Yeast cake help

I have a recipe that our family loves and only makes once a year. It calls for one small yeast cake. I have checked all of our local, large grocery stores and no one carries them anymore. Does anyone have a suggestion for a subsitution? I would assume you could use dry active yeast I just don't know how much. Thanks.

Yes. You can substitute as follows:

1 yeast cake = 1 pkg yeast = 2-1/4 tsps active dry yeast
