Foundations no.9 - Using Yeast

When you first saw my Butterkuchen post, did the yeast put you off?

I know several accomplished bakers who shy away from it and as it was also mentioned a few times in my survey, I thought I would write a post trying to demystify using yeast. I'm not an expert at bread making but I do like making enriched breads and, as you can see in my successive Hot Cross Bun posts, I've increased in confidence over the years.

There are several types of yeast you might come across: dried (often called active dry), instant, fresh (a.k.a. cake/compressed) and sourdough starters. For the sweet bread baking I do, I use instant or fresh.

Instant yeast is generally easy to find. You can get it in sachets (often 7g or around 2 teaspoons) or bigger packs. I prefer instant to active dried yeast as you can mix it straight into the ingredients (dried yeast needs activating, usually by mixing it with warm liquids and leaving it for a bit). Instant yeast is formed into lots of tiny rod shapes (as you can see in the photo above) to give a big surface area, which means the yeast starts working quickly once it comes into contact with liquid.

Sometimes the packets have other ingredients - emulsifiers are relatively common, as is the addition of ascorbic acid (a.k.a. vitamin C - some say it increases the rise and/or helps create consistent results, I imagine partly because the optimum pH for yeast fermentation is slightly acidic).

{The photo series below shows a batch of dough rising in my relatively cold kitchen a few days ago - the number in the corner refers to the number of minutes.}

In Switzerland you can buy fresh yeast in the chiller cabinet in supermarkets - even the small ones. It's harder to find in the UK. Bakeries will sometimes give or sell you a small amount but it can be a struggle to find somewhere that bakes on site (surprisingly, one of the best bets is the bakery in a big supermarket). You can also get it online from the Bertinet Kitchen Bakery (they also sell via amazon) - it's delivered in temperature-controlled packaging and I was really pleased with the batch I received last week. It's often sold in small blocks of 42g (you can see one on the right in the top photo). Generally I crumble it into the wet ingredients but it can also be added straight into the dough.

One of my favourite things about working with yeast is the way my hands smell after I've crumbled fresh yeast into the bowl.

To convert a recipe from instant yeast to fresh, triple the quantity (i.e. 7g instant = 21g fresh). Essentially, 10g fresh = 4g active dry = 3.3g instant.

Yeast is a single-celled fungus. There are many species of yeast - the one we use for brewing and baking is called Saccharomyces cerevisae.

Yeast metabolizes sugar in the dough to produce energy for itself. This anaerobic reaction creates carbon dioxide and alcohol:

The carbon dioxide gas is trapped by the dough and inflates it. When you put the dough in the oven the alcohol evaporates - becomes a gas - and therefore also expands, adding to the early rise called oven spring.

This occurs even in a dough where sugar is not added as an ingredient because enzymes in the dough (such as amylase, which we also have in our digestive system) work on the starch, breaking it down into glucose.

Generally, the idea is to use as little yeast as possible to get the rise - a slow rise gives better flavour, partly because of other flavour molecules that develop during fermentation. This is why many recipes call for the first rise to occur overnight in the fridge or use a pre-ferment. If the recipe doesn't tell you to rise the dough overnight and you decide to, you can reduce the amount of yeast (I'd go for half or a third).

Yeast will work fastest at around 38C/100F, but this won't necessarily give you the best result. If you want a quick rise then a temperature of around 26C/80F (a warm place/airing cupboard, perhaps) is convenient - otherwise go for room temperature (usually around 21C/70F) or the fridge.

I've also heard that you can freeze fresh yeast in small pieces to improve the length of time you can keep it. I froze some a few days ago but I haven't tried using it yet so I can't verify it personally. We've always kept fresh yeast in the fridge for 2-3 weeks and dried yeast in the cupboard.

As you can see in the photos, dough can take a bit of time to get going - be patient. It may take longer than the recipe states. The more enriched the dough, the slower the rise is likely to be. Spices (especially cinnamon) can also slow the fermentation - which is why cinnamon rolls usually have the spices in the buttery filling.

So, overall, the three things most likely to cause problems are:

Yeast is a living organism and so, at temperature extremes, it will die (like you or I). The main time this is a danger with enriched breads is if you're scalding milk, melting butter or heating something similar just before you add it to the dough - you need to make sure it cools down (transferring it to a metal bowl and putting it in the fridge will speed it up). I go for body temperature.

Too much salt or salt that gets directly into contact with the yeast will also cause problems. The key with most recipes is to stir the salt into the dry ingredients before you add the yeast so that the salt is distributed through the flour (so you don't spoon the yeast directly on top of the salt you've just tipped into the bowl). You can also add them to different sides of the bowl.

If your yeast is out of date, hasn't been used in time or hasn't been stored correctly, it probably won't work. Check the packet date and the amount of time you can use it after opening (for instance, a packet of instant I have states that the sachet must be used within 48 hours of opening). Fresh yeast should be a pale creamy colour, ever-so-slightly damp and smell nice.


This is the ninth post in my Foundations series, which explains techniques like making meringue (part one, part two) and brown butter.

Four recipes that use yeast:
Cinnamon Cardamon Kringel Bread
Blueberry Braided Bread


  1. My first experiment with yeast, some ten years ago, was for hot cross buns. I foolishly thought it would work like baking powder and they'd be ready in 30mns, like scones. Needless to say, that didn't work out. Now I'm much better at it and make all sorts of things (Hungary is a very fresh yeast-friendly country) but I've never thought too much about the science behind it all so that made for a very interesting read, thank you! Two things I love about working with yeast are the smooth feel of a good dough, and the smell, especially for sweet buttery doughs.

  2. I love yeasted doughs. Nothing beats a loaf of homemade bread (especially when there is Nutella involved).

  3. Brilliant post lovely x

  4. This is a great post, thanks =) I love working with fresh yeast, and I generally think bread tastes better made with it. I usually just go to the bakery in a large supermarket and ask for it. I have tried a selection of supermarkets in different parts of the UK and in my experience in Tesco it is free, in Sainsbury's they charge 20p per 50g (I think) and in Asda I usually get told they can't sell it to me because they "don't sell things which are alive".

  5. I haven't seen fresh yeast since I was a kid! Great tutorial!

  6. Great post, yeast is fascinating, the science of yeast is so interesting.

  7. I'm so sorry to hear that you've have problems with the recipe - I take the reliability of my recipes very seriously. Can you tell me a bit more about what went wrong? Did you make the whole cake three times or just the topping? I'm going to make the cake again this evening so I will look out again for any problems with it - as I mentioned in the post I have tested the recipe three times and had results consistent with the photos each time (the photos represent the third test).

    I mentioned in the recipe that the caramel has a tendency to split if it is not stirred or whisked once the butter has been added - this happened in my first test but once it had been stirred back together and scraped into the tin there were no problems with texture or flavour etc. The caramel should be off the heat when you stir in the butter and salt (heat until...) and should be cooled off the heat (as in the photos) until scraped into the tin. I will adjust the recipe wording to make sure this is 100% clear.

    If you would rather, you could try the topping with 30g of cold double cream or creme fraiche - the main reason for the addition of the cold butter is to stop the caramel cooking and enrich the topping (though personally, for this recipe, I like the butter). Cream should make a more stable mixture.

    Once again, I am sorry to hear that you were disappointed.

  8. Thanks for your clarifications, Cecily - I'm touched that you helped. I should probably note that I don't cook the caramel any further once the butter has been added - I apologise for any confusion.

  9. Just to say quickly that I made the cake again this evening and the topping and cake in general came out as they did before. I hope to hear more about your experiences soon.

  10. Thank you thank you thank you!! I love your foundations series and this post on yeast is definitely one of my favourites :)

  11. Disappointed. Looked so lovely in the blog (as it always does) but caramel turned into hard toffee (kids delighted, but Sunday lunch pud now have to be re-thought). Followed the instructions - but cook on an induction hob so perhaps the heat was too intense. I didn't stir the sugar, but swirled as instructed, took it off the heat & whisked in the butter as directed. Saucepan may never be the same. This is the 3rd thing I've cooked from your site, and they have all been disappointing. Probably a reflection on my cooking skills - but the coconut & apricot loaf cake was just a glorified madeira cake, the Butterkuchen didn't really taste of very much. I love the blog - it's so beautifully crafted and written, so I feel annoyed. Perhaps I'll stick to window shopping from now on.

  12. I'm really upset to hear that you've had problems with the recipe and feel disappointed.

    If the pan has bits of caramel stuck to it then fill it with warm or hot water or soak it - the caramel will all dissolve, leaving the pan clean.

    I think what happened is that the caramel cooled too much before going into the tin. It's meant to set up to a hard caramel in the tin before baking - this is why I use butter instead of cream. It means that the caramel doesn't escape during baking but merges with the cake and pears and you get the occasional crispy corner after baking. I'll amend the recipe to make this clearer.

    As for the others, I'm sorry to hear you were disappointed. I don't really know what to say - my testers and I loved the flavour of both of them. I'm sorry that you didn't feel the same way - I try very hard to make things as good as they can be.

    Hi Emma,

    I've started my own food blog a few months ago and because I'm new to the blogging community, I've started a little 'Making Friends' campaign to introduce myself to the neighborhood and to meet the bloggers that have inspired me to start my own blog! Since I can't ring your doorbell and bring you a real cake, I came up with a personal recipe for you! You can find it on my blog thetoughcookie (dot) com. This recipe was a huge inspiration, so I hope you'll pop by and take a look! I'm afraid to post an url because I don't want you to think I'm spamming, but I'm sure you can find it. It's the 25th of November post and it has everything to do with poires au chocolat!

    This is crazy useful! Thank you for helping to demystify yeast.

  15. A kingdom for a Cake26 November 2013 at 18:05

    I enjoy reading your posts very much and this one is not an exception. Although we mainly learn through experience, I usually like to know about the science behind it. Thank you.
    To all of you looking for fresh yeast in the UK - look for local Polish/Russian shops, they always stock them!!

  16. Woo-hoo! It's that time of year!
    Thanks for the recipe tips. I'm going to make mincemeat tonight.

  21. An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my wife back to me.. My name is james i live in usa,and I`m happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she did not love me anymore So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.{ideshispelltemple@outlook .com}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {5}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website {},if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to "bringing your ex back. So thanks to the ideshispelltemple for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again.{ideshispelltemple@outlook.c om}

  25. In Sweden, as in Denmark, you can find fresh yeast in every supermarket. In the UK, ocado has a Swedish section where they sell Swedish yeast - jäst - 4 x 50g. I can highly recommend it! Also, thank you Emma for the most inspiring baking blog out there!

  26. Thanks for your post!
    I've tried several time to bake with yeast (instant or active dry, or homemade sourdough starters). Every time the dough rises to a nice volume when I let it rest the first time, but when I punch it down and put it in the oven (even if I let it rest another few hours before baking it) it doesn't rise and I get very dense bread or buns, that taste good but are so hard and heavy! Any idea of what I might be doing wrong? Thank you!!

  27. Antonia @ Health Inspirations5 December 2013 at 16:10

    I don't mind working with yeast, but am finding it relatively difficult to find fresh yeast in the UK (as you pointed out). In Austria it's very common to have it in pretty much every supermarket!

  28. i am sharing my testimony to everyone that has tried everything possible and had lost hope on how they can get their ex back, i want you all to know that their is one man called Dr. Kuma that work for me and after 2days of his spell. my ex came back to me without any delay, i am really happy now that we are together again and we are living happily with so much love and respect for each other, so i will advise everyone to ask for this same man's help so that you can be happy again and make your dreams and wishes you have with your ex come true. via he can help you without any delay.

  29. poiresauchocolat6 December 2013 at 10:22

    Hot cross buns were my training ground too - my first year I thought I could get away with one rise, but they were very rock-like! I'm glad you enjoyed reading about it - it's nice to think about the background of things.

  30. poiresauchocolat6 December 2013 at 10:22

    Oh nutella! I love the smell of bread baking.

  31. poiresauchocolat6 December 2013 at 10:22

    Thanks Urvashi!

  32. poiresauchocolat6 December 2013 at 10:24

    I think so too, though supposedly if you try them side by side you can't tell. Thanks for the information about the fresh yeast - I've only got it in Tesco I think. I love the idea that Asda won't sell it because it's alive!

  33. poiresauchocolat6 December 2013 at 10:26

    May I ask where in the world you live? I find it really interesting that different countries use yeast in different ways.

  34. poiresauchocolat6 December 2013 at 10:27

    Heh! True, though sometimes you can get lovely flavour with a long rise in the fridge or on chilly days :)

  35. poiresauchocolat6 December 2013 at 10:28

    Thanks Suzanne, I'm so pleased you liked it - I think yeast is fascinating too.

  36. poiresauchocolat6 December 2013 at 10:29

    Aw, thank you - I'm so glad you like the series and this post :)

  37. poiresauchocolat6 December 2013 at 10:30

    It's funny, isn't it! Different countries seem to have such different cultures around yeast.

  38. poiresauchocolat6 December 2013 at 10:30

    Thank you! I'm so pleased you think it's useful.

  39. poiresauchocolat6 December 2013 at 10:33

    I agree that you mainly learn by experience - nothing can replace it. I still think that knowing more about something before you try can help make your first attempts more successful. Thanks for the tip about the Polish/Russian shops, good to know.

  40. poiresauchocolat6 December 2013 at 10:36

    I've heard that it's everywhere in Sweden too - it's interesting how things are different. I have noticed the Ocado yeast though last time I tried it was out of stock. And thank you, I'm so pleased you like it!

  41. poiresauchocolat6 December 2013 at 10:43

    I'm not sure, that seems odd if you're giving it another rise - is it with the same recipe? I tend to be quite gentle at the knocking back stage now - just a few light folds then get on with shaping. Maybe that would help?

  42. poiresauchocolat6 December 2013 at 10:44

    It's annoying, isn't it - I think the easiest way is probably online here, though you do have to buy it in bulk. It's the same in Switzerland - so easy to get.

  43. I've tried different recipes, temperatures... I'll try being more gentle, and maybe let it rise even longer... thanks for your help!

  54. THE GREAT DR JOHNBULL WHO BROUGHT MY HUSBAND BACK TO ME IN JUST ONE DAY. My name is Sarah am from uk, I got married 1 year ago. My husband and I have been living a very happy and lovely life. So as time went on, I began to notice this strange attitude that he was possessing. He was now going out with other girls, to the extent that he was no longer picking up my calls, and he was not even sleeping in the house anymore. I became confused and didn't know what to do anymore. So i became worried and stranded, that brought so many thoughts into my mind, because I have never experienced a thing like this in my life. So I decided to visit a spell caster, to see if he can help me out. So immediately I went to the internet, where I saw an amazing testimony of a spell caster who brought someone's ex lover back, "DR JOHNBULL" so I contacted him immediately and I explained to him all my problems and he told me that it will be very easy for him to solve, compare to the ones that he has done before. And he also gave me some proof to be really sure of his work, and he assured me that my husband will come back to me as soon as he is through with the spell casting. And also he told me to put all my trust in him, and I really obeyed him. So it was 8:00 am on the next morning, when I was about going to work, when i received my husband call, and he told me that he was coming back home, and he was apologizing to me telling me that he is very sorry for the pain that he has cost me. And after some hours later, he really came back home, and that was how we continued our marriage with lot of love and happiness, and our love was now stronger than how it were before. DR JOHNBULL also told me that once my heart desire has been granted unto me that i should go and testify of his work right here on the internet. Right now I am the happiest woman on earth today as I am writing this testimony, and I want to really thank "DR JOHNBULL" for bringing back my husband, and for bringing joy and love to my family. So my greatest advice for you out there who your husband or your wife is acting strange, or you have any problem with your relationship or anything that has to do with spell casting,He is capable of solving any problems.All you need do is for you to contact this man anytime, and i assure you that he will be of help to you,I am 100% sure that he will solve it out,if you need his help contact him now with this email: or +23408101864086 +447045738426
