This is delicious! I don't normally think of dill as an Italian herb, but it works in this bread. I subbed butter for shortening, and dried parsley for fresh, but otherwise kept to the recipe. I did use the dough cycle on my machine and made a nice 9x5 loaf. I baked it at 350 for about 30 minutes, and was rewarded by a soft texture and a delicious flavor. Thank you for posting, made for ZWT4.
I made a portion of this recipe to use as the crust for Sicilian Calzone and it was great. Very easy to work with and a great flavor on it own. It worked beautifully with the calzone.
DELICIOUS, soft and tender! I added 1/3 cup snipped green onion to all the herbs in the recipe, 2 tablespoons vital wheat gluten, and 1 teaspoon lemon juice. I subbed butter for the shortening, and I increased the bread machine yeast by 3/4 teaspoon. I used the ABM on the dough cycle and shaped into two smaller loaves ~ slashed the tops and let rise for 30 minutes. Baked in Pyrex pans at 350F for 20 minutes; tented the loaves with foil and baked another 10 minutes ~ for a soft crust, I brushed the warm loaves with melted butter. Made for Parsley, March 2009 Herb/Spice in the Gardening Forum; and for It's Not Easy Being Green ~ March 2009 Tag Game in the TOTM Forum.
Zesty and flavorful! A very good bread.
WEEELLL, Dawn - Now THIS is a YUMMY recipe! :) I don't have a breadmaker, so I doubled this batch & made it in my new (Christmas gift) kitchen center. (My newest addition is the Dimension 2000 www.health for you ministry.com for those of you who aren't familiar with this machine.) I doubled the batch & ended up w/ 4 delicious loaves. I must admit that only THREE loaves made it to the freezer, the other one was finished off by my DH, me, & our two DS's - ages 5 & 4. The only thing I changed was that I added some vital wheat gluten & also some dough enhancer to the recipe - MMMMmmmm! This one's a definite keeper! Can't wait to try it toasted in the morning! THANK you for sharing, cuz! :)
This has such great flavor. I added some extra of the spices. I also had to add 7 teaspoons of flour to get the right consistency. The loaf was perfect. It makes great sandwich bread. JA
My family LOVED this...including my professional chef son-in-law. The kids wanted it toasted (and plain). We'll be making it again, and again. I made no changes to receipe. Thank you for sharing.
