Honey Milk Bread (for the very first time)

Some bread everybody?

I was actually planning to make white toast,
However, after finding out it might take hours to do so,
You know, all that kneading and waiting for the dough to get "puffed,"
Hmm, maybe we'll save that for later,
Let's start out with something easy first yep?

Honey milk bread!

Ingredients (for 1 loaf)?

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup of granulated sugar
3 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt

1 cup of 2% milk
1/2 cup of amber honey
4 tablespoons of melted butter
1 large egg


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Take a loaf pan, brush with some melted butter and coat it evenly with flour.

Sift all the dry ingredients and set aside.
For the wet ingredients,
Pour both the honey and milk into a sauce pan,
Turn to medium low heat,
Gently stir the mixture till the ingredients are fully dissolved,
Once that's done, pour in the remaining melted butter and keep stirring.

Remove the sauce pan from heat,
I actually just poured it into the container used for my mixer,
Once it's cooled down a little bit, add in the egg and mix well, about 1 minute.

Now let's add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients,
Do it in two batches,
Pour in half of the dry ingredients while mixing slowly at the same time,
Once combined well, pour in the remaining half and keep mixing.

That's it,
Slowly pour the mixture into the loaf pan, 
About one hour or so, depending on the size of the loaf pan,
Or you can tell by sticking a toothpick in,
If it comes out clean, it's done!

Judging by my pictures,
My first try ain't that bad yep?
(Somehow it looks like meat loaf to me!)

Simply heat it up and spread some butter all over it before serving,

Cindy's Rating: 6 or 7? (still room for improvements!)


  1. This bread looks dense. I tried similar milk bread before - the texture was like chiffon cake.

  2. To Tigerfish~
    Yeah it is pretty dense,
    Next time maybe I'll use yeast or try bread flour for bread recipes, newbies here!

  3. I think this looks yummy! And I like how it doesn't need yeast.

  4. To Kirbie~
    Yeah, I never used yeast before (kinda troublesome).
    But I gonna try yeast recipe in the future, hope it'll turn out good!

  5. looks like cake!
    i made alot of cakes when i was at high school, so i wont get mixed up in a life of crime.
    had a mate who thought that way too. he's sellin cocaine at a private school now, i heard. :D
    never mind, it looks delicious!

  6. this looks great and not time consuming at all!

  7. this and a glass of milk would really rock!

  8. To A Funky Place~
    Ha I would prefer cakes too! Only side effect is that it'll make you "wider!"

    To Peggy~
    Yeah the preparation steps are really easy. I like it when I don't have to use yeast!

    To Cookie Chomper~
    Ha so very true!
