This recipe was submitted by one of our customers and it has been loved by many. If you like buttermilk then this is a recipe you should try!
It is very important that you use bread flour. Do not use all-purpose flour for this recipe. You can substitute almost any sweetener for the sugar such as honey or brown sugar at a 1:1 ratio. The Saf-Instant Premium Yeast and the Liquid Soy Lecithin can be purchased in the Homemade Bread Bundle or the Homemade Pizza Bundle.
FYI: Warm buttermilk will appear curdled.
Step by Step Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and mix dry ingredients. (yeast is a dry ingredient)
To avoid a mess, make 2 dimples in dry ingredients with tsp. Squeeze the lecithin into the bottom of the dimples about the size of a quarter. Add honey and mix.
While mixing add the buttermilk and butter. Beat until smooth. Gradually stir in enough remaining flour or water to make a soft dough smooth and elastic.
Place on a greased surface, turning once to grease top. Divide into thirds. Divide each portion into thirds; shape each into a 12-in. rope. Braid three ropes; pinch ends to seal and tuck under. Place in a greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan. Repeat with remaining dough.
Cover and let rise until doubled, about 20-25 minutes.
Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks. Yield: 3 loaves (12 slices each).
