Millie's Wheat & Honey Bread Loaf and Giveaway Offer

Before my surgery, I knew I would be out of the kitchen for a I baked and cooked up a storm of dishes. My freezer is packed for at least the next 3 months and since I can't cook yet I have been eating a lot of it. Not good, but I will go back to my diet this next Monday. I baked this wheat & honey loaf the week before my surgery and it is so delicious I needed to share it with everyone. Unfortunately I can't stop eating it. It is made with honey and whole wheat flour.

 I will soon be changing all of my meals that require flour to gluten free white & wheat flour because I am experiencing abdominal pains every time I eat regular white or wheat flour.

 Here is my Wheat & Honey Bread Loaf. Enjoy it!

3 c. wheat flour
1/2 c. honey
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. sugar
2 fast rise yeast packets
1/2 c. shortening
hot water

In a cup or glass pour your 2 yeast strips with 1 cup of hot water, mix well and set aside. In a large mixing bowl pour your wheat flour, salt & sugar...mix well. to this mix add your shortening then add the yeast mix. Mix well and as you mix slowly your dough add some hot water to it until the dough has a nice bread dough consistency. Knead the dough on your countertop...adding more flour to your dough as you knead it until the dough is no longer sticky. Knead for about 5 to 8 minutes. Then place the dough inside your mixing bowl and cover it with a clean towel for 1 hour to rise. The an hour later remove your dough slowly off the bowl and knead again on your countertop with a little more flour for about another 5 more minutes. Spray your bread loaf pan with a non stick spray and arrange your bread loaf just like the photo below. With a knife split the center of the bread loaf and pour your honey. 

Bake for 50 minutes to an hour at 360 degrees. Then remove the bread from the loaf pan as soon as possible to prevent burning the edges of the bread loaf. It is delicious with non dairy butter as soon as it comes out of the oven 

Here are some more breads I made with the same recipe but without the honey.

  1. Mmm-mm! Homemade bread again! I've never heard of yeast strips, just packets, so that's new to me. Hope you recover quickly.

  2. yeast strips is when 3 packets are attached together, that's how we call it in Ohio. I am fine, recovering well. But i had lots of deep bone pains on my rotator cuff last night. hope everything is well. GOD BLESS.

  3. That bread looks wonderful Millie.

    Thank you for blogging about the giveaway.

    Keeping you in my prayers. xoxo
