Milk N Honey Bread Recipe

"When you cut into this wholesome-tasting bread, you can hardly believe it's not a yeast bread," assures Wendy Skipper of Cornelius, Oregon. "It's best warm from the oven...however, leftovers are also great toasted the next day."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 1 hour + cooling YIELD:16 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup toasted wheat germ
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted, optional
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

  • 1. In a saucepan or microwave-safe bowl, combine milk, honey and butter. Heat just until the butter is melted. Cool for 10 minutes. In a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; stir in milk mixture just until combined. Pour into a greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan. Bake at 325° for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm. Yield: 1 loaf (16 slices).
