  • When honey is added to bread dough, it helps protect the baked bread's moisture.
  • You can use any type of milk in this recipe: whole milk, skim, low fat, etc. Milk can also be replaced with water and nonfat dry milk.
  • Milk can be replaced with soy milk.
  • Keep yeast stored in an airtight container and in the refrigerator. Heat, moisture, and air kills the yeast and prevents bread dough from rising.
