Make a rather thick sponge of white flour, I cake or 1/2 cup yeast, 2 1/2 pints water, and 1 teaspoon salt. When light, stir in Graham flour till it is as thick as can be stirred with a spoon, and 1 cup sugar or molasses. Put immediately into the pans to rise for baking. It requires a slow oven and takes over an hour to bake. Sometimes, if the sponge is not quite as thick as intended, it is necessary to use more white flour, when stirring to put into the pans. Graham bread should never be kneaded.
