Honey loaf tips

It’s simple to make the dough, and if you don’t have candied orange peel on hand, you can substitute a few grates of lemon zest. Instead of honey, you might try adding some finely chopped honeycomb or crushed almonds. In place of more powdered sugar, you may give the loaf a glossy sheen by brushing it with butter or warm honey as soon as it comes out of the oven. Use as a base for French toast, or eat as is.

This honey loaf is a great option if you’re a bread baker looking to expand your repertoire. Perfect for breakfast or tea time.
