Sweet Butter Loaf

A Simple recipe for Sweet Butter Bread. #bread #baking #recipes #butter #homemade

When I was growing up my ultimate breakfasts or a snack was butter and honey spread on homemade bread. It is rather a sweet memory of weekends that I would spend at my grandma’s house, especially in the winter time. I can still smell the freshly baked bread or biscuits that she would pull out of the old-fashioned wood-burning oven just in time for our breakfast; the aroma of warmth, happiness and comfort is still very much alive in me.

Now that I have my own kids I cannot help but have a smile on my face when they inhale the aroma of freshly baked butter loaf. I look at those happy faces and have happy thoughts going through my head. Yes! The cycle continues, and now I am making those memories for my kids. They will grow up just like me and the warm pleasant smell of homemade butter bread will remind them of their childhood, too.
Today, we are using LAND O LAKES® Butter with Canola Oil. Just in case if you didn’t know, LAND O LAKES® Butter with Canola Oil is made with only 3 ingredients: sweet cream, canola oil, and salt. Compared to other brands, I think that is pretty amazing — don’t you agree?
Another thing is that you can spread it right out of the fridge. My kids absolutely love making quick sandwiches or spreading it on warm baked goodies in the morning for their breakfast before school. There is something about LAND O LAKES® Butter with Canola Oil mixed with organic honey or a jam on a warm bread. It is a harmonious balance between savory and sweet, it almost hugs your belly with every bite.

Besides baked goodies, I love using it in mashed potatoes which gives more creaminess, with sautéed seasonal vegetables, on pancakes, or dollop on baked sweet potatoes with a drizzle of maple syrup; again, it’s that balance between savory and sweet that gives you absolutely amazing taste! I cannot wait for the fall season and roasted butternut squash because my family loves LAND O LAKES® Butter over roasted squash, or even pumpkin.

Without further ado let’s make yummy butter bread together, shall we?!

Sweet Butter Loaf 

makes 1 loaf 
  • 1 pkg rapid rise yeast + ¼ tbsp. sugar
  • ¼ cup LAND O LAKES® Butter with Canola Oil, melted
  • 5 cups bread flour. + about ½ cup for dusting
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 1 tsp. Baking powder
  • 4 tbsp. Sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1¾ cup lukewarm milk
  • ½ cup lukewarm water
  • 1 tsp. butter, for brushing
  1. Mix yeast and sugar with a little bit of warm water together, and let it get activated and bubbly; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl add all purpose flour, and mix in the flour salt, baking powder, and sugar.
  3. Make a well and add lightly mixed egg yolk, activated the yeast, melted butter and slowly pour in Luke warm milk. While you adding mix it with a wooden spoon, then start adding water.
  4. Dust with more flour and knead for 10-15 minutes, until you form a ball. The more you knead the dough becomes more elastic and easier to work with.
  5. Cover the bowl with a clean kitchen towel and let it rise for one hour. It should be doubled in size, and the dough should not stick too much to your hands.
  6. Take out the bowl, knead, and roll out in a thin disk. Make a roll, tuck in the ends and place in a non-stick loaf baking pan/ OR oil it if it’s not non-stick.
  7. Butter the loaf with a pastry brush, preheat the oven to 400°F.
  8. Allow the dough to rise one more time for at least 30 minutes before baking.
  9. Bake for 40-45 minutes. Once done take it out of the oven and then out of the baking pan. Let it cool down completely before slicing.
