Success Tip: We found from our testing that the same amount of yeast is needed for both the 1 1/2-pound and 2-pound loaves.

Fresh lemon or lime peel should be grated from only the outermost colored skin layer of the fruit. The white layer under the skin, called the pith, is bitter be careful not to grate too deeply to avoid having the pith become part of your grated peel.

To get the most juice out of an orange, roll a room-temperature orange on a counter top before squeezing. This helps break down its tissue, so more juice can be released.
