Rosemary Olive Oil Bread

Rosemary Olive Oil Bread

I hope that everyone had a great holiday season! It has been some time since I posted so it’s good to be back. Several months ago I tried a no-knead bread recipe I found on Pinterest. It was great – easy, fast, and delicious! It got me looking at and trying lots of other bread recipes I came across. In fact, I haven’t purchased any bread at the store since!

Some recipes, I found, were easier, some were faster, and some had a much better flavor and texture. I’m still trying new recipes and this one, for Rosemary Olive Oil Bread, will definitely be added to my bread rotation. I found this recipe at A Hint of Honey and made a few changes when I made it. For one thing she baked her’s on a pizza stone. A pizza stone is on my want list but I don’t have one yet so decided to bake mine in a loaf pan. It worked great! Also, she used white wheat flour in her bread but I didn’t have any in my pantry so I used all-purpose and bread flour, and again, it worked great. So basically this is a very easy and flexible recipe.

If  you have never made your own bread it is really worth a try. There are recipes out there for bread that can be mixed up in just minutes and that don’t require any kneading. Recipes for other breads, like this Rosemary Olive Oil Bread require a little more time but especially if you have a stand mixer with a dough hook, are really very easy. (No stand mixer with a dough hook? A Hint of Honey gives instructions for mixing by hand) AND the smell of homemade bread baking in your kitchen is one that just can’t be beat AND no chemicals (preservatives, flavor enhancers ect – who needs them???)

This is a delicious bread, light and with a great flavor and texture! Don’t be intimated by the long list of ingredients, it’s not as complicated as it looks and mixes up quickly and easily! I would love to hear your comments about it!
