What is "raised dough?"

Ingrid Ingrid | Oct 12, 2006 08:41 PM

I came across a recipe on this board that calls for 2.5 cups of "raised dough." (The recipe was for chinese steamed meat buns.) I did a google search and found various recipes, with wildly different ingredients and proportions. I'm a fairly competent baker and must confess that I have no idea what this is. Any tips? The recipe is below:

1 1/4 cups of cake flour
1.5 t baking powder
3/4 cup of sugar
1.5 t baking soda dissolved in 1 T water
1.5 t white distilled vinegar
1 Egg white
2 1/2 cups raised dough (premade starter dough or regular yeast dough)
1 T water
