Author Tiffany H

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 c raw honey or maple syrup, or maple sugar
  • 3 tbsp butter softened
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 c water (105-115 degrees)
  • 1 tbsp yeast
  • 3 1/2 - 4 c white spelt flour

Instructions

  1. Mix yeast with warm water in small bowl.
  2. Add top 5 ingredients to Kitchen Aid bowl using cookie dough beater and mix until incorporated.
  3. Add yeast mixture and 2 c. flour.
  4. Scrape down bowl and add remaining flour just until dough is manageable.
  5. Roll onto floured counter and cut into 4 equal pieces for well oiled (I used coconut oil spray) mini loaf pans or 2 for 4x8 pans.
  6. Raise in a warm oven several hours until rounded tops form.
  7. Bake at 275° for 30-45 minutes, checking every 5 minutes after the first 30. (Tops brown fast!)
  8. Remove from pans immediately and enjoy with lots of real butter. :)

Recipe Notes

Baby Boy ate five slices, and then bawled when he couldn't have more. Either I have a carb-aholic on my hands or this was a really good recipe. Or both. ;)
