This bread wreath is always a stunner at dinner parties, and would make a beautiful addition to any table. It also happens to be delicious and wholesome, full of good things like buttermilk, honey, and butter.
I first came across this recipe in Jeff Hertzberg and Zoe Francois’ Artisan Bread in Five Minutes A Day. The wreath is created by forming the dough into a ring and then cutting it with a pair of kitchen scissors at a sharp angle. It is super easy and makes for an impressive presentation. For a great step-by-step visual of how to do this, check out their post here.
You can use this wreath technique using any dough recipe, but my favorite is this easy Whole Wheat Honey Rolls recipe. This wholesome bread bakes up tender and soft. The best part of this bread though is the honey butter that you should make to go with it. Honey butter is actually the real party trick here. It is dead simple – literally, you just mix together softened butter and honey – but the result is pure, homey, bliss.
Enjoy this bread wreath, friends! Pass it around while it’s still warm, let people rip a hunk off for themselves, and don’t forget to slather it in honey butter goodness.
