    Yummy!! Easy, tasty and not overly sweet. Great for sandwiches or to just eat plain. I've always liked sweet things, so for some people you may want to use a little less honey. This is my new fav!!

      In a small measuring cup, sprinkle yeast over lukewarm water. Let stand for 3 minutes, then stir to dissolve yeast. Set bowl in warm place for five minutes.

      Combine egg, honey, coriander, cinnamon, cloves, and salt in a deep bowl, mixing with a whisk. Add yeast mixture, milk, and 4 Tblsp. of melted butter, mixing well. Stir in flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until mixture forms a stiff dough.
    3. 3
      Knead on a lightly floured surface for about five minutes, until smooth and elastic. Shape into bowl coated with butter. Cover with towel and allow to rise until doubled in bulk, about an hour.
    4. 4
      After dough has risen, spread remaining butter over a 2 quart souffle dish or other 3 quart dish at least 3 inches deep. Punch dough down, knead again for another 2-3 minutes, shape into a round loaf and place it in dish to cover.

      Yum! I made these into rolls. I divided into 12 rolls & put in a greased 9 x 13. Next time I think I would maybe try 18 rolls as they were quite big.

      This turned out beautifully, but I think I would up the salt a bit next time--unless I misread it while mixing the ingredients. 1.5 t salt to 4 cups flour seems about right. Anyway, our household enjoyed this bread--from cinnamon toast in the morning to sanwiches at noon....
