and sugar.
Now it’s done, and your kitchen is filled with a delicious smell. Time to serve and enjoy!
