Brown Bread


Take one pound of brown meal and put it into a basin and rub it into one ounce of butter; take one ounce of German yeast, mix it with a quarter of a pint of tepid milk and water and a pinch of salt, mix the yeast into the milk and pour it into the centre of the flour in the basin, sprinkle a little of the flour over the yeast mixture, cover the flour up and stand the basin in the screen for about one and a half hours, then knead it up into a dough with rather better than a gill of tepid water, return it to the screen and let it rise for about an hour, then make up into any shape required and bake in a moderate oven for one hour.
