Italian (or not) Bread

Italian (or not) Bread

This recipe comes together easily and pretty quickly, as far as bread recipes go… two things I appreciate when it comes to bread making!
It can also be tweaked and personalized very easily to go with whatever flavour youโ€™re looking for ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

Enjoy and not only good luck making it but also in doing your best to not eat a whole loaf or two yourself, once they are out of the oven ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups warm water
2 tbsp yeast
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
5 1/2 cups flour
1 egg white / oil (I used rosemary infused olive oil)
2 tbsp Italian seasoning*
1 tbsp everything bagel seasoning (optional…but nice ๐Ÿ˜‰)

*the seasonings can easily be adjusted to suit personal preferences and make other flavours of bread, so go ahead and play around with combinations!

 

 

Instructions:

Pour the water, sugar and yeast into a bowl and let it sit for 10-15 minutes until the yeast has activated.

Add the remaining ingredients and mix it all together until well blended.

Move to a warm area, cover and let rise for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 450ยฐ

Punch down the dough and then divide and form into three loaves.

Using a sharp knife, score the tops of the loaves and then brush with either egg white or oil.

Let the loaves rise another 5 minutes.

Bake for 12-15 minutes.

 

 

I brushed a little butter over the loaves and ground some corse salt on top, once I removed them from the oven.

Iโ€™d love to know if you make this/enjoyed it!

Hello humans ๐Ÿ˜Š This is where you learn about me I suppose, though anyone reading this right now most likely knows all the boring details ;) I am Jessica Rose Peters-Hagenouw. (Always thought I'd be able to pronounce my married name but hey, life doesn't go as we plan.) June 11, 1995, tis the day Robert and Bonnie Peters received the most adorable, amazing, wonderful, surprise 3rd child they could have dreamed of. Speaking of being the third child, I have an older brother and an older sister. Both of whom are married and have wee little families of their own, making 'Aunty Jess' another name I go by. I grew up and have lived all of my years up till November 2015 in Saskatchewan, Canada. Making summers that are extremely short and winters that never end, vast open spaces, northern lights, unthinkable amounts of mosquitoes, lakes, forests and people waving to you on the grid road all different things that mean = Home. But Home is not where I'll be for some time. My husband is a Dutchman, living in Europe. Therefore I too have been living in Europe for the last few months. The reason I started this little blog/journal/writing thing, is to document a bit of my "whole new world," for those at home who wont be awake at 3:00 am wanting to hear about how I couldn't find flour at the grocery store. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek into my little life ๐Ÿ˜Š
