Cookbook Reviews...Fleischmann’s Yeast Best-Ever Breads.



One of my favorite go-to bread-baking books is Fleischmann’s Yeast Best-Ever Breads.  A large paperback, with 79 pages, it was published in 1993, 125 years of Fleischmann’s being in business.  My copy is very well used - I think I sent for it with an offer on a yeast package or magazine advertisement.
Back Cover of Book
This book is pretty up-to-date, with directions for cake, dry and rapid rise yeast.  They use a variety of methods, including bread machines and food  processors, as well as traditions methods, rapid rise “one-rise” methods, electric mixer methods and no-knead batter methods, as well as Cool-rise and refrigerator doughs, freezer doughs, sourdough recipes and even an English muffin bread recipe made in the microwave!  There is something for every baker in this book.  Methods are accurate, photos are beautiful, and it’s hard to put this book down.  If you can pick this up at a used book sale, buy it!

  1. Have you tried their English muffin bread? Yummy! I give it as Christmas gifts to my family. They rave about it. I haven't bought english muffins in years.

    1. I haven't tried Fleischmann’s recipe, but no doubt it is very similar to one I use English Muffin Bread.
      We love it too!

  2. I have the Red Star yeast version of this, semi-hardcover, spiral bound. Many, many recipes in many categories. Really great book. My copy is a little dog-eared also!

    1. Yes, I treasure and use all the old yeast company cookbooks I have too. The recipes are no-fail!
