After the birth of MJ many kind friends brought me meals during my recovery. I’m convinced that all of the yummy food had something to do with my speedy return to normal. My friend Tali brought me two meals (I owe ya, girl!) and with it came the most delicious homemade white bread. It has since become a staple here at the Bradshaw house. Over Thanksgiving Nicole found a recipe for some Honey Cinnamon Butter- the perfect complement to Tali’s bread. I gave this bread and butter pair to some friends for Christmas this year while of course making some extra for us. I’m sending the recipes on to y’all today. If you have time, I would recommend sneaking some in to your Christmas dinner.
Tali’s Bread (She never gave me a name so that’s what we call it around here.)
6-7 ounces of milk (a little under a cup)
1/4 cup warm water
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp salt
3 tbsp sugar
3 1/4 cup bread flour
2 tsp active dry yeast
Put wet ingredients in bread machine first with salt and sugar. Add flour and yeast. Run on dough setting and take out BEFORE it bakes in machine. Bake about 25-35 minutes at 335* until the top is light brown and hard.
Paula Deen’s Cinnamon Honey Butter
½ cup (1 stick) butter, softened
2 tablespoons honey
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Combine the ingredients in a small bowl. Pack into a small crock or baby food jar with a decorative lid. Or roll in waxed paper into a log and twist the ends. Chill thoroughly. Wrap in colorful paper.
