Baking with dry yeast

I paused baking with my broodbakmachine for a while because I only had one dry yeast portion left. I already bought some loose weigth yeast, but I had no way to measure out 5.5 grams as the recipe prescribes for one bread. Yesterday I found a spoon with a size that corresponded exactly to the contents of the prepacked yeast, so now I can use this spoon to measure out the dry yeast from loose weight and start baking again - even cheaper than before.

I have joined the club of bread baking enthousiasts - I am now the lucky owner of an AFK BM3 bread baking machine. Let's see if I find it as fun as baking bread the ol' fashioned way.

(no I have not tried it out yet, but I will let you know how it turns out)

Mourning Dr. Oetker

Sarah sent me an online newspaper article about the sad news of today: Dr. Oetker has passed away. We know him and love him for his baking powder, sugar toppings, christmas recipes and more. Thank you Dr. Oetker for all the joy and lovely bakery you have given to this world. Your memory lives on.
