Am not sure where my original review went, but I'm back to make it right! I'd received some Herbes from a friend who knows I enjoy baking, & used it in this recipe with great results! I particularly enjoyed them in combo with the flavor from the whole wheat flour ~ Very satisfying! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Stars tag]
Great bread. It's light, fragrant and delicious. Next time I make it I'll trim back on the salt a fair bit but other than that I wouldn't change a thing. I made 3/4 of the recipe and it made 5 huge (Texas size) sandwich buns and I can't wait to try a ham sannie using one of them, mmmmmmmm.
Makes a very beautiful, light, loaf, with a very intriguing fragrance of Herbs de Provence - smells lovely while baking! I used my bread machine, which made it very easy. I also heated the oil in the microwave for 30 seconds with the herbs in it, then let it sit for the prescribed 15 mintues - no idea if that had any extra herb releasing power, but it sure smelled great! I'll definately make this one again and again - in fact, I'm starting another loaf right now to take to my sister! Thanks for sharing this great recipe!! Made for PRMR Tag.
This is a very dense bread recipe; my DH likened it to a bagel and is very excited to eat it as toast in the morning! It was a bit too dense for my liking, but after I was making it for DH who entirely loved it! He suggested replacing the wheat flour with spelt; might reduce the heaviness of it. Overall, great tasting!
Wonderful bread which we enjoyed with chicken salad. I made it in the bread machine, but next time I will just use the dough cycle and bake it in the oven, either as bread or rolls. This makes too much dough for my bread machine, although delicious, it rose so high it hit the top of the bread machine! Thanks for sharing this fabulous bread which we will be having often!
This bread is wonderful! The flavor is so good. I used half wholewheat flour and half white bread flour, cut the salt in half and dumped it all in the bread machine, let it go on normal cycle and I got a lovely high, good textured loaf of bread. It makes a 1 1/2 pound loaf for those using the bread machine. Thanks, for a nice bread recipe! Carole in Orlando
