  Stock 1 Quart
  Baking yeast 1 Tablespoon
  Sourdough starter 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Soy grits 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Milk powder 1 Cup (16 tbs) (1 1/3 Cup Instant)

Knead until smooth and elastic, let rise until double, punch the dough down.
Divide the dough into 3 parts. Knead the poppy seeds into one part and shape into a loaf. Knead the flax seeds into the second part, and shape. Finally, for the third loaf: roll the dough out flat, but not too thin; spread raisins all over the surface, sprinkle with sweet spices, then drizzle honey over all. Roll it. up tightly like a jelly roll, then fold and shape it gently to fit into your oiled bread pan. Place the first 2 loaves in oiled pans also.
Let all the loaves rise until they are almost double. The loaf with the added fruit and seeds may get bigger than the others.
Bake at 350°F for about 1 hour.
