Please help before I go too far! I am wanting to make up some french bread today. I made a mistake in the directions.
They said mix yeast with sugar and warm (110) water, which I did. But then I also added the salt from the recipe which was not supposed to go in until I add the flour. Before I waste 5 cups of flour, I need to know.....Did I just Kill my Yeast with the salt? Or should I proceed? The liquid mixture is all bubbly and smells of yest.
You haven't killed anything. Add the flour and continue as directed. Bread is pretty durable. I have screwed up recipes many times, and in general the bread turns out fine.
Thank you SO much for answering AND helping me! I will go add the flour now and keep my fingers crossed. Have a great day!
