I have a question about the recipe "Honey Cashew Morning Buns" from Joanne Chang. How does the yeast work without some kind of sugar?

Yeast converts the starch in flour to sugar, to get its food source.

I almost never use sugar in bread doughs-totally unnecessary.

Got it - thanks! And it did, in fact, rise quite nicely; just took a bit longer than three hours.
