Vitamin C Method = super accelerated rising

Hey everyone,

I was just wondering if anyone else used the "Vitamin C Method" that I use for all my pizzas.  The ascorbic acid of the Vitamin C creates a reaction with the yeast that speeds up the rising process dramatically, cutting it down to only one short rise. 

Just curious.

Lazy Man's Bread Recipe

Hi, sometimes I make bread when I visit friends and this one is simple to remember.  It's also simple to make for newbies:

Ingredients:

- 1 tablespoon each of yeast, molasses, and salt

- 5 cups warm water

- 12 cups flour (usually I use whole wheat mixed with a bit of white)

1. preheat oven to 170 F and put yeast, water, molasses mixture in for a few minutes (until it foams) - turn off oven

2. mix flour(s) and salt and then mush in the water/yeast/molasses mix
