This is an easy bread machine recipe that I came up with after tweaking a few other recipes, mixing and matching and finding what works for me. My family likes to eat this while still warm, and we usually dip it in olive oil, with a few drops of balsamic vinegar and coarsely ground pepper. I have listed ingredients by the way I add them to MY bread machine, so be sure to check that your particular bread machine doesn't require another way of adding ingredients. If so, follow your bread machines instructions for the order in which to add ingredients.
- 1 1⁄4 cups warm milk
- 2 tablespoons rosemary
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons sea salt
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 3 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons yeast
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 tablespoon rosemary
- Combine milk with 2 T rosemary and microwave until warm; about 45 seconds.
- Place ingredients in bread pan in order specified by your bread machines manual.
- Use the white bread and light crust setting.
- Press start.
- BEFORE SERVING:.
- Mix above ingredients for the rub and brush on bread after removing from bread machine. Ideally, while bread is still warm.
This was delicious warm and really smelled lovely. It did dry out quite quickly and was crumbly in the school lunches so I feel this is one to be enjoyed warm from the oven and it would be quite easy to eat the whole thing like that.
This is absolutely fabulous! This was my first attempt using the bread machine and it turned out great! I used fresh rosemary from the garden and didn't think it needed the rub at all. I'm curious if the recipe is insteaded for a 1 lb loaf size though? That's what I put it on and it turned out great, but just wondering!
This was one of the best tasting breads I have ever eaten. The only changes I made were I had to add more flour because it was really soupy so I added about a 1/4 cup more and it made it perfect...I also drizzled some garlic infused extra virgin olive oil over the top while it was mixing and put it on the french bread setting. It was FABULOUS!!!!! The sea salt/oil/rosemary at the end made it really fantastic. I made gourmet grilled cheese sammy's out of it and dunked them in homemade tomato basil soup. The family rated this 10+ stars! Thanks so much!
