Dill Onion Buttermilk Bread

Recipe by Shelby Jo
READY IN: 2hrs 30mins




  • Make mound of flour directly on counter or table. Make a well in the center for the yeast. Add the other dry ingredients (onion, dill weed, and salt) around the edge. Make sure to keep salt out of the yeast.
  • Add sugar and the lukewarm water to the yeast. Proof yeast until bubbly.
  • Mix together the melted butter, egg, buttermilk, and 1 cup of water. SLOWLY add to dry ingredients while mixing with the other hand.
  • Mix together until it forms a ball that is not sticky or dry. It should be soft "like a baby's bottom".
  • Put in a greased bowl and cover with a light damp towel. Let dough rise until doubled (about 45 minutes or so).
  • Punch dough down and separate into 3 medium loaves. Place loaves in greased pans and let rise again for another 45 minutes.
  • Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes. (I usually check it a little early!).
