This recipe is FANTASTIC! I am not a bread maker, and this, in true reality, has been the only bread I have ever made without a feeling of helplessness. I am usually at a loss, and feel completely uneasy with making breads, but this recipe has helped tame that fear. I make it easier on myself by using a kitchen mixer for everything, so I dont have to mix it or knead it. I also love the fact that this recipe calls for NO EGGS, and NO REFINED SUGAR. It uses honey to be a natural sweetener, and let me tell you it is delicious!!! I got this recipe from a bread making class that I went to with some church friends. You do not have to use the gluten, enhancer, or lecithin which is what makes it basic, but I want to tell you that I get a much better product by using the first two. I, personally, have never used lecithin.
