how to incorporate yeast: the dry blend method (video)
Hello, friendlies! Today is a special (and hopefully not too embarrassing) day for me, because today I am sharing with you a VIDEO.
That’s right. I finally put myself in front of the lens and… well, I’m no Food Network star but I didn’t completely fumble through it, so that’s cool.
The video I created is in partnership with my friends at Red Star Yeast. I’m doing a series of videos on simple techniques for better bread baking. This first one is all about incorporating yeast into a dough using the dry blend method. It sounds fancy, but it’s so easy and it yields great end results for your baking.
I won’t go into any more details because I explain most everything in the video, so check it out below and go forth feeling confident in your newfound bread baking knowledge.
Don’t forget to check out more videos like these on Red Star Yeast’s website!

Great video! I learned so much; you’re such a great teacher! PS I want that shirt you’re wearing 😉
FIRST, your face on camera just makes my day! You are the bread authority, and I love that you’re now teaching me on camera! It makes me so happy! And I learned something–the liquids have to be slightly warmer for the dry blend method. So smart!
I stocked up on a huge quantity of Red Star Active Dry Yeast due to a phenomenal sale but must admit I like the convenience of the Quick Rise. Am I understanding you correctly?…I can use my active dry yeast just like the quick rise by implementing the dry-blend-method in all my recipes? I feel like I’m breaking a cardinal baking rule, but I love the idea of not having to proof it first!:)
Love the video, Steph!
Allie — Thank you so much! P.S. Shirt’s from Target. As is my entire wardrobe. 😉
Christina — Thank you, lovely! Your support and encouragement completes me. 🙂
Sandra — Yep, that’s correct! It works for all types of yeast. 🙂
Rachel — Thanks, friend! 🙂
This is so great!! And so easy! Love it.
I love the video. You make it look so easy!!
What a informative video, I really didnt know that you could dry blend. Seems so much quicker than dissolving the yeast in water!
