This bread is perfect, full of flavor and just enough sweetness. It has the perfect touch of honey and my family cannot get enough. Eat alone, with butter or better yet make me a sandwich....errrr I mean make your self a sandwich! Please excuse me, I am hungry.
1 Packet of yeast
1/4 Teaspoon powder ginger
1 Teaspoon Sugar
1/4 Cup Warm Water
2 Cups Buttermilk
1/3 Cup Honey
3/4 Teaspoons Baking soda
6 Cups Flour
1/4 Cup Butter *melted*
Preheat your oven to 400*
Mix yeast, ginger, sugar and warm water, mix and let sit for 5 minutes.
In the mean time Wisk buttermilk, honey, salt and baking soda in different bowl and add to the yeast mixture.
Add 3 cups of flour (one at a time) and mix until smooth, add in your melted butter and add in the rest of the flour. Mix until dough is pulling from the sides of the bowl.
Take out and knead for 5 minutes. Place in greased bowl in warm place and cover for 1 1/2 hours.
Punch down into two loafs, grease and cover loaf pans for 45 minutes.
Bake for 3 minutes (if you fear the top getting to brown cover with foil)
