Have you ever made your own homemade bread? If you haven’t, what are you waiting for? It’s so much better than the store-bought stuff and there are so many recipes to fit any occasion!
I made this recipe this week and my house smelled like an Italian bakery! The Italian seasonings, parmesan cheese, and garlic were mouth watering! I couldn’t wait for it to be done!
You will need a bread machine for this recipe. Trust me, I have a very small kitchen and I know how valuable space is. To me, a bread machine is worth the space that it takes up! Bread machines make homemade bread so much easier! No need to mix and knead! You put the ingredients in, and it does all of the work for you and you get all the credit! This is the one that I have and love! I have made so many delicious breads with it! Making your own bread is also an easy way to save money! These ingredients cost me around $.50 for everything!
Whether you need a bread for dipping into soup or on the side of any meal, you can’t go wrong with this easy recipe! I hope you love my homemade bread as much as my family did! We served it along side some delicious potato soup (get the recipe here). We made grilled cheese sandwiches with it and dipped them into our soup, too! So yummy!
Delicious Homemade Italian Bread
Serve this along side a soup or any meal!
- 1 1/4 cups water
- 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp salt
- 3 1/2 cups bread flour
- 2 tsp sugar
- 2 tbsp Italian seasoning
- 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 2 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 2 tsp active dry yeast
Measure and add water and olive oil into the bread pan.
Measure and add all dry ingredients (except yeast) into the bread pan.
Create a small well with your finger in the flour where you will pour the yeast. Yeast must NEVER come into contact with a liquid when adding the ingredients.
Measure the yeast and carefully pour it into the well.
Snap the baking pan into the bread maker and close the lid.
Set the bread machine on the French setting.
Choose the 2 lb loaf size.
Choose the crust color: light, medium, or dark. I always choose dark.
Press start and enjoy the smell while it cooks!
Dip into your favorite soup or smear with your favorite butter and enjoy!
A "well" is just a small hole you make in the dry ingredients to prevent your yeast from touching the wet ingredients. This will ensure your bread will rise properly.
Careful measuring is important in bread recipes! Look at your ingredients at eye level to ensure accuracy!
