You Asked For It: Honey Whole Wheat Bread

I would like the honey bread recipe for a bread like the one served at Cody's Roadhouse.

Jamal Tomlinson, St. Petersburg

Tampa resident Sandi Hankerson scanned the Internet for a copycat recipe for Cody's honey bread and came up empty. She found a bread machine version at the website that is easy, egg-free and delicious. I tested this recipe with a Breville bread machine and added the ingredients in the order my machine recommends. Liquids are first, dry next and yeast last. Follow your manufacturer's instructions for best results. The honey flavor is subtle, and I may add an extra tablespoon the next time I make it.

Nancy Eggert of Dunedin was in New York recently and saw a pastry she'd like to try. She didn't have time to run into the bakery to get one so she hopes a reader is familiar with sfogliatelle and can share a recipe.
