TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 25 min. + cooling YIELD:16 servings


  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon caraway seeds
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 to 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour


  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk. Add honey; let stand for 5 minutes. Add the butter, egg, caraway seeds, salt, celery seed, sage, nutmeg and 1 cup flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • 2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 3. Punch dough down. Place in a greased 9x5-in. loaf pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 40 minutes.
  • 4. Bake at 375° for 22-27 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Yield: 1 loaf (16 slices).
