What are the baking times for quick bread and yeast bread made in a 7x3x2 metal pan?

Exact times will depend on a variety of factors -- your oven's actual temperature, the ingredients used, etc. Instead, bake until set and light brown, then test for doneness. For quick breads, insert a toothpick. It should come out with just a crumb or two clinging to it. (Some will tell you it should come out clean, but that's how you get dried out baked goods.) For yeast bread, take the loaf out and thump it like a watermelon (like knocking on a door.) It will sound hollow when done. Enjoy!

Why is yeast bread kneaded?

The action of kneading yeast bread stretches and tears the gluten strands in the dough. Letting the dough rest between kneads allows the strands to reform and repair themselves, becoming "stronger" and more robust. This improves the texture and taste of the bread.

Kneading also helps distribute the ingredients.

What is the function of flour in yeast bread?

Flour is the "stuff" that bread is made of. It provides the starches and proteins that give bread its substance and texture. A tiny amount of the starch provides the nutrients for the yeast, which generate carbon dioxide bubbles, causing the dough to "rise".

What allows yeast breads to rise as it is the only leavening agent used?

It is the action of the yeast that causes breads to rise. Yeast as it grows produces carbon dioxide this is trapped in the bread dough and causes the dough to rise.

Leavening with yeast is a process based on fermentation, biologically changing the chemistry of the dough or batter as the yeast works. Yeast leavening requires proofing, which allows the yeast time to reproduce and consume carbohydrates in the flour.

What does citric acid do to yeast bread dough?

Hello

It is very complex to explaine, but i can say that citric acid slows co2 generation from yeast.

Why? because citric acid is produced by yeast in CO2 generation, and, if you add it in the dough the yeast can´t go on to complete the process.

Then, here the competiton against Bacterias is more equal than the no citric acid dough, and bacterias are responsable for enzimes generation.

This enzimes are natural dough conditioner and finally, the bread became softer, but you must leave rest the dough more time to increase volume before cooking.

This process is better using sourdough for bread making.

Don´t worry for flavor, and be expected to get more volume in bread, and more "oven spring".

Does it make any difference if you use unsalted butter vs salted butter in making yeast bread?

The only difference would be the amount of salt you would use in the recipe. If the recipe calls for unsalted butter and you're using salted, just decrease the amount of salt used in the recipe by a very small amount. If it calls for salted butter and you're using unsalted, then you increase the amount of salt by a very small amount. By small amount, that would be about 10% of the amount called for in the recipe.
