100 best yeast recipes

I love to bake with yeast, but I know so many who are afraid of it. That doesn’t mean you should be!

As long as you follow a few simple rules, recipes that use yeast can be easier than you think. Better yet, it’s always so much cheaper than buying at the store.

When I first starting making recipes that use yeast, my bread was often denser than I wanted it to be. I finally learned to use less flour, and it makes all the difference in the world.

You can learn more about yeast in the article I wrote after visiting the Fleishmann’s Yeast headquarters.

I found the best yeast recipes that sounded absolutely amazing – and tested a bunch of them, too.

This list includes everything from breakfast sweet rolls to traditional sandwich bread to snacks and beyond. There are even gluten free options, vegan options, and more.

So go ahead, try something new.

And then tell me your favorites. Me? I’m off to go remake my asiago cheese bagels. My kids are begging!
