A buttery, moist mini-bread made especially to celebrate the Resurrection of our Savior, however it tastes great whatever day of the year you decide to make it. ;-)
3 1/2 - 4cwhite spelt flour
Mix yeast with warm water in separate bowl and set aside.
Add first 5 ingredients to your Kitchen Aid bowl or regular mixing bowl.
Using the cookie dough attachment (or beaters) mix together for a minute until constituted.
Dough will be stiff. Roll on a floured counter until manageable.
Cut into equal fours (for mini loaf pans) or in half (for 8x4 loaf pans).
Place in a warm oven and let raise for several hours. I set my timer for one hour, then in 30 minute increments thereafter until ready.
Bake at 275* for 30-45 minutes, checking every 5 minutes after the first 30. Tops will brown fast!
Remove from pans immediately and cool on a towel or baking rack.
Enjoy with butter warm or cold. :)
I think next time I will try changing the butter/oil amounts to 3 tbsp. of each. This bread was only ever so slightly dry. Butter in bread dries it out while oil holds the moisture. This is a keeper either way!
