Kid Friendly Honey Bread

Easy, Kid Friendly Honey Bread Recipe

Today I’m excited to share one of our family’s favorite recipes: Kid Friendly Honey Bread. I’ve been meaning to share this on the blog for, like, years, but just never got around to it.

Yes, the recipe is called kid friendly because my kids love to eat this bread. But, more importantly, this is a super easy recipe that your kids can make with you.Honey Bear After School Snack | Five Marigolds

I tend to be intimidated by many bread recipes. In my experience, if you don’t get things *just so*, or if you don’t have a bread maker or kneading machine, the results can vary each time you make it.

Not the case with this recipe.

This honey bread turns out every. single. time.

Even better? It uses simple ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. No bread flour needed for this one.

Honey Bread Recipe

Start with 1 1/4 C. milk, warmed to 110°-115°, and dissolve one packet of active dry yeast in it.

Stir in 1/4 C. honey,  2 T. melted butter, and a dash of salt. Then, add 3 C. all purpose flour.

The dough will be sticky! Knead on a floured counter or in your mixer using a kneading attachment for around 3 minutes.

Place in a bowl, cover with a towel, and let rise in a warm place for one hour.

Punch down the dough, place in a greased bread pan, and let rise one more hour.Kid Friendly Honey Bread Recipe

Now you’re ready to bake! Place in the center rack of your oven and bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes.

The result is golden, delicious honey bread.Kid Friendly Honey Bread Recipe

We love to serve it warm, drizzled with honey (of course!).
