Shaping the Loaf
Make a Loaf of Lammas Bread

Shape a head, arms and legs out of the dough. Bake in your oven, and when finished, jazz up the bread with some melted butter and herbs.

Shape the two lower sections into legs, the side sections into arms, and the top section into a head, as shown in the photo (Figure 2). Bake the bread for 40 minutes, at about 350 degrees, or until golden brown. After baking, remove from oven and allow to cool on a wire rack. Brush the bread man with melted butter, sprinkle with herbs if you like, and use in your Lammas ritual.
