  • 1/4 cup butter

  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried yeast


  • Melt the butter in a frying pan and saute the onions over low heat until golden brown.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and let the onions cool slightly.
  • Place a sieve over the bread machine pan, then tip the contents of the frying pan into it so the juices fall into the pan.
  • Set the onions aside to cool completely.
  • Add the water and honey to the bread pan. Reverse the order in which you add the wet and dry ingredients if necessary for your machine.
  • Add the flour.
  • Place the salt and pepper in separate corners.
  • Make a shallow indent in the center of the flour and add the yeast.
  • Set the bread machine to the dough setting using the basic raisin dough setting if available.
  • Press start.
  • Add the onions when the machine beeps OR in the last 5 minutes of kneading.
  • Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  • When the cycle has finished, remove the dough from the bread pan and place on a lightly floured surface.
  • Pull back gently on the dough; shape into a ball.
  • Place on the baking sheet and cover with oiled waxed paper.
  • Let rise for about 45 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Slash a 1/2 inch deep cross in the top of the loaf.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes.
