Honey Wheat Bread

 I haven't made bread in ages! I have this thing about not doing (knitting, picking out fabric, you get it) or eating my favorite things while I have morning sickness. If I smell something in my house all day while feeling sick ALL DAY, I'm the kind of girl who NEVER wants to smell that smell again. So last week I broke out the bread pans! The kids thought that they were in heaven! Poor babies, they had been so deprived of homemade bread that they ate a whole loaf before it cooled completely! I made my special honey butter too. (The picture above was at breakfast the next morning.) Boy does it feel good to be back in my routine a little more! The kids took some bread and honey butter to my neighbor and she called back saying "Teach me!", so I did. That afternoon she came over and left a few hours later with two loaves of bread and a batch of honey butter. We had a good time!

 I typed up my recipe (a jumble of other recipes that has changed over time and is now just right for us) and it's available for free download HERE. I could have typed it out here, but in PDF it just prints out so much nicer than trying to print a blog post. My honey butter is so easy you are probably going to remember it! So here it is...

Honey Butter:
1 stick of softened butter
1/4 cup of honey (you can add more or less to taste)
1/2 a capful of vanilla

Mix it well, coat a piece of homemade bread with it, enjoy that little piece of Heaven, cover it, and pop it in the fridge. If you need a change down the road, add a little cinnamon. You won't regret it! :)


Well, now I'm going to do some laundry before it starts taking over my entire house! xo, Sam

Wonderful! I love it with the cinnamon. My friend makes it every Christmas, but I never knew how - now I can enjoy honey butter year round! :D

That sounds devine--I am absolutely baking bread tomorrow! (and blogging about it) Thank you, dearest, for the lovely honey butter recipe. Hope you feel better too! Hugs. --Sandy at EatWriteDreamStitch.blogspot.com

Oh yum!! I am working on finding a good gluten free bread recipe because I miss good bread so much.

It looks divine but I bet it smells even better. I'm just grateful we can't smell things over the internet yet or I'd really be putting on more weight! xx Susan

I think this was a great combination. After getting tired of sewing the whole day, it is relaxing if we had our favorite snack like this.

I've got my ingredients ready! How do you slice it so perfectly, and what is the best way to keep it fresh (other than eat it all in one day!)?
