A wholesome, rustic bread to serve with pasta, soup or for making sandwiches. From Jennie Shapter's Bread Machine Cookbook (one of my favorites).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add ingredients to the bread machine, according to the manufacturer's directions.
  2. I mix all my flours, gluten and grains together, well, before adding to the bread machine.
  3. Add the salt in one corner of the pan and the sugar in another.
  4. Make a well in the flour and add the yeast in the middle.
  5. Set on basic setting with normal crust and check at the end of 5 minutes to see if more liquid or flour is needed.
  6. This makes a one pound loaf.

I made this bread in my Kitchen Aid stand mixer, I use dried basil, added in 1 more tablespoon olive oil, increased the white flour by 2 cups and increased the yeast to 1 tablespoon, I used toasted walnuts and omited the gluten, this bread was simply fabulous! Thanks Carole!...Kitten:)

Mmmm, very good! I made this by hand, and like a previous reviewer, baked it at about 340. Took about 50 minutes. I waited for the tell-tale 'crackle' of the crust.
Wonderful flavor. I forgot to add the garlic (although I minced it... sigh) but it was wonderful anyway. I can see adding some shredded cheese on top before baking to make a cheesy herb bread.

Absolutely loved this bread! I made it in my breadmachine, on the dough setting, and then shaped it into a loaf, and allowed it to rise for a couple of hours. I baked it at 350 for 40 minutes, and it's perfect! I did use 2 tsp of fresh garlic and basil (each). Thanks so much for sharing this fantastic recipe!
