Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • Be sure you keep your water temperature right at 100 to 110 degrees. Any cooler may not activate the yeast and any hotter may kill the yeast. 
  • Check the date on your yeast. You don’t want to use expired yeast when making bread. 
  • Before slicing your bread, be sure to let it cool and use a serrated knife. 
  • You can omit the cheese from the top if you would like. 
Bread flour is different from all purpose flour. Bread flour has a higher amount of protein and gluten to create a nice chewy soft bread. If you can't find bread flour, you can use all purpose flour as a last resort, but it will change the texture of your bread.

Storage
