Honey Sweetened Homemade bread

Fresh bread

Mmmm just the thought of eating a slice of warm homemade bread that’s fresh out the oven. Smear a slice with a little bit of butter, honey (or jam).. oo it makes me want to get baking!

Choosing to eat homemade food is revolutionary for your health. This is due to knowing exactly what ingredients you are putting into making your bread and ultimately putting into your body. No nasty preservatives or additives in sight!

I love using stoneground flour as it’s less processed than other flours and as a result, it contains more nutrients and fibre. I also feel it just makes everything taste that much yummier! Check out our homemade bread recipe below:

home made bread and Jam

Brown honey bread Recipe:

  • 500grams Eureka Mills Brown Bread Flour (or 4 cups flour)
  • 10ml salt
  • 1/3rd cup raw unpasteurised honey
  • 300ml warm water
  • 10g Instant yeast
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • Pinch of Rosemary
  • Pinch of Organum
kneeding dough


  • Mix the flour with the yeast and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the 2 tablespoons of Olive Oil and rub it into the flour.
  • Add the herbs and mix.
  • Pour in half the water with the honey and mix with a fork, add the rest of the water.
  • Work the dough to form a ball and knead the dough on a flat surface for 8 to 10 minutes. The dough should be sticky but NOT sticking to your fingers. Add some extra flour if you need too.
  • Roll the dough into a ball and place in a bowl and cover it with a damp cloth. Place the bowl in a warm area for 1 hour to let the dough rise. Once the dough has doubled in size gently punch out the air bubbles. Don’t overwork the dough here as too much handling can impact the softness of the bread. Kneading the dough 3 or 4 times is perfect.
  • Let the dough rest for another 15 minutes. Then shape the bread into your bread tin, let it rest for another 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius and bake the loaf for 30 minutes (keep an eye on the bread as all ovens vary with their cooking time) when the bread is beautifully brown poke it with a sharp knife to ensure it comes out clean signaling that it’s cooked.

Let it cool for, oh a second, before cutting a slice and slathering it with grass-fed butter and some raw honey!!

Keep in mind that…

This is fresh homemade bread made with natural ingredients. So, if you’re not going to polish off the entire loaf in 2 days (SO easy to do). Cut it into slices and freeze it. This means that you’ve got some delish bread ready and waiting to be popped into the toaster when you need it!
