Whole Wheat Honey Bread

Hi there, dears! I hope your holidays were as delightful as mine!

*****

Confession: I thought I’d never try a how-to video again, but I did.

My sis-in-law was asking for a tutorial post on bread-making and I said—“Oh my. You just have to be there.” So I created a movie for her, in lieu of countless pictures and thousands of words.

This 12-minute video will teach you to make Whole Wheat Honey Bread {printable recipe here} from start to finish, alongside a few general tips for working with yeast. I’m not a professional, and probably mistaken in a few minor points, but I refuse to be held responsible for accidents. Yours or mine.

My husband and I filmed this a year and a half ago, when I had braces, smaller glasses over which I barely peered, and stage fright, as evidenced in my sober opening and rapid flow of words. But various technical difficulties and staff shortages pushed off our production date, and here we are.

(Not that I don’t have stage fright still.)

So. If you’re interested in bread baking, enjoy! There’s comic relief along the way in the form of children and animals, and a formidable string of bloopers clipped onto the end. This is real life in my kitchen. Stay tuned.

Any questions or corrections, please share them below.

Just for Kim Zook, a most loved sis-in-law.

I have my fingers in many pies at the moment, and so my blogging is going to turn a temporary corner. For the next four to six weeks I plan to post more simply… a picture, a thought, a quote, or a question for discussion. You are free to liven things up as much as you wish; I’m still here and still listening. Just very busy wearing other hats.
