Who doesn’t love bread?! It’s a family favorite for us – whether it involves yeast or not!
Here are some of our top tips to keep in mind when making bread:
- HOW MUCH YEAST TO USE: 1 package of yeast = 2 ¼ teaspoons yeast measured out
- TESTING YEAST: To make sure yeast is still good, mix 2 ¼ tsp yeast with 1 tsp sugar and ½ cup warm water. Let sit for 8-10 minutes. If it bubbles and has a yeast-like smell, then it’s still good. If it doesn’t, the yeast is old and no longer working.
- TO FREEZE BREAD: Let it cool completely and then double wrap in plastic wrap and then place in a freezer safe Ziploc bag. When you want to reheat it you can place it in the oven and warm it until ready to go.
