I am a big fan of fast and simple cooking. This isn’t all that fast (it has to bake after all) but it was easy and it was quite the hit with even some of the more discerning pallets.
Rosemary Bread (Made in the Bread Machine)
· 1 cup warm water
· 2 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast (I measured, this was almost two packets but not quite)
· 3 tablespoons white sugar
· 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
· 3 tablespoons olive oil
· 1/2 teaspoon ground thyme
· 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
· 2 teaspoons crushed dried rosemary
· 3 cups all-purpose flour
Pour the water into the pan of a bread machine, then sprinkle in the yeast and sugar. Let the mixture sit in the bread machine until a creamy foam forms on top of the water, about 10 minutes.
Sprinkle in the salt, then add olive oil, thyme, garlic powder, rosemary, and flour. Set the machine for light crust setting, and start the machine.
(On my machine that means it was mixed and baked on the white bread setting)
Cool and enjoy!
