Brigit's Magickal Bread

  • 1 package of active dry yeast (1/4 ounce)
  • 1 1/4 Cup Plus Two Tablespoons Water
  • 1/3 Cup Honey
  • 2 Cups Whole-Wheat Flour
  • 1/3 Cup Chopped Red Rose Petals
  • 2 Tablespoons Poppy Seeds
  • 1/3 Cup Oil (for moister bread - optional)

If you are trying to win someone's love you may be able to entice him/her with this bread.  If your love is blond add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.  If your love is dark haired add 1/4 cup of finely chopped walnuts.  If your love is red headed add 1/4 cup of ground almonds.  If your love is stubborn and is slow to move into your embrace add 1 teaspoon of lemon extract to open his/her heart to you. - Jade Defrain

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Blend the yeast, water and honey.  Let stand for 5 to 10 minutes, until foaming.  Mix in the flour, rose petals, poppy seeds and oil or other additional ingredients and knead.  Add  more flour if the dough sticks to the side of the bowl.

Mold the dough into a ball.  Cover with a cloth for 1 hour.  Punch down the dough in the center and knead for approximately 5 minutes.

Place the dough in a greased loaf pan for about 1 hour, until doubled.  Bake for 35 to 40 minutes.
