Barley Bread


1 envelope yeast
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup lukewarm water
2 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. honey
2 cups barley flour (freshly ground if possible)
1/2 tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 425°F (218°C). Put the yeast in lukewarm water with honey, then add the salt, egg and butter. Stir in the flour and knead for a couple of minutes on a lightly floured surface. Place dough in large greased bowl and cover with a fresh towel. Let it stand in a warm place for 1 1/2 hours. The dough will rise slightly. Turn out the dough and knead again. Shape it and place it on a lightly greased baking sheet, cover and let it stand for 1 hour. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown and bread sounds hollow when tapped. Turn out on a cooling rack and wrap in a towel.
