Since 1868, Fleischmann's Yeast has been helping people make breads with their commercially produced yeast. Arriving from Austria-Hungary, the Fleischmann brothers revolutionized bread baking in America with their patented compressed yeast cake. Today, the tradition continues with innovations like RapidRise yeast and Bread Machine yeast.
If you're a novice in the kitchen who needs a boost to get started, Breadworld.com has all the hints you'll need to ensure success with your bread baking. Click on Beginnerís Kitchen to learn about the essential tools and how to use them. For example, since it's crucial that water temperature is accurate, you'll need to invest in a cooking thermometer. Look for one with a stainless steel stem and a dial on top. Before greasing your loaf pan, browse through the baking directions to understand methods like kneading your dough until its satiny smooth and giving your crust a super shine with an egg wash.
Once you get a hang of the basics, try some of the conventional oven or bread machine recipes designed for both novice and advanced bakers. Whatever your level of experience, you'll be sure to find plenty of flavorful selections to match your baking skills. Classic Choices cover the range from Country French Bread to Honey Wheat Bread. For holidays or special occasions, prepare a Cranberry Pecan Wreath or a Lattice-Top Spinach Pie. All recipes include nutritional information and can be stored in your own online recipe box.
