This recipe is for a 2 pound loaf of bread made with a bread machine.
1 1/2 cups warm water
4 tsp. margarine or butter
1 tbls. minced garlic
4 cups bread flour (I use whole wheat)
2 tbls. honey or sugar
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tbls. dried herbs (herb de provence or Italian herbs work well)
1 3/4 tsp. yeast ( I use yeast for bread machines)
1.Measure and add liquid ingredients to the bread pan
2. Measure and add dry ingredients, except yeast, to the bread pan
3. Use your finger to form a dry well in the flour. Be careful not to get any of the wet ingredients in this well. Then add the yeast into the well that you made. The yeast cannot come in contact with the wet ingredients so pour carefully.
4. Place the bread pan in machine and choose Basic bread setting.
5. Choose your crust color and press start button.
This bread is a great addition to Spaghetti, Lasagna and soup recipes.
