El Molino Bread Yeast

My mother-in-law made what she called two-strories (a german roll) and on the recipe El Molino Yeast is listed. I used the yeast years ago, but now can't find it. Anyone know where to find it?

It appears that El Molino was a brand name of yeast produced/marketed by the El Molino (flour) Mills company - they had a cookbook they published using their brand name products (like many other companies did and still do) - last published around 1983 - can't find any indiciation they are still in business.

Just use another brand of yeast - sure it will turn out just as good.

If the recipe calls for a "cake" or "cube" - that's fresh yeast - hard to find these days. You might want to check this Baking911 page for suitable yeast substitutions.

Hope this helps!

Smile El Molino Bread Yeast

Thanks for all the input. I have made the two-stories with other yeasts, but I swear the El Molino was better somehow! Again, thanks. Janice (friskka) TX. Panhandle.
