      This bakes up into a loaf that is a lot like cornbread. I started the dough in my bread machine, combining the water, honey, egg and shortening first and then topping that with the barley flour, salt and finally the yeast. I took out the completed dough, shaped it and let it rest and rise in a warm place for an hour. I baked it about 15 minutes in my convection oven. As you can see, it didn't rise much, but it was light and tasty. Made for Every Day is a Holiday Tag.

      This bread was good tasting, but it was like cornbread. Of course, I might have made a mistake somewhere. Its good with honey butter slather on it. I also made my dough in my bread machine. I baked it in a round 10 inch cake pan with olive oil in the pan. I also thought I'd be clever and poke it giving the top a texture. This gave it the appearance of a giant peanut butter cookie. Next time I make it, I'll refrain from doing that and skip using the ABM too. Made for Spring PAC 2012.
