In my experience, 1 1/3 cups liquid to 4 cups flour sounded not right so I used only 3 cups flour and still ended up adding a sprinkle more water to make the dough pliable enough that the machine could knead it properly. Amount of liquid needed can be related to climate but at this time of year our climate isn't dry. So I advise comparing the liquid to flour ratio to the basic recipes in the book that came with your machine. Other than that, the bread was OK.
followed recipe to the letter but dough didn't rise enough i let it rise 45 minutes coated with egg mix and put slit across top baked 35 minutes crust was hard and didn't brown.
First Italian bread I've made that actually came out!
I've lost track of the number of times I've made this. I've always made it for Super Italian Sub. Great recipe.
I was cooking pasta and needs some sort of Italian bread. I followed the recipe and I used my bread machine for the first time. I didn't have any bread flour, so I used 3 cups of AP flour and 1 cup of whole wheat. I had to add a little extra water, but it turned out great and I love the taste of whole wheat. Made an excellent garlic bread.
I followed the recipe exactly and I agree with all the other posters. The bread was so easy and delicious. I'm getting to be quite the "Kittencal" recipe fan. The few recipes I've tried have all come out delicious.
Thanks for posting this bread recipe.
Top-Notch recipe as usual! Wonderful texture,nice crust from the egg wash,tasty when toasted as well.
Wow Kittencal! What wonderful bread. I was actually going to make another recipe that I got from Zaar, but ran out of parmesan & opted for this one instead. I am sooo glad that I did. This was easy, flavorful, & the texture was perfect. I can't keep my hands off of it for toast. Thanks again for another very good recipe!!
This was such an easy to follow and very yummy recipe. I was lazy and didn't feel like going to the store for a loaf, but the lasagna dinner 'required' Italian bread. I had the ingredients on hand, and since it was from 'Kitten', I knew it would be good. Another winner--even the hubby raved. Thanks!
