Is there anything better than the smell of fresh bread wafting through the house as it bakes? Um, finally getting to eat it (naturally). Make this simple recipe for honey-wheat bread, and once the loaf comes out of the oven, try topping a slice (or three) with Smucker’s new Fruit & Honey Triple Berry Fruit Spread. This mix of blueberries, blackberries, strawberries and natural honey will make your breakfast or snack that much sweeter.

Makes 1 loaf
Start to Finish: 2 hours 30 minutes (includes rising and baking time)

Ingredients

¾ cup milk

¼ cup honey

2½ cups all-purpose flour

1½ cups whole-wheat flour

1 tablespoon salt

1 tablespoon instant dry yeast

6 tablespoons butter, melted and divided

1 jar Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Triple Berry Fruit Spread, for serving

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Grease a loaf pan with nonstick spray.

2. In a small pot, heat the milk, honey and ½ cup water over low heat until it’s warm to the touch (or reads 100°F on a thermometer).

3. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment, mix the all-purpose flour with the whole-wheat flour, salt and yeast on low speed to combine.

4. Add the warm milk mixture as well as 4 tablespoons of the melted butter to the dry ingredients. Mix on low speed until the dough comes together, 4 minutes. Mix on medium speed until the dough is smooth and pulls away from the bowl, 3 minutes more.

5. Form the dough into a log the same length as the loaf pan. Place the dough into the prepared loaf pan. Cover with a damp towel and let rise until it doubles in size, 1 hour.

6. Brush the bread with the remaining melted butter and bake until golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool completely before slicing and serving with Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Triple Berry Fruit Spread.
