Hi Malcolm - woops! We made a mistake - you're right, 3kg is far too much. The actual amount is 300g, this has now been amended. Thanks for pointing this out, and sorry for the confusion!
Hi Eileen. Vitamin C (or Ascorbic acid) increases the volume and lift of the bread. It creates an acidic environment in which the yeast can work better (hence the lift) and it also helps to act as a preservative.
Many people find they are unable to knead by hand. By all means get a machine to do the work for you if this helps! Use a dough hook on a kitchen mixer, or knead the dough in a bread machine before shaping by hand to pop into the oven.
