Sweet Honey Bread

    3 hours 5 minutes

    This bread made in the bread machine has a light crispy crust. I like to drizzle honey over it while it is baking.

    I don’t use a bread machine so I proof the yeast in the water, honey and sugar that I had warmed to 110º. If you are planning to use the dough hook on your KA to knead – don’t. The dough ball is so small that the hook doesn’t pick it up or at least mine didn’t. I manually kneaded it by hand and baked it at 350º for 25 minutes. The bread is very, very subtly sweet and the honey doesn’t come through as much as I had hoped although I added a tablepoon of honey, however I did not drizzle the honey while baking. It still was very good and makes a lovely little loaf of bread. We thought it was very good.  -  25 Aug 2012


    I made this bread by hand and baked with with egg white on the top for 20 minutes on 375. It was golden, lovely, and very lightly sweet. My husband flipped and ate the whole thing. I'm keeping it in my records forever.  -  04 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    First time the aroma was great but it was a little denser then we liked. I added 2 tablespoons of water and changed the salt and sugar to 1/2 teaspoon. The flavor is great and this is one of our favorites.  -  06 Mar 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
