A gross word, I think. But a delightful tool of the trade!
I’ve always been afraid to use yeast in baking because I thought it was too complicated and was sure I would mess it up.
Turns out I was wrong!
I decided to make some cinnamon rolls waaaaay back in April and they turned out smashingly. I have made them twice more since then – we are a little addicted :)
These were the rolls just before I put them in the oven
I’ve also made pizza dough for home-made pizzas, which would also make your mouth water if I ever remembered to take a picture of them.
Until then, just know that all you really need is a meat thermometer. Yeast is not as finicky as it seems.
