    Measuring THE most important secret of making bread. Exact measurements. That’s the key to successfully baking bread. Exact measurements. With wet ingredients, use ONLY measuring cups with the cups/ ounces marked clearly on the side. After filling the measuring cup, place it on a flat surface and view it at eye level to make sure the amount of liquid is exact.

  • Page 8

    Temperatures too cool or too high can affect the way the bread rises and bakes. Last, it’s a good idea to start with all new, fresh ingredients (especially fresh flour and yeast). Now, let’s try a simple (but really good) recipe.

    This takes care of all of the liquid ingredients for the recipe. Next come the dry ingredients. Measure 4 cups of bread flour. Make sure not to “overpack” the flour into the cup.

    depending on the area of the country in which you live. We recommend using fresh bread flour. • Yeast. Fresh yeast is probably the most important ingredient in baking bread. If the yeast is not fresh, your bread may not rise. It is better to buy new yeast than to take a chance on yeast that has been stored for a long time.
