Fresh Homemade Bread with Honey Butter
Fresh Homemade Bread and Honey Butter!
Now this will take to back to the good ole’ and the smell of fresh bread baking in the oven. You’re standing there by the stove waiting and waiting for this bread to get done and our hoping to be the first one to slice off that end piece and slather it with some real honey butter and take that first bite. Oh, it’s heavenly. It’s nice and warm to the touch and just melts in your mouth with that sweet buttery goodness.
This is Not gluten free! Yep! That’s right! It’s is fully loaded! I haven’t made bread for my husband in years and he asked for it over the weekend and so I went in a whipped him up some and thought I would share this with you.
Homemade Bread – Not Gluten Free
7 to 8 Cups - All Purpose flour
2 Packets - Instant Yeast
2 Cups - Butter Milk – remember you can make your own by adding vinegar
¼ Cup - Stevia – you can use regular
1/3 Cup - Coconut Oil
1 ½ Teaspoon - Sea Salt
2 – Eggs
Mix 3 cups of flour and yeast together in a large bowl and set aside. In a small pot heat milk, sugar, salt and coconut oil until its warm (like the warmth of drinking a cup of tea). Add milk mixture to flour and yeast mixture along with eggs and blend with a hand mixture for about 3 minutes.
With wooden spoon mix in rest of flour. Put some flour on your working surface and put the dough on it and knead. You will need to keep adding a few sprinkles of flour as you knead, it will keep dough from sticking. Knead for about 6 to 8 minutes. Place dough into a large greased bowl and cover with a warm wet cloth. Set in a warm dry place and let rise for 1 hour.
Punch dough in the middle and separate into 2 balls and let set for a few minutes. Place each ball into a greased bread pan and let rise for an additional 45 minutes. Then bake at 350 degrees 30 minutes or until golden brown on the top. You may need to cover in tinfoil after 25 minutes of baking. Bread is done when you tap the top and it sounds hollow.
3 – Tablespoons of Butter at room temperature
1 – Tablespoon of Fresh Raw Honey – we use local, it’s so much better for you
Whip with a fork or whisk and apply to hot out of the oven bread. Sorry, didn't get a picture of the honey butter. Will next time I make it.
