I haven't used fresh yeast in years!!....

...mostly because it's such a pain to get a hold of. Not any more now I have discovered it on Ocado! This is beautiful quality yeast and is freezable. I cut each block into quarters, wrap each one in cling film and freeze, because that is about the amount I will use at a time when I need it. Here's a weekday dinner pizza recipe: In the morning before work... Mix 1/4 of one of these blocks of yeast with 1/2 teaspoon of sugar. Leave for a couple of mins then add to 320ml warm water. Add this yeasty potion to 250g 00 pasta flour and 250 strong white flour with 1 t salt which has been mixed in a bowl. Combine and knead for 10 mins (again in the bowl..less mess and bother than the work top). Coat with a tiny bit of olive oil and cover bowl with cling film. Go to work.....Come home. Make 3 pizza shaped discs out of your beautifully risen dough, top with passata / basil / cheese etc. and bake in an oven as hot as it will go (about 240) on a pre heated tray for 10 mins. Perfect.

Excellent yeast for breadmaker!

I totally agree with the other reviews that this yeast makes the most excellent, tasty bread! I have had a breadmaker for about a year now and have experimented with different flours and yeast both fresh and dried and this yeast makes far superior bread! It is light and airy and just takes delicious! I have frozen the rest of the cubes as per the reviews suggested and it still makes the most excellent bread I have ever tasted! Yum, Yum!

I'll never go back to using dried yeast after this - the results are just so much better and more reliable
