Rice Bread
Rice is very much a Southern crop and during the War rice flour was used in many recipes. 

What you need
2 cups of milk
1/4 cup of honey (you can use sugar if you wish)
1 packet or two tablespoons of yeast
1/4 cup of vegetable oil
5 cups of strong unbleached white flour
1 cup of rice flour
2 beaten eggs
4 teaspoons of salt
A Rice Loaf

What you do
Pour the milk and honey into a large bowl and if you are using fresh yeast warm the mixture before stirring in the yeast (with packet yeast you do not need to warm the milk and honey - just stir it in).  Next add the other ingredients in the given order and mix into a  dough. Add more flour if necessary to make a firm dough. Then turn the dough out onto a floured table and knead and knead and knead.  The more kneading you do the better the result will be.  After kneading form the dough into a ball put it into a greased bowl.  Roll the ball of dough around in the bowl so that it is greased all over.  Cover the bowl and leave in a warm place for the dough to rise.  The dough will be ready when it has doubled in size.  Once your dough has risen turn it out onto the floured table once more and give it a little more kneading.  Divide the dough into two and put into two greased bread tins. Bake in a hot oven (375 F) for about half an hour.  A test to see if your bread is done is to tap the top of a loaf and if it sounds hollow it is done.
