Refers to bread that uses yeast as a leavener. The yeast causes the formation of carbon dioxide gas through fermentation of the sugars in the bread dough. This causes the bread to rise, making it light and airy. Yeast bread is formed into countless shapes and sizes. It can be prepared with a simple mixture of flour, salt, and water (and the yeast) or it may incorporate an elaborate variety of ingredients that enrich and flavor the bread.
