I want to do this recipe which contains these ingredients for the bread part..
250g/9oz strong white bread flour, plus extra for dusting
8g instant yeast
50g/1¾oz unsalted butter, softened, plus extra for greasing
135ml/4½fl oz whole milk
1 free-range egg, lightly beaten
and the method...
- Tip the flour into a large mixing bowl, then add the salt to one side of the bowl and the yeast to the other. Add the butter, milk and egg and stir the mixture with your fingers until it comes together as a dough. Continue mixing until the sides of the bowl are clean and the dough is soft.
- Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5-6 minutes, or until the dough has stopped feeling sticky and has a smooth, silky exterior. Return the dough to the bowl, cover with cling film and set aside to prove in a warm room for at least 30 minutes and up to one hour.
Its asks for
instant yeast - I have this yeast described as Dried active baking yeast, suitable for hand-baking only.
Is this the same thing? I couldn't find 'instant yeast'. Can I use this yeast in this recipe and can I use it exactly as described in the method?
