Nice job on the Amish bread Norma. Could you make any comparisons of this bread with similar breads you've made in the pass with IDY or perhaps even fresh CY?
Thanks for saying I did a nice job on the Amish bread.
I only tried this bread recipe one other time with IDY, but that time I didnít do everything right. I still probably didnít do everything right, because I donít bake a lot of bread, but the attempt today turned out a lot better in taste of the bread. There was something special about it, but I am not sure it was from the CY and molasses starter, the bulk ferment before dividing, scaling, then into the pan, or if it was the two punch downs, then letting it ferment in the pans again. I never tried fresh cake yeast when making bread. I would love to play around more with making bread, but eat too much pizzas as it is. I will see how the ďgangĒ at my granddaughters home likes the bread tomorrow for Christmas. The Amish bread does have a little sweet taste in the bread, but that is the way Amish bread is supposed to taste.
