Making Bread

Fun baking fact! When yeast dough goes in the oven and PWAAAAH has that quick rise before it starts to brown, it's called oven spring! When I first heard the term in class I loved it so much because it's like omg the yeast is so excited to make some beautiful bread that it just explodes

Oven spring!! That’s such a nice name for it haha, it’s so whimsical and fun! It’s like the yeast is like “alright y’all it’s our time to shine!! >:3″
