Buttermilk and Honey Whole Wheat Bread

I was inspired by a loaf of buttermilk bread I saw on A Southern Grace’s site that looked amazing. I decided to make  a buttermilk loaf using honey & some whole wheat flour this weekend to serve with the Slow Simmered Split Pea Soup I was making for dinner. Even though I am terrified of yeast and get nervous every single time I make bread, I thought this one turned out fantastic. My daughter said that it was the best smell in the world while it was baking and I agree. It smelled amazing and tasted so delicious!

Place the warmed buttermilk, honey, butter, salt, baking soda bread flour, whole wheat flour, and yeast into a bread machine pan in that order. Turn the bread machine to the dough setting and push start.

Once the dough cycle has completed (mine lasts 1 1/2 hours).

Deflate the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Form the dough into a roll and place into a loaf pan coated with cooking spray.

Cover with a cloth and let rise, until doubled in size, about 60 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the loaf pan into the oven and bake for 40 minutes, placing a tented of foil over it for the last 20 minutes.

Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes before putting on a cooling rack to continue cooling. Slice and serve. Enjoy.
