    Rita~'s Note:

    This is a Cajun bread spiced with tomato, spices, garlic, heat form hot peppers. I read and was told you can not mix fresh garlic into the bread dough because the garlic will kill the yeast. I have and never had a problem. Just look at the picture of my bread. Be sure to place the garlic in separate corners from the yeast.

      I've made this twice so far. It mixed up perfectly in the bread machine. It is a very good savory bread. Recommended.

      Definitely an excellent bread, very easy to prepare in the breadmaker, DH says its the best Looking bread I've made so far, and the taste is excellent too! I was worried it might be a little 'hot', but not at all, just a pleasant tang. mine is also a lovely colour, a sort of - pale coral! And great texture. I have this for sandwiches today, filled with blue cheese and tomato, very nice! We will make this again, thank you Rita!
