  Categories: Breadmaker, Substitute
       Yield: 32 servings
  
            -SYLVIA STEIGER; GEnie
       1 c  Lecithin granules
       1 tb Vitamin C powder
       1 tb Ginger, ground
  
   Mix all ingredients and store in tightly closed glass jar.
   
   Add to breadmaker 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.
   
   THE BREADMACHINE COOKBOOK IV by Donna Rathmell German has a section
   titled “Dough Enhancers” and in that section it mentions Lecithin.
   “Lecithin is a food supplement which is obtained from oil in egg
   yolks or soy beans. It improves moisture   and assists in expansion
   and elasticity of the bread dough. Add between 1 and 1 1/2 tsp. of
   lecithin granules per cup of flour.”
