Bread Baking 101 - Dough Enhancer recipe

A dough enhancer merely gives a little longer life to your bread. It is a homemade preservative of sorts.

Here is the recipe that I use:

4 cups powdered milk

3/4 cup lecithin (you can get through a health food store or a local cooperative)

3 Tbsp. vitamin C crystals or powder (health food store, too)

2 Tbsp ginger (ground)

3 Tbsp cornstarch

You mix it all together and keep it stored at room temperature for quite some time. Most recipes do not call for more than a few tablespoons of this mixture at a time.

There are other recipes out there and I do believe my MegaCooking book by Jill Bond has one, too. More about Jill Bond... I do so LOVE here stuff...
