Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. Dissolve the yeast in a large bowl in warm water.
  3. Stir in honey, oil, salt, nutmeg, and 2 cups of the flour. Beat until very smooth, about 1 minute. Gradually add enough of the remaining flour to make a stiff dough.
  4. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth, about 5 minutes.
  5. Place in a greased bowl, cover, and let rise in a warm place until about double in size, about 50 minutes. Punch down on dough.
  6. Press dough into greased jelly roll plan (about 15x10x1-inch). Cut dough into about 2½-inch squares with a sharp knife, cutting two-thirds of the way through the dough. Cover and let rise until double in size, about 30 minutes.
  7. Dissolve the instant coffee in the milk and brush over the dough. Bake until the bread is golden brown, about 35 minutes.
