Ok here’s the bread recipe I wanted to post today. I hope you enjoy it!
1 tblsp. + 2 tsp. active dry yeast
1-1/4 cups warm water (110 to 115 degrees)
1/2 (1 stick 4oz) unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup honey
2 tsp. salt
3 large eggs
3 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tblsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup granulated sugar
(Mix together and set aside)
1/2 cup (1stick, 4oz.) butter, melted and divided
1/4 cup honey
In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the butter, honey, salt, eggs, whole wheat flour, and half cup all-purpose flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining all-purpose flour to form a soft dough. Do not knead. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Lightly punch down dough. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Lightly punch down dough. Divided in half, roll dough into 2 rectangular squares enough to fit into a 9-inch loaf pan. Brush with melted butter, and evenly sprinkle with cinnamon mixture. Roll up tightly and pinch end to seal. Brush 2, 9-inch pans with melted butter, place dough into pan. Repeat with remaining dough. Brush the tops with butter. Let rise in a warm place until almost doubled. Bake in a preheated 350 degrees oven for 45-50 minutes, or until when thumped on top sounds hollow. Brush tops with honey butter.
This is a really good bread and so easy to make, with no kneading required!
I have 4 cakes to get done this week, one Ray delivered to the VA yesterday for me. Tonight I’m working a cake for a young man who loves motorcycles. The last 2 cakes are for a nursing home on Saturday. I can’t believe I signed up for this many cakes! Wow it’s going to be a busy week!!!
Well until next time! 🙂
