Flatbread Recipe calls for Easy Yeast...I only have Dried Active

Can I use Dried Active yeast in place of easy blend?

I'm making flatbreads (Rick Stein's recipe).
The recipe calls for 250ml warm water so I assume I would simply top up the yeast/water blend to 250ml before adding to the recipe?

Are there any other things to be taken into consideration? Thanks smile

Just dissolve the yeast in the 250mls warm water before adding to the flour.

Thank you 😊 One more question: does the quantity of yeast remain the same? Recipe calls for 2tspns easy yeast.

I make Jamie Oliver's flatbreads, no need for yeast!

Hmm maybe not then. Although I always just use them interchangeably and have never noticed any difference!

Thanks everyone. From the answers here & those I found via google search, it seemed consensus varies from double the number of grams vs just 25% more. I was only working with 350g flour so I compromised & added 1.5 tspns of dried active yeast which I diluted in 150ml water with a tspn of sugar. Once it was frothy I added the additional 100ml water & mixedthe dough. It worked perfectly 😊 Thank you for taking the time to respond!
