Mouth-watering and easy to adjust to your personal tastes. Bakes up light and spongy. No eggs, milk or butter. My toddlers all want 2nds and 3rds of this when I make it!

Instructions Checklist
  • Pour the water into the pan of a bread machine, then sprinkle in the yeast and sugar. Let the mixture sit in the bread machine until a creamy foam forms on top of the water, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle in the salt, then add olive oil, thyme, garlic powder, rosemary, and flour. Set the machine for light crust setting, and start the machine.

Cook's Note

I use the light setting for the crust and the basic bread setting.

Oh my, this is the best white bread to come out of my bread machine in a long time. I followed the recipe exactly, but put the ingredients into the pan in the order recommended by the manufacturer of my machine, NOT in the order listed here. I used bread machine yeast, so did not proof the yeast in the water; I added the water and oil, then the flour, then the spices, salt, and sugar around the edge, and put the yeast in a little crater in the middle. My machine makes 2-3 lb loaves so I set in on white, two pound, light crust, and it rose up so fluffy and perfect. Great sandwich bread too! I've printed this recipe and can't wait to make more.

I tried this recipe and followed it exactly. My bread machine says to add the yeast last but I went ahead and let it proof in the bottom of the machine bucket like the recipe says. The loaf didn't turn out at all. It smelled wonderful but it never rose and it was a hard deflated mess. Read More

This was very good! I made this exactly as written and thought the flavor was great. This is definately a bread for the rosemary lover. This would be great dipped in some garlic infused olive oil. I will be making this again! Thanks for sharing. :) Read More

Added a tiny bit more yeast and set my breadmaker on "quick rise" because I thought it a bit overproofed the first time, and I also add a touch more oil, too. Otherwise, great recipe. PARTICULARLY GOOD used as bread for hot roast beef grilled sanwiches with Tillamook Vintage White Chesddar. MMMMmmmmm. . . . Read More

This is the best recipe my bread machine has ever made! The recipe is excellent and was gone in about an hour! Reading other reviews, the bread came out dense. However my loaf came out light and fluffy! I after the 10 minute yeast/ sugar wait, I added olive oil, then the mixed seasonings and salt, and finally the flour. I'm not sure if that had anything to do with my loaf coming out fluffy but HOORAY! GREAT LOAF!! Read More

Flavorful bread. I've never baked my bread in the bread machine with the instructions given by this recipe and thought i would give it a try. The crust was crunchy and the inside was quite tender. This recipe says it makes a 1.5 lb loaf but I think it's more like a pound. Read More
