Easy Honey Bread with Rosemary and Thyme

FullSizeRender 2

This recipe was adapted from Sweet Paul. I used the same general base with slight changes in flavoring


  • 3.5 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1 cups of warm water + 1/2 cup
  • 1 packet of instant yeast
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp of olive oils (and a bit more for applying on top of bread)
  • 1 tsp of rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • flaky sea salt to sprinkle


  1. Mix together: yeast, honey and 1/2 cup warm water in a large bowl. Leave it alone for 5 minutes. I should get frothy, if it doesn’t that means the yeast is dead. That also means you will have to start again
  2. Add 1 cup of water, flour, 2 tbsp olive oil and 1 tsp regular salt and mix until you have smooth dough without flour pockets
  3. Cover the bowl with plastic and let it rise for 40-60min
  4. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  5. If you want 2 smaller loaves, divide the dough into 2 parts and place in bread baking dishes
  6. *** here you can do a couple of different things. You can either brush the bread with olive oil or with some egg. The egg creates a slightly crisper crust. Its up to you
  7. Once you brushed the top of the bread, sprinkle some rosemary, thyme and course sea salt on top
  8. Bake until the bread is golden ~ 18-22 minutes depending on your oven
  9. Cool a bit after, then serve
  10. Enjoy!

Side note: The butter in the photo was also home made, see my next post on how to do this. You won’t be sorry!
