For more than 140 years, Fleischmann’s Yeast has focused on teaching people how to raise bread. Now the company hopes to raise breast cancer awareness through their “Bake for the Cure” special contest which was judged on October 10, at the 2011 South Carolina State Fair.
Creative bakers entered a variety of breads featuring Fleischmann’s yeast. Baked goods in the main category, Best Yeast Breads, could be made in any flavor or shape. A second category, Best Whole Grain Breads, included whole grain recipes that had to contain at least 50 percent whole grains (like whole wheat ﬂour or rye ﬂour) and/or other whole grain ingredients (like oatmeal, ﬂax seed, bran cereals and bulgur). All-purpose or bread ﬂour had to be limited to 50 percent or less in the recipe. All recipes were required to be original.
