|3 cups||Flour (mix white, wholewheat, oat, etc.)|
|2 tablespoons||Wheat gluten (optional)|
|1 tablespoon||Malt (optional)|
|½ cup||Warm water|
Dissolve yeast in warm water with 1 tsp honey. Set aside and let rise 5 minutes. Mix together dry ingredients. Stir in yeast mixture. Add honey, molasses, oil, and as much of the ½ C water as needed to make a moist but not sticky dough. When dough is ready to knead, place a large jar of water and a microwave-safe baking dish (i.e. bowl, caserole, ceramic or clay pot, corningware, etc.) in the microwave and heat on high for 5 minutes. Knead dough while water is heating. When water is hot, place dough in the baking dish which is still in the microwave and heat on high for 1 minute. Set timer and allow dough to rise for 20 minutes. When dough has sufficiently risen, bake on high for 5-7 minutes, depending on thickness of loaf. Bread is done when the crust springs back when pressed.
