    If you are making it the same day that you want to eat I, can you skip soaking overnight?

    How long should it soak for? Not sure if I could prepare in evening or if I should wait right before bed? Is 14 hrs too long?

      Annie, You can prepare first thing in the morning and allow to soak for about 30 minutes before baking. That will work too!
