Why Isn’t My Dough Rising

To start, you need to make sure that both the dough and yeast are at room temperature. If they’re too cold then it could cause problems for your rising time!

It’s a perfect time for baking with the warm summer weather just around the corner. But what about when you need your bread or pizza dough to rise?

It turns out that winter is not so great after all–especially if it’s cold outside and there are few opportunities for indoor warmth!

Proofing your yeast is an important process that will ensure the success of any baking project. The water should be between 105 and 115ºF for optimal rising power.

The life span of yeast is very specific and should be followed carefully. If you use it past its “best-by date”, there will not likely be any rise at all from your bread or cakes with this ingredient!

First things first: make sure to always check when purchasing new packs because some stores carry expired products.

In addition to the four ingredients usually found in yeast bread, there’s one more: salt.

But too much can keep your starter from working properly and foiling all of those delicious baked goods you’ve been making! 

Measure carefully! The same goes for sugar.

Sugar absorbs liquid in the same way that yeast needs it for growth and development.

So if there isn’t enough hydration present (the amount of water) to begin with then you’ll end up with an ineffective risen product due primarily to too much sugar usage instead!

Hi, this recipe says it only requires 1/4 cups of bread flour. Is that correct? It does not seem right. Thank you.

Oh my goodness. No. It's 3 1/4 cups of flour. Not sure what happened to the 3 but thank you for calling this to my attention.
