Ethiopian Spiced Honey Bread


Okay friends…here is the recipe!!


As much as I would like to be---I am not an organized, take beautiful pictures baker. I feel a HUGE accomplishment to even bake!!




Yemarina Yewotet Dabo

(Ethiopian Spiced Honey Bread)

1 package of yeast, active dry

1/4 c lukewarm water

1 egg

1/3 cup honey

1 Tbsp. ground coriander seed

1/4 tsp. ground cloves

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp salt

1 cup lukewarm milk

6 Tbsp butter melted

4-5 cups flour, all purpose

In a small bowl, sprinkle yeast over warm water. Let stand for 3 minutes, then stir to dissolve. Set the bowl in a warm place for about 5 minutes; mixture should double in volume. If it does not, repeat procedure.

Combine the egg, honey, coriander, cinnamon, cloves, and salt in a deep bowl, mixing until smooth. Add the yeast mixture, milk , and 5 tbsp of melted butter. Beat until well blended. Stir in the flour 1/2 cup at a time, until becomes to stiff to stir.

On a lightly floured board, knead the dough, adding a small amount of flour when necessary to keep from sticking. Knead for about 5 minutes. Place dough in a large, greased bowl. Cover with a damp cloth and let sit in warm place for about 1 1/2 hours.

Grease a cookie sheet with remaining butter. Punch down bread and knead it again for a few minutes. Shape dough into a round or a braid and place on sheet. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Let bread rise again while oven is preheating. Bake bread for 1 hour or until the top is crusty and light golden brown.


I found this recipe somewhere but have no idea where now It is a good one!
