Saving over-risen dough with sugar
I tend to forget about my bread if I don't set the timer. Yesterday I mixed my pre-ferment with the additional flour, olive oil, and water; it was supposed to sit for 45 minutes to an hour before I added the salt and extra yeast. I didn't set the timer and remembered the dough about three hours later! It had somewhat more than doubled.
I added the salt and extra yeast, then, worrying that my little yeasties would run out of food, added a fistful of raw sugar. I kneaded the dough in my Kitchenaid for just a couple of minutes, let it rise once for an hour, shaped my boules, let them rise, and baked them.
Bread turned out fine. It was not sweet at all. I think that I did the right thing in adding the extra yeast food. But I'm not sure. What do y'all think?
