Simple home made bread

This Recipe is from a lovely Waldorf inspired book called 'Heaven on Earth', by Sharifa Oppenheimer. The children helped knead and shape the bread dough into letters, shapes and animals.

Foolproof No-Rise Bread Recipe

Dissolve in 1 cup boiling water:
4 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup honey

Stir until cool 

In a separate bowl, dissolve in 1.5 cups lukewarm water:

2 Tbsp dry baker's yeast
Add to honey-butter and stir.

Add, 1 cup at a time:

6-7 cups whole wheat pastry flour.
Knead on floured board.
Shape into rolls, bunnies, bread baskets, braids etc.

Bake at 350 F, 40-45 mins (depending on oven). Tap on top to test- a hollow sound means it's done.
