   Raised bread is made with yeast, salt, and sometimes a
      little butter or lard, and is mixed with warm milk or
      water to form the dough, which, after kneading, is given
      time to rise before baking.

   Cream of tartar bread is raised by the action of an
      alkaline carbonate or bicarbonate (as saleratus or
      ammonium bicarbonate) and cream of tartar (acid tartrate
