We have baked a few (thousand) loaves of bread in our day, and with all that practice we’ve learned a thing or two. One really handy cheat we’ve learned is to mix a teaspoon of sugar with the yeast for each loaf. This feeds the yeast and makes the rise just gorgeous! This tiny bit of sugar will get eaten by the yeast, so by the time your bread is risen and baked there will be negligible amounts of sugar left. Just make sure you don’t confuse the salt with the sugar – salt kills the yeast! Happy Baking!
