Honey Bread



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

4 eggs

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.

Enjoy and let me know in the comments how you liked it 🙂

    Delicious looking though it looks more like a honey cake thank a honey bread. I make a Ukrainian honey cake (medivnyk) which seems similar and is delicious. Makes a great hostess gift too.

        I agree.

        PS: In case of confusion, the link is to the recipe on my old LJ although I’ve been double posting to both it and my blog for the last several years. They have the same name.
