New here :-)

Nothing drove that point home for me more than when I found that if I left
something other than flour, yeast, or water, out of my bread recipe, it really
didn't matter much. Moreover, if I put in an extra cupp of flour, or
inadvertently left one out, it didn't matter either. It still produced bread,
and the normal result wasn't sufficiently reproducible to point up any
difference between the amounts either...
