Buttermilk and Honey Whole Wheat Bread

Buttermilk and Honey Whole Wheat Bread

I was inspired by a loaf of buttermilk bread I saw on A Southern Grace’s site that looked amazing. I decided to make a buttermilk loaf using honey & some whole wheat flour this weekend to serve with the Slow Simmered Split Pea Soup I was making for dinner. Even though I am terrified of yeast and get nervous every single time I make bread, I thought this one turned out fantastic. My daughter said that it was the best smell in the world while it was baking and I agree. It smelled amazing and tasted so delicious!

How to Make Buttermilk and Honey Whole Wheat Bread

Place the warmed buttermilk, honey, butter, salt, baking soda bread flour, whole wheat flour, and yeast into a bread machine pan in that order. Turn the bread machine to the dough setting and push start.

Once the dough cycle has been completed (mine lasts 1 1/2 hours).

Deflate the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Form the dough into a roll and place it into a loaf pan coated with cooking spray.

Cover with a cloth and let rise, until doubled in size, about 60 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the loaf pan into the oven and bake for 40 minutes, placing a tent of foil over it for the last 20 minutes.

Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes before putting on a cooling rack to continue cooling. Slice and serve. Enjoy.

  1. I have been making bread in the bread maker now for a few months…I quit buying bread at the store so I am always looking for new recipes. I usually just bake it right in the bread maker though. I guess that would work with this….I will give it try, thanks!

  2. Homemade bread is so yummy but I rarely have the energy to make it myself…but I think my mother-in-law is gonna give us her bread maker soon so that will def change in the near future πŸ™‚ Your loaf came out perfectly!

  3. Dear Pam.
    This bread looks so fabulous that Im taking the recipe to give it a go.
    Cheers and thanks for sharing your amazing recipes.
    Lia.

  4. I saw this bread recipe, too, and thought it sounded great. I’m making rolls or bread almost daily, because store bought bread has too much salt in it. Who’d have thought?

  5. Heavenly Pam:) You did GREAT! (as you know, I’m a bit yeast shy too:) This bread sounds like the perfect accompaniment to that Split Pea Soup. Yum!

    Thank you so much for sharing, Pam…the aroma must have been mystifying:)

  6. Your bread looks perfect. We found a sour dough recipe that a retired neighbor taught us this year and fell in love with that. We’ve been using it for loaves, rolls, and even cinnamon rolls. We’ll have to try this one too, except we don’t have a bread machine….yet.
