• Dough Enhancer

    1 c lecithin granules
    1 tbs vitamin C powder
    1 tbs ginger, ground

    Mix all ingredients and store in tightly closed glass jar.

    Add to bread maker in amount equal to yeast with other dry ingredients.
    Start machine. Apparently, the ginger gooses the yeast and makes
    it act more swiftly, the ascorbic acid strengthens the gluten, and
    the lecithin aids the oil in causing the strands of gluten to slip
    against each other more easily and thus rise better.

      I love this recipe. I found it works best if you give it a whirl in the food processor so that it is powdery and all of the same consistancy.

      I have heard of adding ginger but didn't know why. Cool to know. Now where does one find lecithin?

      Can I use this with oven baking instead of in a bread machine?
