Dough Enhancer

I received an email from Jim, a reader who had purchased a Bosch Universal Plus. He had questions about my Whole Wheat Bread Recipe. He asked what type of yeast I use and where I purchase dough enhancer. I thought these questions might be of interest to others.

The most economical place in our area to purchase yeast is Sam’s Club. It is the Fleischmann’s Instant Yeast and costs $4.68 for 2 – 16oz bags. Once opened, I transfer the yeast from the bag to an airtight container and place it in the refrigerator. It lasts for a long time!

While you may purchase dough enhancer, the most economical is the following homemade recipe:

  • ¾c. lecithin powder or granules - I use granules found from my affiliate partner HERE.
  • 3 Tbsp. pure vitamin C powder
  • 2 Tbsp. ground ginger (from my affiliate -where to buy spices)
  • 3 Tbsp. cornstarch (organic)
Instructions
  1. Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container.

    Use 1 Tbsp. of dough enhancer for a 4 loaf recipe. Adjust the amount when making more or less loaves.

  1. Great recipe, but my real question is about the Bosch. DO you have any suggestions for a place to acquire one for my wife that would be a good deal? I have seen these things in action and know we could really use it. Great for making homemade bread. I am also enjoying your post about your family. Having grown up in a large one myself,(Seven kids) I can relate quite a bit. Lots of fun.

    do you have a cook book with all of the recipes in it. I would love to purchase it if you have one published
    thank you

  3. I would like to know why the ginger is added to the dough enhancer? Is it absolutely necessary and does it change the flavor of the bread. I don’t particularly care for ginger. Thank you

    • Christie, the ginger does not affect the flavor of the bread – you are using so little of it you will never know it is there – but it does make a difference in how the bread rises and its texture.
