Those look delicious, Charlie. I made Lukshen (Noodle) Kugel for breaking the fast tomorrow.

I'm thinking about doing this. My Dh bought honey from a local farmer. Its raw (still has comb in it)

I don't want to make that much though. One loaf would be fine for us. What would I need to do to cut the portion down?

I would think that you could proportionally cut down everything to one loaf. Sounds like a pretty forgiving recipe.

Just please don't ask me to do it for you, I'm mathematically challenged!

OK, Robin, upon eyeballing the recipe, I think we can do this.

I am not a baker. IMHO, the most important thing would be to cut back on the flour, eggs, and oil. The spices can be added to taste. I may have to search out some local honey just to try making the bread.

I think you might want to strain the comb out, it might change the texture. Just put it in a colander, save the wax for something else.

I just tried a little bit of it on bread. It's wildflower honey. It tastes a bit different than clover honey. Not as sweet. But I did notice that one jar does not have the comb in it. So I'll use that one for the recipe and save the other for snacking or whatever.
