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 you’re looking for 👌🏻
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 😉
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 😉)
*the seasonings can easily be adjusted to suit personal preferences and make other flavours of bread, so go ahead and play around with combinations!
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 450°
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.
I’d love to know if you make this/enjoyed it!
