Test Kitchen Tips
  • Salt plays many roles in yeast bread. It slows the yeast’s growth, allowing the dough to develop more complex flavors and a stronger structure. It also contributes to the finished bread’s flavor and shelf life.
  • Some packaged breads have more than 20 ingredients! This loaf includes just six easy-to-pronounce ones.
