It might be worth putting "bread" in quotes in the last question, since it's not really a type of bread.

And it was odd that you had to type the full name. Usually when part of the name is in the question, the type-ins allow you to answer with only the missing part.

That has been fixed. Typing "ginger" will work now.

The question on the fairy tale was quite confusing as I immediately thought of Little Thumbling. While that episode is also included in Hansel and Gretel, it's more famous that of Little Thumbling, at least in Italy. You might want to allow both as an answer.

Around me H&G is much more famous, probably because it seems the Little Thumbling doesn't appear in Grimmborthers' collection.

Bread rises because of trapped CO2 produced by the yeast. Saying that yeast causes bread to rise makes it sound like the yeast multiplies and expands. If you want a one-word answer for what makes bread rise, I would say 'fermentation.' If you want the answer to be 'yeast', the question should be 'Which traditional ingredient causes the fermentation that causes bread to rise?' or something like that.

I put yeast. It was 5 simple little letters.

Adding fermentation as a type-in seems like a fair compromise!

Also, Irish Soda bread is leavened by sodium bicarbonate, producing CO2, no yeast in sight - i second that the answer should be CO2, with yeast/bicarb/fermentation/.... also accepted.

I easily got the answer, but agree with JoshPen. Yeast breads aren't the only type of breads, either, as jbjt05 said. Corn bread, biscuits, quick breads such as banana bread, etc. all rise from the chemical reactions of baking powder or baking soda, not yeast. If fermentation isn't accepted, at least accept baking soda and baking powder.

A helpful historical fact, Marie Antoinette never said "Let them eat cake"! The phrase was in existence years before she married, attributed to "a great Princess" (conveniently unnamed) in a work by Rosseau. The first attribution of HER saying it was nearly 50 years after her death. Also, the literal translation of the phrase is brioche, not cake.

Agree wholeheartedly with JBrommit. The attribution is totally bogus and the use of "supposedly" to qualify the statement is weaselly. I'd sub in "peace, land and bread" in its place.

Same here, although the phrase really is "bread and circuses". However "bread and games" is definitely an alternative phrasing that I think should be accepted.

Nice quiz. Two suggestions 1. Please allow more time. I know I'm pretty slow on my phone, but I had no where near enough time. Suggest adding at least 1 minute. 2. Suggest making Lord's Supper also acceptable for Eucharist. Many protestants don't use the word Eucharist. Thanks for your consideration

Yes, I totally back that. Need more time, and I thought I was typing "lord's supper" wrong the whole time...

I tried garlic, breadsticks, panini, foccacia and couldn't figure out why none of them worked... until I read the question again and it said "Indian"
