Today, I am trying again. Instead of just halving the ingredients, I am altering the amounts. So far the proof came out good. I used 1 1/2 Tbl. yeast, one cup ww flour, and one cup water. I let it sit for 45 minutes. It rose nicely. On to step two; added one cup ww flour & 1/4 cup vital gluten, and mixed well. I added the oil, honey and salt and continued to add ww flour. I continued to mix to a nice dough. I sprayed the kitchenaid bowl with a light coating of Pam and floured it. I added the ball to the mixed and started to knead on #2 for 10 minutes. I was worried about the dough sticking to the bowl, so as I saw that beginning to happen, I dusted the sides with a powdered dough enhancer that contains lecithin. I probably added maybe two tablespoons full. I placed the dough in my Hammarplast dough bowl and it is rising well.
This bowl is probably one of the best investments I ever made. You don't need to grease it, the air circulates all around it and with the lid you don't have to worry about drafts. I purchased it from Williams Sonoma, probably 25 years ago. I understand the company doesn't make them anymore. Too bad.
