Rapid Rise Yeast Turned my Bread into Pizza Dough

January 17, 2009 - 12:01pm -- dragon49

I have been making delicious Multi Grain Breads with my Breadmaker, using active dry yeast.  My local supermarket ran out and instead carried rapid rise yeast.  Thinking they were the same, I purchased a package and made 2 breads.  Something was odd, as they rose much higer than normally, the second one pressed agains the top glass.  This Bread "mushroomed" at the top.  The bread was physically light.  I gave the first Bread away and am awaiting a review.  The second brerad is too doughy.  It tastes like pizza without the sauce!  The Rye os not noticeable.
