Breads, Yeast Breads

Fast Honey Buttermilk Bread

This bread takes about 1½ hours to make and it is DELICIOUS! One of my favorite things is a fat end slice of homemade bread hot from the oven slathered with butter. It reminds me of my childhood, coming home from school and mom would have bread right from the oven with butter and homemade jam for an after school snack. Thanks Mom!

3 Tbl honey
1/3 cup oil
1½ tsp salt
1½ cups warm buttermilk

In bowl of mixer, add flour and yeast. Pour in warm water over yeast. Add honey, oil, salt and warm buttermilk (heat buttermilk in microwave on 50% until warm, careful not to curdle). Mix for 5 minutes. Spray counter and 2 bread pans with non-stick spray. Shape loaves, place in pans and cover. Let rise 45-60 minutes. Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes (tent with foil during baking if necessary so loaves don’t get too brown).

  1. Hi Kristen, I made this bread today — so delicious! I also realized why the Vermont Whole Wheat Honey Bread I made a few weeks ago came out so dense. I haven’t made that much bread, and I didn’t know the dough could be so smooth– I added way too much extra flour to that and it came out very dense (but very delicious and we at it all!) I followed this recipe to a ‘T’ and it came out perfect! Thanks so much! 🙂
