One Hour Bread

(from Peachblossm’s recipe box)

Makes 2 loaves or a big batch of cinnamon rolls. use 1 1/4 cups white wheat and 4 cups bread flour for a slightly denser loaf. Don’t measure the liquid lecithin, you’ll never get it off the measuring spoon; just pour a quarter sized dallop for each Tbsp. After the bread rises it won’t look high enough, don’t worry, it will finish in the oven. I’ve noticed lately that my bread comes out better if I add an extra tbsp or two of water and only mix for 4 1/2 minutes. You don’t want the dough to be too dry or too stiff.
