NOTE: The basic bread and dough recipes in this booklet were developed using
active dry yeast. You may use the chart below to substitute any quick-acting yeast
(quick rise, fast rise or Bread Maker yeast) for the active dry yeast or vice versa.
Conversion Chart for Quick Rise Yeast
3/4 tsp active dry yeast = 1/2 tsp quick rise yeast
1 tsp active dry yeast = 3/4 tsp quick rise yeast
1-1/2 tsp active dry yeast = 1 tsp quick rise yeast
2-1/4 tsp active dry yeast = 1-1/2 tsp quick rise yeast
1 TBL active dry yeast = 2 tsp quick rise yeast
Sugar is important for the color and flavor of breads. It also serves as food for the yeast
since it supports the fermentation process. Recipes in this book that call for sugar
require granulated sugar. Do not substitute powdered sugar. In addition, artificial
sweeteners cannot be used as a substitute for sugar as the yeast will not react properly
with them. Honey may be substituted for sugar in equal proportions; reduce the liquid
by the same amount.
Salt is necessary to balance the flavor of breads and cakes. Salt limits the growth of
yeast. Do not increase or decrease the amount of salt shown in the recipes. Dietetically
sodium-free (less than 5 mg sodium per serving) or low salt (less than 1/2 the sodium
of table salt) may be used in equal amounts. The bread will be more coarse.
All liquids should be warm 80ºF/27ºC for all recipes. Liquids, such as milk (1%, 2%,
whole and skim), water or a combination of powdered milk and water, can be used
when making bread. Milk will improve flavor, provide a velvety texture and soften the
crust, while water alone will produce a crispier crust. Vegetable or fruit juices and
potato water may be used for flavor variety.
Eggs add richness and a velvety texture to bread dough and cakes. When the recipe
calls for egg(s) at room temperature, large egg(s) should be used. Liquid egg substitutes
may be used as directed on the carton or 2 egg whites may be substituted for 1 whole
egg. They must also be room temperature.
