Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Bread machine yeast was introduced in 1993. It's a special strain of instant yeast, packaged in jars, to end confusion about what kind of yeast works best in bread machines. The granulation is finer, so it's dispersed more thoroughly during mixing and kneading.
  • tip 2
    Gift a family with fun! Package the unfrosted baked bread, a container of vanilla frosting and packages of decorations begging to be used.
