Active Dry Yeast vs Instant Yeast plus Baking Soda and Baking PowderYou will learn:

  • What’s the difference between Active Dry Yeast vs Instant Yeast, and what is Rapid Rise?
  • Why do I need to use both Baking Soda & Baking Powder?
  • How do these leaveners work to make my bread rise?

I created the printable cheatsheet so you will be able to make more informed decisions in your baking, as well as troubleshoot if something goes wrong.
