This is Mums recipe that she got from her german friend Johanna....Mum has been making it for years with out fail....I have also got it down pat so now its your turn

1 cup boiling water
1 1/2 cups cold water
1 T honey
1 tsp yeast

4 cups flour( I do 2 cups w/meal and 2cups white)
2tsp salt

Dissolve the honey in the boiling water then add the cold water and the yeast.Leave to go frothy, mix in the flour and the salt.This is a very wet mixture so just give it a good mix up,then leave to double in size(covered)At this stage you could leave in for several hours with out a problem....Pour into greased loaf tins and leave to rise again in a warm place.Bake at 200 degrees for approx 3/4 hr. I take it out of the tins and bake for a further 10 mins or so or until when tapped it sounds hollow (this helps the loaf dry out a bit on the outside...
Hope this makes sense if not let me know
