I've got a couple of recipe books from the 40's and I've been looking through them lately for more basic ideas. The bread recipes all say to use a cake of yeast. I don't buy yeast in cakes, I buy it in loose granules.

The recipe that I first used for bread called for a packet of yeast. I started buying in bulk and replaced the packet with 2 1/4 tsp, which some other website said was the equivalent. Now I've got all these recipes calling for cakes of yeast - would a cake be equivalent to a packet?

TIA

My red star yeast packets says:
a 2 oz. yeast cake is (3) 1/4 oz. packets
bulk would be 2 1/4 tsp. equal 1/4 oz. packet
