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.

pretty good. Okay, you’re just going to have to trust me on this….
I hate to be bossy, but sometimes you just have to yield to fussiness for really good results.
Once you’ve finished assembling all the layers, you then cover the whole thing with a thin layer of icing.
This is called the “crumb layer”.
Put it in the fridge for about an hour to harden up.
This means that when you do the final layer, there will be no crumbs ruining the finished result.
Much as I hate to admit it……it actually does make a difference.
