This recipe was given to me more than 15 years ago by a friend. The unique combination of sage, celery seed and nutmeg makes this bread deliciously different.

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 3/4 cup warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 2 teaspoons celery seed
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 egg
  • 3 to 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Directions

In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, sugar, shortening, celery seed, salt, sage, nutmeg, egg and 2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. 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 1-1/2 hours. Punch dough down. Shape into a round loaf. Place in a greased 8-in. or 9-in. pie plate. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake at 400° for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pie plate to a wire rack to cool. Yield: 1 loaf.

"Am particularly fond of the herb, sage. Kinda stumbled upon this recipe. As a Type I iabetic, must limit carbohydrates, so was pleased to see only 20 carbs per slice. Generally 1 carb is 15 mg., accarding to ADA. Will definitelymake soon. Thank you for sharing!"
