Champagne Toast // take a megabite

I’d like to propose a toast to toast and edible puns and to breakfast cocktail toast concoctions. And good luck to all the buttery bread that’s ever lived. May you all be toasted, dunked in soup, or transformed into pudding.

Champagne Bread // take a megabite

Cheers to Elliot’s little foot in the left corner. And to casual bread baking without any yeast. I’d like to raise a glass to the lovely hills on top of this bread and the vaguely biscuit-y and english muffin-y texture that has me wanting to toast this for every meal.

Cheers to using this bread for French toast. (Oui!) Cheers to eating toast for lunch while twirling to springy tunes. Let’s make this bread on a casual night and have a grilled cheese for dinner while drinking the rest of the bottle of champagne with a hottie.

Champagne Bread with Orange Butter // take a megabite

Champagne Toast with Orange Butter (makes 1 loaf)
Bread recipe adapted from Kirbie Cravings via Une-Deux Senses

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 T sugar
  • 1 T baking powder
  • 1 t kosher salt
  • 2 T warm honey
  • 12 oz. champagne
  • 4 T butter melted
  • zest from 1 orange + 4+ T softened butter (+salt and honey to taste, optional)

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F. Spray a 9×5″ loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside. In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Using a wooden spoon stir the honey and champagne into the dry ingredients being careful not to over mix. Pour half of the melted butter into the bread pan. Spoon batter over the butter. Pour remaining two tablespoons of butter over the batter. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until the top is golden and a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool completely.
  2. Using an electric mixer beat together the orange zest and softened butter. Feel free to add a pinch of salt and honey to taste. Toast your bread and enjoy! Champagne toast!

This toast isn’t burnt. It’s just Cajun style.

YES!! This toast looks not only toasty good but it also looks super easy to make

Also, by hottie are you referring to the second sandwich I’d be inhaling?

And of course! Good-lookin’ handsome sandwiches are happening.

Baking champagne into bread sounds super yummy! Plus once you open a bottle you kind of have to drink the rest :)

I awoke this morning only to discover that there remained a half-drank bottle of champagne on the counter. (How did that happen?) Considering it a crime to pour this deliciousness down the drain, I saved it’s life and reincarnated it into the lush-i-ness of this bread. I am in love.
