- Combine the boiling water and the bulgur and let stand for 15 minutes. In a separate bowl, mix together lukewarm water, yeast, and sugar. Let bubble. In a separate bowl, mix together molasses, margarine, and oil. When the bulgur mixture is lukewarm, combine all ingredients.

- This amount of yeast may have a slight yeast flavor. It is recommend to use no more than 0.775% instant dry yeast expressed as a baker's %, alternatively, 2.5% cake yeast (compressed) or 1.05% active dry yeast. Further reductions will result in less yeast flavor and longer bulk fermentation times.
