Bread Making 101-Part I

Never made bread before? My friend it is as easy as cake-uh I mean bread; well, you get the idea. Start out by putting the yeast in your bowl, add the gluten, about a 1/3 of the sugar and a little bit of warm, warm water to get it all nice and bubbly (the post for the recipe is at the end if you've missed it). It should look like this:

It should be all bubbly and have a nice yeasty fragrance. This is a good test for your yeast too. If there's no action with your yeast after a while, you know it's time to say adios and get some fresh stuff. Actually, I think my stuff is a little old, it's usually a little more puffy, but it will still work.
