A tasty bread recipe based on a recipe by Valli Little

This IS a tasty bread! Good texture, too. I used a small loaf pan 12 cm X 16.5 cm X 6 cm deep and the timing was perfect as given. I used a combination of oregano and thyme as that is what I had in the garden, I think basil would be even better. Next time I'll add the chopped herbs in with the wet ingredients (step 4), it is difficult to get them well mixed in the following step. If you added chopped salami or pepperoni, you could call this pizza bread ;) Thanks for posting.
