Fast Homemade Honey Buttermilk Bread

A very popular post here at CookiesCakesPiesOhMy is One Hour Homemade Bread. I wanted to call this Honey Buttermilk Bread “one hour” but it takes longer, about an hour and a half. But, that is not a long wait for the end product of freshly baked bread.

Fast Honey Buttermilk Bread

5¼ cups flour
2 pkt (4½ tsp) dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water (about 110°)
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 with towel.  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).  Makes 2 loaves.

Breads, Yeast Breads

French Bread

You gotta love homemade french bread right from the oven.  Chewy crust and tender inside, so good for dinner.  It’s not hard to make, just the wait time to rise.  Start at 3:30 and it is ready by 6:00 with lots of time to do other things while it rises.

                       

1¼ cups warm water (110°)
1½ tsp dry yeast
2 tsp sugar
3½ cups bread flour
1 tsp salt

In bowl of mixer, pour warm water, sprinkle yeast over water, and sprinkle sugar over yeast.  Add flour and salt, mix and knead.  Turn dough out into greased bowl, turn over to coat, cover and let rise 1 hour.  Punch down, divided in half.  Roll out each half to 6″x12″ then roll up, pinch seam and ends.  Put on cornmeal covered silpat, baking sheet, or Demarle Silform Bread Tray on perforated sheet.  Cover and let rise about 30 minutes.  Make 3 slice marks across both loaves with bread knife.  Brush with beaten egg or heavy cream.  Bake in preheated 375° oven for 20-25 minutes.
