Making bread in your bread machine couldn't be easier.

While I do enjoy the luxury of spending an afternoon making bread by hand, I have to say my bread machine is a lifesaver for when I can't devote several hours to bread making.

This honey spice egg bread is light and airy, with just a hint of sweetness and spice. It's based on a basic egg bread to which I have added some of my favorite spices. It has become my go-to bread recipe.

We love this bread on weekends in the morning, but also served alongside pasta at dinnertime.

Just a little bit sweet, it's not really a dessert bread as such.  

If you don't use a bread machine, you can add the honey and spices to your favorite white or egg bread recipe for similar results.
