I love this honey whole wheat bread, it is defiantly my go to bread when I want to make a quick loaf. It’s healthy, slightly sweet from the honey and holds up well to a large sandwich. My favorite thing about this bread though is that it is only 6 ingredients, ingredients I usually have around the house, making it simple and easy to whip up a loaf.

Nothing beats a  juicy burger, except a juicy burger on a fresh bun. This bun is not only delicious, it holds up to an extremely succulent burger, sopping up the juices and not falling apart. These buns aren’t just limited to burgers, they are great in the morning with a fried egg, toasted with jam or just toasted with plain butter.

Oh, and in case you want to know what’s on the burger below; it’s a homemade patty, sautéed mushroom and onions in butter and olive oil, and a sauce made from plain yogurt, diced jalapeno and shallots mixed with chipotle sauce.

  • 3 1/3 cups (432 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast

Directions

  1. Combine ingredients, in order, in a bread machine. Set to the dough setting.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F, spray a cookie sheet with oil
  3. Place dough on a lightly floured surface, and knead (use flour so it doesn’t stick to your hands or the board.)
  4. Divide dough into 6 parts and roll each into a ball, use more flour if necessary so that dough is not sticky. Flatten the dough and place on baking sheet. Brush with egg whites.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown.

I love fresh bread, and I love my bread machine, because without it I would be far too lazy to bake bread. I have tried several different cinnamon raisin bread recipes and this one is my favorite. It is full of flavor, not too dense and uses only several ingredients (and in my opinion on bread, the fewer ingredients the better.)
