DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • Dissolve the yeast in a large bowl in warm water.
  • Stir in honey, oil, salt, nutmeg, and 2 cups of the flour. Beat until very smooth, about 1 minute. Gradually add enough of the remaining flour to make a stiff dough.
  • Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth, about 5 minutes.
  • Place in a greased bowl, cover, and let rise in a warm place until about double in size, about 50 minutes. Punch down on dough.
  • Press dough into greased jelly roll plan (about 15x10x1-inch). Cut dough into about 2½-inch squares with a sharp knife, cutting two-thirds of the way through the dough. Cover and let rise until double in size, about 30 minutes.
  • Dissolve the instant coffee in the milk and brush over the dough. Bake until the bread is golden brown, about 35 minutes.
  • Break the bread into squares to serve.
