Honey bread: 29 recipes that will conquer your taste

If there’s one thing with a childhood taste that stays tasty for the rest of your life, it’s honey bread.

It doesn’t matter if these days it’s less glamorous than the well-married, for many people, nothing replaces fluffy dough flavored with spices and brown sugar covered in a layer of chocolate.

Although for many people talking about honey bread refers to exactly this: a dough of spices covered with milk chocolate, at most with a layer of dulce de leche in the filling, nowadays the recipe has gained several variations, such as brigadeiro filling, white chocolate frosting and even an Easter egg version! Check out some of these recipes below!

Traditional gingerbread recipes

1. Original Honey Bread: this is the classic recipe, that is, just the dough covered with chocolate. Among the spices used are nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon and a special touch of orange zest. In addition to the ease of not needing to fill, another advantage of this recipe is that it is available both in written and video versions.

2. Honey bread with dulce de leche filling: even though it’s not the original version, this is possibly the most famous version of honey bread. In addition to the dulce de leche filling, other differentials of this recipe are the milk infused with spices to give it more flavor, and the fact that the honey bread is finished on a toothpick, which gives it a very special charm.

3. Gluten-free and lactose-free gingerbread: with a written and video version, this recipe is a relief for those who are allergic to gluten or lactose and thought they would never be able to eat gingerbread again. In it, wheat flour is replaced by potato starch, chickpea flour and almond flour, while hot water takes the place of milk.

4. Wholemeal honey bread: also without milk in the dough, this recipe is more nutritious because it uses wholemeal flour instead of traditional wheat flour. In addition to nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves, it also has a touch of powdered ginger, which adds an extra layer of flavor. Another cool thing about the recipe is that it proposes a simplified finish, with the chocolate only in the frosting.

5. Vegan Honey Bread: For those who are vegan or are uncomfortable with the pungent flavor of spices, this is the ideal recipe. That’s because it dispenses with the use of cloves, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg, using only corn glucose instead of honey to flavor the dough. Another difference is that, while the other recipes are made in a blender, this one can be blended by hand.

6. Sugarcane molasses bread: whether for you or to sell, this recipe is cool because it’s vegan and very similar to the original. The molasses, of course, goes in place of the honey. But the recipe is also different in that it uses peanut milk instead of conventional milk.

7. Truffle Honey Bread: Are you a perfectionist or do you make sweets for weddings? In that case, you need this recipe here, which proposes a perfect finish for the honey bread with the help of candy molds. Although it sounds laborious, it’s not a time-consuming recipe, as you can take advantage of the time the dough is in the oven to make and freeze the chocolate cones in the molds. Then, just fill with the two layers of dough and with the dulce de leche, cover again with the chocolate and it’s ready.

8. Insufflated Honey Bread: another recipe that uses candy or honey bread molds for a more perfect finish, this one has the special fact of incorporating honey into the dough only at the end of the recipe and in a very soft way, as if was a snow white. The result is that, thus, the honey does not emulsify the other ingredients and the dough loses its “pulling” characteristic.

9. Frying pan honey bread: by now you may have noticed that all the recipes have a similar preparation. Not the case with this one!

When this happens, turn the other side and that’s it, just put the chocolate syrup.

10. Honey bread with dulce de leche and plum: don’t be scared by this recipe that uses mayonnaise – that’s right, mayonnaise – in the preparation.

15. Unicorn Honey Bread: the unicorn fashion came to honey bread with this recipe that, in addition to spices, milk, flour and honey, also uses condensed milk – instead of brown sugar.
