    Question:Unknownchef86's- Very- Best- Dinner- Rolls

    Unknownchef86's Very Best Dinner Rolls Is there another way to make the yeast rise than the recipe indicates? I did it as directed and the yeast didn't proof and the yeast was dated for 2-14-2014. Also, was it possible that the milk was too warm or not warm enough? Could I just put the yeast in a mixture of 1 t. sugar and 1/4 cup 1/2 cup of warm water or milk to proof it and when done, add the 2 cups of warm water?

    Sure you can do it as you suggest. I proof my yeast by sprinkling it over room temperature or barely warm water and stir in a spoonful of flour into it. I think the flour makes it easier to see that the yeast is viable.

    Too warm water or milk is definitely the most likely reason for the yeast not activating.

    If you have already mixed it into the flour and made the dough, you can make a fresh batch of yeast and proof it to make sure it's good. Tear the dough into chunks, sprinkle the proofed yeast over it and then remix and reknead the dough. i have had to do this any number of times, although for me it's because I forgot the yeast completely!
