  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons (1 packet) active dry yeast
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted


  1. Warm the milk: In a small saucepan, heat the milk over low heat until it’s warm but not boiling. Remove from heat and stir in the honey until it dissolves.
  2. Activate the yeast: In a large mixing bowl, sprinkle the yeast over the warm milk mixture. Let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until the yeast becomes frothy.
  3. Mix the dough: Add the flour and salt to the yeast mixture. Stir until a shaggy dough forms. Then, transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead for about 5-7 minutes until the dough becomes smooth and elastic.
  4. First rise: Grease a large bowl with oil or butter and place the dough inside. Cover the bowl with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap and let it rise in a warm, draft-free place for about 1-2 hours, or until doubled in size.
  5. Shape the dough: Punch down the risen dough and transfer it to a lightly floured surface. Shape it into a loaf and place it in a greased loaf pan.
  6. Second rise: Cover the loaf pan with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap and let it rise for another 30-45 minutes, or until it puffs up and fills the pan.
  7. Preheat the oven: About 15 minutes before the dough is done rising, preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  8. Bake: Once the dough has finished rising, brush the top with melted butter. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until the bread is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.
  9. Cool and serve: Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely. Slice and serve with butter or your favorite toppings.
