Dill Bread Recipe – Mother Earth News

Have you ever eaten dill bread? Maybe my dill bread recipe will make you believe.

If you look around a bit, you will come across variations of dill bread that include onions, yogurt or cottage cheese. Most produce tasty bread with a strong herbal flavor. My dill bread recipe in comparison is much simpler and, thanks to the sugar, honey and orange zest, it has a sweet and fruity accent. It is also an unleavened quick bread.

1 egg
1/4 cup oil (I use canola)
1 cup low fat buttermilk
2 tablespoons of sugar
1 tablespoon of honey
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tbsp plus 1 tsp dried dill

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Beat egg, oil, buttermilk, sugar, honey, orange zest and dill. Stir in flour and baking powder until there are no lumps. Pour into a greased standard size loaf pan. Bake for 45-50 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
