Shortening, butter and oil shorten, or tenderize, the texture of yeast breads. French bread gets its
unique crust and texture from the lack of fat added. However, breads that call for fat stay fresh

Baking Powder
Double acting baking powder is a leavening agent used in quick breads and cakes. This type of
leavening agent does not require rising time before baking, as the chemical reaction works when

baking process.

available in various sizes. Gently spoon dry ingredients into the measuring cup and level off with
a knife. Do not scoop or tap measuring cup, as this will pack the ingredients. This extra amount
could affect the balance of the recipe. Do not sift flour in bread making.
When measuring small amounts of dry or liquid ingredients (i.e. yeast, sugar, salt, dry milk,
honey or molasses), a standard measuring spoon must be used. Measurements must be level, not
