Homemade Breads
Fragrant, home-baked yeast
breads are more popular than ever
before. Thanks to modem tech
niques that make baking at home
practical for the busiest homemak
er, student or professional.
There are three methods of dis
solving yeast—the traditional dis
solving method, the popular non
dissolving variation, and even a
refrigerated process that works
Try experimenting with all three
methods to find one that works
best for you.
• Dissolving Many bakers
prefer this traditional method. The
yeast is dissolved in warm water
(110-115 degrees) before being
added to other recipe ingredients.
The water must not be too hot or
yeast cells will be destroyed.
• Non-dissolving Ideal for
beginners, the non-dissolving var
iation combines the yeast with
other dry ingredients. Recipe li
quids, are heated to a warmer temp
erature (120 to 130 degrees and
then added to the dry mixture.
• Refrigerated—This method is
perfect for those who like to do
their preparation in advance. The
dough is assembled, kneaded and
shaped prior to refrigeration. The
high sugar content allows it to rise
slowly in the refrigerator several
hours or overnight
Non-yeast breads that depend
upon baking powder to rise are a
tasty and quick alternative to yeast
Whatever variety of bread you
choose to make wiU fill your home
with a wonderful aroma.
