This week's recipe is one which we've had in our cookbook for years, but strangely it's never been a "Recipe of the Week". Our bread recipes are always one of our cookbook's most popular categories. I hope you enjoy it and try making it.
If you want to read our previous Recipe of the Week newsletters, I have been making them available from a new page on our website. Look here!
Enjoy this Texas Cooking recipe and have a great week!

This is the easiest yeast bread you will ever make. Its texture is a bit more coarse than many yeast breads, but it is wonderfully moist, perfumes your whole house while baking, and is irresistible when warm from the oven. Also, it makes excellent toast.
- 1 cup warm milk (110°F)
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 packages of yeast (4 teaspoons)
- 1 egg (at room temperature), lightly beaten
- 1-1/2 tablespoons melted butter
- 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
- 3/4 cup very warm water
- 4-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the warm milk, yeast and honey. Stir and
let stand for 10 minutes.
Mix the egg, butter, salt and water into the milk mixture. Gradually add the flour, stirring until well blended.
Cover the bowl and allow dough to rise in a warm place until more than doubled in bulk (about 40 minutes). Stir the dough down and beat for 30 seconds.
Pile the dough into a greased bowl (a 1-1/2 quart Pyrex casserole dish will give you a nice, round loaf). Bake for about 50 minutes. Brush melted butter on the top of the loaf when it's just out of the oven.
The serving dishes in our photograph are Fiesta dinnerware.
