Soft - like currency perhaps? (6)


I believe the answer is:


I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'soft' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'currency perhaps?' is the wordplay.
I cannot really understand how this works, but
'perhaps?' could be 'y' (I've seen this in other clues) and 'y' is located in the answer.
The remaining letters 'dough' is a valid word which might be clued in a way I don't understand.
This may be the basis of the clue (or it may be nonsense).

'like' is the link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Another definition for doughy that I've seen is " Soft".)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail.
