Bob's Red Mill

There's 2 packages of yeast, is that a mistake? In the Bob's Red Mill baking mixes, is there supposed to be one or two packages of yeast, and am I supposed to use both?

I don't usually buy the baking mixes because of the expense and I really don't want to flub this one up! I've been craving the stupid bread all week now!

Hi Gymnastjlf,

If the mix just makes one loaf, then I'd suggest you use both packages of yeast. I know according to the book "The Gluten Free Diet: A comprehensive REsource Guide" by Shelley Case (dietician) under her suggestions for Baking Tips: Textures: it says that most gluten free breads often require more leavening than wheat flours due to the gluten which is necessary for forming dough with elasticity and enable the product to rise.

I once, goofed on my first prepared mix of rice bread, and added 2 tablespoons of yeast (had the wrong measuring spoon; haha :rolleyes: ). Then the next time I made it for my homemade pizzas, I used the amount they said which was 2 teaspoons. Anyhow, the first bread turned out way better than the 2nd. I think the extra yeast made the difference. :) Goofs help sometimes.

Enjoy the raisin bread (raisins have fiber and more iron: 6.6 grams per cup ) if you sprinkle in some ground flaxseed you'll get more fiber, plus essential fatty acids, and protein. Might as well make it a "good for you" treat too. :D

I think the 2 is an OOPS. Every time I have purchased the product there has only been 1 packet.

I think it's a mistake. I've bought their regular plain mix many times before and there was always only one packet. I don't see why it would be different for the cinnamon one.

I only used one of the packets, and I was left with a brick of bread. It did make edible bread pudding today though! Edible... note I did not say great!
