I am hoping somebody can help me. I checked out a rather old cookbook from the public library today- something about Soups and Breads. A great many of the bread recipes call for yeast cakes rather than packets or measurements.

Are yeast cakes still around? If so, where do I find them?

Can I substitute yeast packets? Or measured yeast? Why or why not?

I want to become a good bread maker, and some of these recipes were unique and tasty sounding. I just don't want to guess wrong.

Thanks for your help. I saw the result today of Challah bread without eggs, and hate looking at sad bread!!!

Shimmer :confused:
