This authentic Italian honey bread recipe is from Concetta and it is called Mustazzoli. It is often served at weddings and special events.
MUSTAZZOLI (Concettas’ recipe)
1 medium sized jar of liquid honey
1-1/2 cups water
4 tsp (heaping) baking powder
Mix in enough flour to absorb the liquids. Knead to make a firmer dough than bread. Concetta makes it in the evening, leaves it over night and then cooks it in the morning. Bake at 325 deg F till firm and brown.
You can use 1/2 jar honey for a smaller batch of Mustazzoli. This will make a few long narrow loaves, but they freeze well. The more times you make this Italian Honey Bread the better the recipe will turn out so stick with it. Mangiare!!
