This recipe makes enough to make all or several of the following:
3.5 cups hot water
1 Tbsp yeast
1/3 cup agave
1 Tbsp + 1 tsp sea salt
2/3 cup canola oil
7 cups unbleached flour
1 cup wheat germ
1/2 flax meal
- Dissolve yeast in 2 cups of the hot water. Make sure the water is about bath-water warm, not too hot.
- Add remaining ingredients one by one, while mixing (including the 1.5 cups of warm/hot water), until they form a ball. The dough will still be slightly gooey and may stick to the sides of the bowl.
- Remove dough hook, cover with a towel, and let it rise for 40 minutes.
- Punch down and let it rise for 20 minutes.
- Divide into fourths.
Bake at 350 degrees.

Fresh, warm-out-of-the-oven, homemade bread. Is there anything better on a cool, rainy fall day? Maybe if you have no where to go, no kids to corral or fetch, and a quiet house, you could even eat your warm bread in peace. This is what I wish for all the busy mommies out there.
