Here is my best explanation:

'homemade bread' is the definition.
I don't know anything about this answer so I cannot tell whether it can be defined by this definition.

'lounge behind country dwelling' is the wordplay.
I cannot really understand how this works, but
'lounge' could be 'loaf' ('loaf' can be a synonym of 'lounge') and 'loaf' is present in the answer.
'country' could be 'us' (US is an example) and 'us' is found within the answer.
'dwelling' could be 'farm' (I have seen 'Agricultural dwelling' mean 'farm' so perhaps 'dwelling' could also mean 'farm') and 'farm' is located in the answer.
The remaining letters 'hoe' is a valid word which might be clued in a way I don't see.
This may be the basis of clue (or it may be nonsense).

'producing' is the link.
