Description

A fabulous and easy herb bread.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Warm Water
  • 1-½ teaspoon Sugar
  • 1-½ teaspoon Active Dry Yeast
  • 2-½ cups Flour
  • 1-½ teaspoon Salt
  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 3-½ teaspoons Herbes De Provence (or Italian Herb Mix, Or Your Own Favorite Herb Mix)
  • ¼ teaspoons Black Pepper

Preparation

Using a stand mixer with a dough hook, mix the water, sugar and yeast in the bowl of a stand mixer. Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes, or until bubbly. Add 1/2 cup flour, the salt, olive oil, herbs and pepper and mix, on medium speed, for a minute or two. Gradually add the rest of the flour, mixing on low speed until all of the flour is incorporated, and the dough starts to pull away from the bowl, about 6 minutes. Grease a clean bowl, and transfer the dough to the greased bowl. Cover with a damp towel and let rise in a warm place for an hour.

Press the dough down, and transfer to a baking sheet (or a pizza stone, your call). Form the dough into a loaf shape, cover with the towel, and let the dough rise for another hour. Carefully remove the towel (some of the dough may want to cling to it), and bake the dough at 375° for about 30 minutes.

Like the last two reviewers, my bread turned a bit on the flat side. It was incredibly tasty and the middle was soft, though! I sliced it in long strips (like biscotti), so it was perfect for dipping into soup. Very good!

I had the same experience as xiuxiu. The bread was good, but it seemed like the dough was a bit too wet and it baked up flatter than bread normally does. I think if I were to make it again I’d use a bit more flour and yeast.

Made this yesterday. It came out very tasty and soft, but my bread was kinda flat and round (like a fluffy pancake as my daughter puts it). The dough was very sticky, and really hard to shape into loaf.
I wonder what did I do wrong.

Loved this bread! All homemade bread is good in my opinion, but the herbs in this are just wonderful. I’ve been looking for reasons to use my herbs de provence as well, so this worked out perfectly

This is my go-to bread! Good with soups, stews, salads or just dipped in olive oil.
