* In ''WesternAnimation/TheMrMenShow'' episode "Restaurants", Miss Calamity is baking cinnamon buns. She names each ingredient she puts in the giant mixer as she puts it in: "Flour, sugar, milk, and just a little yeast to help the dough rise." But later on, she can't remember if she added the yeast, so she adds more yeast. This results in the dough filling up the bun shop, but Mr. Nosy and Mr. Small, who are outside the bun shop, don't even notice and leave without rescuing her!

** A non-food example happens in the episode "Trains", where Mr. Rude's collection of instant sponges ended up being wet and caused Mr. Persnickety being stuck in the cabin.
** "Radio" has Mr. Fussy trying to make dough after listening to Miss Helpful's cooking show, but this ends up making a glob of rising dough out of his house thanks to her.

Added DiffLines:

* Utilized in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'', where the Brain adds 28 cakes of yeast to a craft councilor's clay [[ItsALongStory in order to get him fired so he can take his job]], with Pinky even making a reference to the aforementioned ''Series/ILoveLucy'' example.
* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'', Pete was making bread dough, and when his back was turned, it started to rise out of control. When Peg asked him how much yeast he put in, he said he followed the recipe which said to put in a ''pint'', only to double check it and see that it actually said ''pinch''. Upon seeing the growing blob of dough, Pete tried to pass it off that he made enough to last a few months...just before it exploded and covered Pete and the kitchen.
-->'''Pete''': ''(To a smirking Peg)'' Whatever it was you were about to say, ''don't say it''.

* In ''Literature/TheBlissBakery'' series, this trope is justified by magical ingredients. Which make it possible to ruin kitchens on a much larger scale. The positive side of this is impossibly fluffy, airy cakes.

* A popular (and rather disgusting) practical joke is to throw a cake of yeast into an open latrine pit. Bread dough and wine actually lack the nitrogen nutrients needed for the yeast to thrive (that's the reason why moonshiners are often shown throwing the fertilizer into the wort), but the shit most emphatically ''doesn't'', and there's enough undigested sugars to make yeast happy. So you ''will'' end with an explosion of the most unpleasant kind, if only figuratively.

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo'' has Johhny make pancakes for a rest home, with his own pancake recipe - 3 parts yeast, ''8 parts yeast'' and '''yeast enchancer'''. The result is that the mix turns into a giant breadloaf that destroys the entire building.

* In ''HeyArnold'', the kids of the city work on the world's biggest pizza puff in a bid to break a world record. All seems well, until Sid reveals that he misunderstood "tsp" in the recipe. Instead of "teaspoons", he read it as "ten square pounds"! The resulting explosion of dough takes a good deal of the next day to wash off of the streets.
* Weaponized by The Breadmaster, a villain on ''TheTick'', first as bread bombs that can encase entire buildings when activated, and finally, as a giant souffle that will devour the whole city. Luckily, Tick manages to destroy it by generating a sonic boom while getting shot out of the Human Bullet's cannon.
