1 lbs (0.5 kg) of honey
1 tsp of ground cinnamon
1 tsp of ground ginger
1 tsp of allspice
1/2 tsp of ground cloves
1/2 tsp of ground nutmeg
1/2 cup of olive oil
4 tsp of baking soda
2 cups of beer
2 cups of sugar
4 cups of flour
1/2 tsp of salt
About 2 cups of raisins, glazed orange peel, and/or any of your favorite dried fruit mix, diced
In a large pot, mix honey, spices, olive oil, beer, and sugar. Cook on medium heat, occasionally stirring, until it comes to a boil.
Set aside to cool.
Mix the eggs, flour, salt, and baking soda together and combine with the cooked mixture.
Add the dried fruit.
Mix everything well.
Spray bread pans with a little bit of grease to prevent the bread from sticking. Pour the mixture into the bread pans.
Bake for 40-50 min at 350 degrees
*I made four honey breads from this recipe.
Honey bread is a delicious treat for winter time. I like to have it with some warm tea on these cold winter evenings. I tend to make it around Christmas time, but its flavors fit all of the winter season perfectly.
