    4 1/2   ts           Dry yeast
    2       c            Warm water
    2       tb           Honey
    2       c            Barley flour

   from the sides of the bowl.  Place dough on a lightly floured surface
   & knead well for 10 minutes.  Add more flour as necessary.  Place
   dough in a lightly oiled mixing bowl.  Cover & leave to double.

   cross in the centre.  Place on an oiled baking sheet, cover & let
   rise till doubled, 45 to 60 minutes.
