3. Sprinkle the yeast in to the lukewarm water and dissolve it gently.

4. Now let the yeast mix sit for 10 mins.

5. After 10 mins yeast will be foamy. The mix will be bubbly on the top. If there is no bubble on the top means yeast is out of date. See the 1st picture of proofed yeast.

5. Now you can use this mix to make the dough.

Tips and Notes:

Always check the expiry date on yeast pack before buying and make sure the date is long to be expired. Using expired yeast can cause your bread to stay flat without rising and make a tough, hard, chewy loaf rather than the light, fluffy.

It is better to use the thermometer to check the correct temperature of water for yeast proofing. Hot water can kill the active yeast.

Never add salt for proofing yeast. Salt also kill the active yeast.

Don’t move the proofing yeast bowl when yeast is proofing. Yeast should be sit without disturbance.
