Re: Yeast challange

-I heated it in the microwave for about 1/2 the time it would take to hot coffee (still too much time

- then used an oil/candy thermometer and added the water to the yeast (& sugar) when it reached 115 degrees (I didn't get it right when I used a meat thermometer - I was desperate & forgot I had the candy thermometer)

- let it set for 10 minutes -

-then follow the recipe

To get it to rise (my house is too cool) I read on-line (somewhere) that you can preheat your oven to 100 for a few minutes, turn it off and set the dough in you oven

(I wrapped the entire bowl with a large, light weight kitchen towel - perfect)

Re: Yeast challange

My yeast proofs best at 115 (the jar gives a range liquid as 105-115). If the liquid is 116/117 and I pour into a glass bowl with the yeast and sugar, the temp is lowered to perfect.


DH showed me a pic today of bread DSD make. It looked as if she'd made it in a cookie sheet. She took veggies, etc. and placed them on top/pressed into the dough to make a pic - it looked like art (made flowers)

She's so creative!
