Butter Bread – The most delicious bread! Perfect to put with salads, soups and chilies

You know those recipes that you try once and keep going back to for years and years? This is one of those for us! We found this recipe in a favorite cookbook almost 20 years ago and fell in love! What’s better than butter?! We’ve adapted it to be whole wheat and no sugar so there is no guilt involved either. The texture is similar to cornbread and the butter leaves a beautiful brown crust that is crunchy and full of butter flavor. It’s insanely fast and easy and would be the perfect addition to any meal (or our favorite) salad!

Put this next to a Cabbage Quinoa Winter Salad, Clean and Comforting Chicken Chowder, Forbidden Rice and Veggie Salad or Wilted Winter Salad and you are ready to go!

Butter Bread

  • ½ cup butter
  • 3 ½ cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 Tbs. honey
  • 2 Tbs. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups milk

Melt butter in a 9×13 pan in a 425º oven. Combine all other ingredients in a mixing bowl until just combined. Pour into the 9×13 pan. It’s a very sticky dough/batter. Press into the pan and smooth the top down with your fingers. Some of the butter will come up onto the top of the dough/batter, this is just fine. Bake until golden brown (about 25-30 minutes).
