[Hannah]: Baking

Today I made one of the best breads of my life. Of course, this was also the day that I couldn't find the measuring spoons so I had no idea what I did.

1/2 t (maybe?) rapid yeast
1 c (maybe?) water
1 t (maybe?) honey
2 T (maybe?) wheat germ
1/2 cup (maybe?) plain unbleached flour.

mix and let sit in warm spot for 5 hours.

add flour until soft dough can be formed into a ball. Knead, but not too much.

Let sit 1 hr. Punch down.

Let sit 45 min. form into boule and sit it on floury pastry cloth for 45 more min.

preheat oven to 425 with pizza stone and flower pot inside.

spritz dough with water. Place on pizza stone and invert flower pot over dough. quickly return to oven.

bake 40 min or until you say "oh, yikes, the bread is still in the oven." i have never managed to overbake a loaf of bread. they just get crustier and better.
