Bread Machine: Milk and Honey Bread

Soft interior, perfect for sandwiches. With a light crunchy bottom crust and a hint of sweetness, this bread is simply delicious. It is a simple loaf with only 6 ingredients, I do recommend whole milk for best results.

Milk and Honey Bread


  • 1 cup + 1 Tbsp milk
  • 3 Tbsp melted unsalted butter
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • 1½ tsp fine sea salt
  • 390 grams all-purpose or bread flour
  • 2 tsp dry yeast


Zojirushi bread machines warm the ingredients for you, with other brands of bread machines use warmed liquid instead, at the temperature called for, and stack the ingredients as called for in the manual.

Add ingredients in order listed. Set loaf for standard white bread, medium crust.

Check during the first kneading cycle, to make sure everything is mixing.

Remove after baking, let cool on a rack.

Once fully cooled, store in a sealed bread bag, and use within 2 days for best results. This slices well for freezing. We take out slices at night, put in a sandwich box, and let thaw in the refrigerator overnight for sandwiches.

Makes a 1½ pound loaf.
