Honey Drizzled Orange Bread!

An easy sweet bread that is good to go with tea or coffee or as snacks.

Prep Time: 3 hours and 15 mins

Baking Time: 45 minutes

Servings: 12 pieces


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 packet instant yeast (2 ¼ teaspoons)

  • 3 tablespoons sugar

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 cup melted butter

  • 1 cup warm milk

  • 1 egg

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 cup orange wedges (take the fresh ones or the canned ones)


  • Combine warm milk, instant yeast, and sugar in a large bowl and leave it for 5 mins.

  • Add salt, melted butter, one egg, and the milk and yeast mixer to the flour and use a wooden spoon to mix well. You could use an electric stand mixer to mix it.

  • Make a slightly sticky dough.

  • Drizzle little oil into another large bowl.

  • Make the dough into a round ball and transfer it to the greased bowl with your hand.

  • Then cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and place it in a warm place.

  • Allow dough to rise for 2 hours or until the dough is doubled in size.

  • After 2 hours, when the dough has risen, use your hands to gently deflate it and transfer it to a lightly floured surface.

  • Knead the dough for 2 to 3 mins or until it turns into a smooth ball.

  • Then roll it with a rolling pin.

  • Grease a baking tray lightly and put the flat dough into it.

  • I used canned oranges for this recipe.

  • Drain the water and separate the orange wedges.

  • Then put all the orange wedges on top of the dough and let it rise a second time for 1 hour.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees C.

  • Bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown.

  • Please take out the dread from the oven and let it cool down a little.

  • Spread honey over the orange bread and enjoy!
