Norton Bread

January 18, 2024

National Baking Day is a perfect opportunity for you to experiment with new baking recipes and techniques. If you're a fan of baking bread, why not try making a delicious loaf using Norton wine? It is the perfect opportunity to showcase our official Show-Me State grape. This wine is known for its rich and fruity flavor profile, which makes it a perfect addition to bread. When combined with flour, yeast, and other ingredients, Norton can add a unique depth of flavor to your bread, making it stand out from the rest.Ingredients for bread

PREP TIME: 5 minutes


3 C sifted unbleached bread flour

1 TBSP baking powder

2 TBSP sugar

1 1/3 C Norton wine (*Any dry Missouri wine works too)

1 TBSP melted butter



  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Combine the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Whisk to evenly distribute.
  3. Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients; pour in the wine.
  4. Stir well until the mixture is mostly combined.
  5. Turn the dough and leftover flour mixture onto a flat surface dusted with light layer of flour.
  6. Knead the dough for 3-5 minutes to incorporate the last of the flour mixture and create smooth dough. Shape the dough into an oval shape and place it on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  7. Brush the loaf with melted butter and cut three ¼ inch deep scores diagonally in the top of the loaf.
  8. Bake for 30-35 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit until the crust is browned slightly. Let cool for five minutes before cutting and serving.

*Any dry wine works but we recommend using Norton wine as it adds a nice, strong flavor and aroma.

1 C salted butter, room temperature
