cake yeast vs dry yeast in a cold dough recipe

Does any one know if you can subitute dry active yeast in a cold dough recipe instead of cake yeast? I have a recipe for nut rolls that has to be refridgerated over night and I'm having problems with the cake yeast. It is not rising so i was wondering if anyone could tell me if I could use day yeast instead?

You can use acive dry yeast in a dough and refrigerate it overnight for a slow rise.

Yes; but I suggest you rehydrate the dry yeast with other liquid you would put into the mix...
By this I mean... put the yeast with the liquid called for in your recipe, stir it up some, let it reat a little- go ahead then and prepare the recipe.

I knew whatcha meant. And yes, dry yeast (granulated) works great in refridgerated dough. in fact, I placed some raw bread dough in the fridge, in a half-filled zip-lock style bag about a week ago. I checked it the next day (about 24 hours later) and the bag had burst, spilling dough all over one of my fridge shelves. It had risen too much for the bag to contain. So make sure to give the dough room to expand in whatever container is going to hold it.

The great thing about refridgerated dough is that the protien structures have had time to relax, making for a more tender end result. You get the softest breads and pastries that way. Just ask my wife about my pastries and bread. She'll vouch for me. (of course I'm the sole wage earner fo my household, so she'd better And I have her permission to say that, I think.)

Oh, and Bucky, you guys had to break out the scuba gear to get through NY streets like those blue bloods in MA.? If so, take yourself a speargun. I hear there are a lot of suckers in NY City.

Ooooooh, ouch. I'm so sorry. Couldn't resist.

Seems my sump pump just had to fail during a bout of three days worth of rain. Usually, no problem. But I had 4 inches of water down there, and with more rain expected. All fixed now though)
