  • Type O (2 beneficials)
  • Appetizer
  • 3 cups warm water
  • 1 Tablespoon instant yeast
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/3 cup oil(olive, or such)
  • 1 Tablespoon sea salt
  • 1/3 to 2/3 cup honey(depending on sweetness)
  • 7+ cups of flour(I use 1 cup brown rice, 1 cup whole spelt 1/3 cup flax meal, and the rest white spelt. You could use any combination)
How to make it:
  1. Mix water, egg, oil, and honey.
  2. Add salt, yeast, and flour. (I kind of cheat here because I have a bosch machine that kneads my bread for me, but I suppose you knead about 3-5 minutes.)
  3. Now here is a great secret for moist bread. Knead on a surface with olive oil (not floured), this will help keep your dough moist.
  4. Cover and let rise until double.
  5. Put into 3 oiled bread pans.
  6. Put in oven at 200 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 minutes, then turn heat up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes or until done.
