  • Place on a greased cookie tray and let rise about 30 minutes. Bake at 400 until slightly browned 12-15 minutes. If you make a loaf it will need to cook longer to get the inside of the loaf warm enough to cook. One recipe makes approximately 12- 15 buns when using a large canning ring. Without any preservatives this bread will mold quickly if not kept refrigerated and or used quickly.
  • *1/3 cup powdered milk can be added to 1 cup water to make the equivalent of 1 cup milk.
  • Options: Use the flour of choice for your dietary needs. Note the consistency and properties of your flour. For example, whole wheat flour absorbs more liquid so less flour will be needed for this recipe. For a dairy free recipe simply omit the milk or use a dairy substitute. For a higher protein content use 2 eggs in place of 1/2 cup water and add more dry powdered milk. Sugar, molasses, or agave nectar may be used in place of the honey.
