A "compressed yeast cake" is called for in each of my great-grandmother's bread recipes. Can I use active dry yeast as a substitution for one? If so, how much active dry yeast should I substitute per compressed yeast cake?

Yes, those cakes are typically 0.6 ounces, and when substituting you should use one packet of active dry yeast.
