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.Read 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. :)
Easy. Dense bread with light crust. I used fresh herbs so doubled the amount.
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. . . .

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!!
Terrific recipe! I brought it to a dinner party, and it was a big hit with the crowd. Served with soft butter or olive oil, it is the perfect (and simplest!) appetizer.
It turned out just like the photo and the taste is wonderful. For my machine is was a 2lb rapid loaf 1.5 hours on lite crust, then let it cool.
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.
Excellent recipe! SO easy and came out PERFECTLY! nice thin crunchy crust, super soft dough. loved the step by step instructions for using regular dry yeast instead of bread machine yeast which I can never find here! Threw in some coarsely chopped black olives and chives. Cut back on the thyme. Next time will double up on the garlic and rosemary for a more poignant savory taste. Lives up to it's name though! Super Easy! Thanks for the recipe!
I baked in the oven at 375. After 10 minutes, I brushed it with vegetable oil. Put it back in for 12 more minutes to finish. Fantastic bread.
WOW! This bread is so Terrific!!! I made it exactly as the recipe says in my bread machine and it turned out so amazing. One of the best bread recipes I've ever made. We sliced it up and dipped it in marinara sauce and enjoyed it so much that we ate the whole loaf in one sitting. It is definately a favorite in my home. This recipe is a keeper! Thank-you so much for sharing it and Thanks also to all the wonderful reviews of it which helped me decide to try it. I hope others will try it and enjoy it as much as we do!!!
This recipe is the BEST bread I've ever tasted. It has a surprising and delightful sweetness to it. My bread machine runs warm, so I omitted a teaspoon of yeast, and since I was working with bread machine yeast, I changed the order, putting in the water, oil, and salt first, then combining the dry ingredients and dumping them in, then creating a small well in the top of the dry ingredients and adding the yeast. It was PERFECT! I also made a garlic dipping oil for it... it is AWESOME. My roommate and I ate almost the whole thing in about 15 minutes!
I don't know if it's the olive oil or what, but this bread has such a lovely texture that I can't explain. My 13-year old son tasted it and hugged me! I made it on the "dough" setting in the machine, then baked at 350 until it looked golden brown. A keeper - probably makes good rolls or "knots".
This is my all-time favorite bread recipe! I double it and bake it in my oven instead of the bread machine. This bread doesn't even need butter because it is so flavorful.
Best bread ever... so delicious and a crowd pleaser. Works great with roast, pasta dishes, and poultry dishes too. Have fun with it... enjoy!
Oh My! This just came out of my machine and am super pleased. I gave it 4 stars because I changed two things. I did not proof my yeast & I was out of garlic powder so left it out. Put in the ingredients in the machine according to my machine's instructions. Rose beautifully. Super flavorful even without the garlic. King Arthur AP Flour, King Arthur Fast Yeast, a Touch More Oil. Also toasts up beautifully. Am using toasted squares for the Spinach Artichoke Dip w/ tomorrow's Thanksgiving Apps. Thank you for sharing. I will be making this again and again. Oh! I actually mean another loaf right now as we keep eating it. Might not have any leftover for tomorrow. Update: I am making me 5th loaf right now. Has become a staple in our house. Thank you, again.
I attempted to make this recipe twice and it failed on me both times. The first time, the yeast didn't seem to 'work'. It smelled so nice that I tried again and the second time it turned out worse- it was a crumbly mess. Maybe my flour was the problem. I used Robin Hood All Purpose Best for Bread flour(Canada). It's a shame because it smelled amazing!
Followed the recipe exactly and it did not rise much so I was worried it would be dense and flat. To my delight, it came out soft and fluffy in the middle with a nice, lightly crunchy crust. All three picky kids loved it. Note to those using a large bread machine (mine is a Zojirushi): this recipe will cook a very small loaf as written. To get the larger loaf, the recipe will need to be doubled. I will try that next time.
Great and easy bread recipe. I ran out of all purpose flour so used half whole wheat flour, and it came out just fine. Other than that, i followed the recipe exactly as written. The fragrance during baking is simply delicious. I will add sliced olives my third time around. I doubled the herbs the second time and used 2 cups wheat flour and 1 cup all purpose. This will be a regular item at my house! Super yummy!
Soooo good! I added 4 tsps of Vital Wheat Gluten and did not proof the yeast; following my breadmaker guidance. It was great with just a little spread (we are vegan) and even better toasted for a sandwich.
This is a wonderful recipe! I've tried the original, then tried doubling the herbs. Both turned out great (but we did prefer the doubled herb batch). Yesterday I used this recipe to create a light rye bread by changing the 3 C white flour to 1 cup each white, whole wheat & rye flours - also dropped the herbs but adding 1 Tbls caraway and ground flax seed. EXCELLENTLY AWESOME RESULTS!!! - In each case, I used my bread machine to only mix the dough, baking the loaf in my oven. As suggested by others, I followed my bread machine directions with regard to the placement of the yeast (not premixing it). - I'm thinking that I won't be buying 'store-bought' bread very much anymore - so THANK YOU STACY!
I like my bread lighter and fluffier than this recipe originally allows. So I made some slight changes to get that restaurant table bread texture that melts in your mouth. I replaced the all purpose flour with bread flour, the yeast with baking yeast, the rosemary with fresh picked rosemary, and most importantly I added an eyeballed amount of extra olive oil. (really good olive oil). My bread machine also called for a doubled recipe. I learned this about half way through the kneading process when my machine flashed the 'add' signal at me. I believe I have a standard sized machine so this might be something you should prepare for. This bread turned out great the first time made exactly as reciped, but I ound adding these subtle changes made for a less dense, air pocket filled loa. perfect with a plate of olive oil and cab-sav balsamic vinegar! fresh out of the oven, my friends devoured the entire loaf in minutes.
This is a fantastic tasting bread. By the 4th loaf I added/changed the spices: Celery & caraway seed, dried garlic chips and dried onion. A teaspoon to wheat gluten helps to. (I can't resist messing with things) Also substituted 1c of whole wheat flour. Overall this is great as it stands with no mods.
Very crunchy, will try with bread flour. Added olives, subbed some of the water with olive juice
Easy and delicious. I didn't have any rosemary so I subbed it and the thyme with dried Italian seasoning and some fresh chopped parsley. I had instant yeast so I used 2 1/4 tsp and it worked great. I didn't have to let it proof. Loved the flavor of the olive oil. I used the light setting for a 1.5 lb loaf. I turned off my machine about 7 mins before the end because it looked just right to me. Will definitely make this again.
I really liked the texture of this bread compared to the other rosemary bread recipe. If you use AP flour bread will be a little more "airy" and if you use bread flour it will come out a little more dense. I like my bread more airy so I always use AP flour. I will for sure make this again.
I loved this bread! It was super easy to make and not dry at all.
Smelled goo while it was baking, but the taste was bland. It was just okay.
Most tender bread ever! I am using the base of this recipe and trying different flavors (lemon poppyseed, orange chocolate chip, rye.....
I usded 1 1/2 tsp. of bread machine yeast INSTEAD of the 2 1/2 tsp. of active yeast. Did everything else the same. It was perfect. The reason a reduced the yeast measurement is BECAUSE that is a better amount and average/typical for a 1 1/2 lb. loaf in the machine. Thanks for the recipe!!
This bread turned out wonderful. The texture and flavour was great. I followed the steps exactly and was very pleased. I will be using this as my base recipe for bread, just changing the "flavour" as I like. Added bonus: no egg and no dairy means my little one can enjoy this too. Thank you so much for sharing! (This is my first ever review - this bread is that good)
We doubled all of the herbs except the rosemary, which we increased by 1tsp. We like stronger flavor!
Really enjoyed this. Fantastic texture - great for toast. I add the yeast last, as recommended by my breadmaker. Update: After making this about 6-8 more times over the few months, I have come up with a slightly more healthy version without sacrificing taste. Reduce both sugar and olive oil from 3 Tbsp. to 2 Tbsp. Increase the rosemary to about 2 Tbsp. Substitute 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour for the white flour if desired. I always use bread flour instead of all-purpose.
I used the dough cycle on my machine and made it into 15 rolls. They were delicious!
Very good, moist inside, light flaky crust. Nice flavor, not overpowering yet not too subtle. I made this using the ingredients listed, but using my machines recommended order. No mixing yeast w water. I used bread machine yeast and added it after the flour. I used 2 and 1/4 tsp yeast instead as that's been the common amount in all other recipes I have used. Hopefully this made sense and it is helpful to someone. You can surely double the spices if you are looking for a stronger flavor. But as is this was great!
I followed the recipe, but used my own bread machine directions (it has a yeast dispenser). Like some other people, the dough smelled great, but didn't rise at all.
The house smelled GREAT making this in my bread machine. I grow my own rosemary, and thyme so I used fresh herbs, and garlic cloves instead of dried. My husband never wants me to buy another loaf of bread from the store again.
Nom Nom Nom. That just about describes it!
Excellent & EASY, followed the instructions and it came out perfect! Great with spaghetti.
I have made this recipe every weekend for the past month.My family has eaten this up and just love it. Can't wait to try some more recipes. Thanks; Alida
I put the ingredients in order according to my bread machine......this bread is amazing. I cannot wait to make it for a family dinner.
Just made this and had a loaf with dinner. I threw in some sliced green olives when my machine beeped for it. We really enjoyed this! Spread some on our own homemade goat cheese, too. Very simple recipe and came out perfect.
This tastes good but the outside was way too crunchy, it was like eating a cracker.
My kids are the world's pickiest eaters and even they gobbled this bread down. Smells divine while baking, tastes even better. Served as an appetizer with olive oil/balsamic vinegar/dash of kosher salt for dipping -- YUM! This was my first attempt with the bread machine and it couldn't have been simpler.
Excellent bread recipe. Bread has wonderful texture. Flavors are just the right intensity. Thank you Stacy!
This bread tastes amazing. I was a little skeptical to be using all purpose flour rather than bread flour, but the dough was the perfect texture & it raised perfectly. The crust is a hard shell over a light, fluffy center. I used rosemary infused olive oil so only used 1 teaspoon of actual rosemary & it was perfect. I did not proof the yeast, just added it as the last ingredient in my bread machine & it was fine. I will definitely make this again.
We're new to a bread machine, and this was our fourth recipe. It was by far the best one we've done. I followed the recipe exactly, and the bread came out perfect, with a light but firm crust, tender inside with a lovely flavor of rosemary and a hint of the olive oil. It even looked better than any of the previous loaves! A keeper!
I made two loves this past weekend, one by hand and one in my bread machine, both were fantastic! The one I baked in the oven the crust was softer. Definitely a keeper! Thanks for sharing this recipe!
I loved this bread! I ran out of dried rosemary, so I diced up a little fresh rosemary and it came out fabulous! This is a winner
The bread was yummy! But this was my first experience with my machine. I used new yeast and it rose just perfect. But during the bake cycle the bread fell. I followed the instructions of the recipe to the T, but not sure what happened. Too much yeast? Help - because i would like to make it again, but want the pretty crust!
I really like this recipe, easy and the bread is so good, soft and smells just great!
We are fans! Not too herb-y and turned out fluffy. I think the bread machine instructions trump the directions here. I followed my bread machine instructions (liquid, dry and yeast on top) and it turned out great. I did the dough setting and made rolls baking at 350 for 15 after brushing the tops with butter and sprinkling with sea salt. Delicious.
It's by far one of my favorite breads! I love the way the house smells for days after I made it. love it!!
Really great recipe! I am a horrible baker and was nervous about adding the yeast not how my bread machine instructions dictate. Super easy and delicious. Don't be afraid of the first step!
1/2 cup warm water 1 1/4 t yeast 1 1/2 T sugar 3/4 t salt 1 1/2 T olive oil 2 t oregano 2 t garlic powder 1 t rosemary 1 1/2 cups bread flour I adjusted the loaf to make about a 1 lb loaf
Thought it a bit dry for my taste, so the day after I used it for toast. Very good! It slices very well. I'll try cooking it on a shorter bread machine cycle next time.
Made exactly as the recipe stated and it came out great!
Excellent flavor. Raised and baked perfectly.
We loved this bread! It was light and aromatic and I loved that all-ourpose flour could be used. Will definitely make again, especially since we grow rosemary!
Wonderful. My whole family loves it!
This is by far the beat bread recipe I have ever tried. It came out of my breadmaker PERFECT! It was SO TASTY!!! My kids also gobbled it right up and asked for more! Thank you for this amazing recipe!! 5 stars!!
Used vegetable oil instead of olive and added a little bit of black pepper. Added the yeast last as per my manufacturers instructions and baked on light crust. This was delicious! Baked up beautifully. Very few crumbs made this a great sandwich bread. May lighten up a little on the rosemary next time.
So easy and delicious! I didn't change anything. I just cut pieces from the prepared dough and baked then in the oven in the form of a pull-apart bread. Excellent combination of herbs!
I haven't used my breadmaker in a while and I tell you what, this worked marvelously! I left out the thyme because I was out, but it still came out wonderful! It complemented my roasted chicken and pasta greatly! It's also savory enough that I am eating it toasted with honey this morning! Thanks again!
Added some fresh rosemary as well as the dried and also some "Everything But the Bagel" seasoning turned out wonderful! Beautiful crust and delicious bread!
Loved the sound of the recipe and had to try it out. Sure glad I did
It was a delicious bread, I substituted a cup and a half of white flour for a smidge over a cup of fresh ground wheat (white and while wheat absorb liquids different) I found it did not raise much and I can easily fit a double batch in my bread machine, other than being a little small, the flavor was great!
Decent bread, albeit too sweet.
Loads of great flavor. Bread was nice and fluffy with a light crust. This recipe is a keeper!
The taste was good and addicting, although it was really just spice.
I made this recipe in my Zojirushi bread maker. I followed the recipe exactly as the recipe called for. It is delicious, very light and fluffy but with a crisp crust. Worth my time for sure!
We loved it... though used 1 TBSP fresh rosemary and I decided to leave out the garlic and thyme, and only used 2 TBSP sugar. I used the dough setting. Shaped into two loaves and rose again for about 45 minutes. Baked for about 30 minutes. Came out soft and fluffy with a slight crust. very nice.
This is in my bread machine right now. My house smells so good. From the reviews we are really going to enjoy this.
Made this for a ladies summer dinner, turned out fabulous! I substituted 1 cup whole wheat flour for 1 cup of white bread flour and it worked great. I did think it a bit too sweet, 3 tablespoons of sugar is a lot, next time I will try two. Also I followed one of the other reviews and put items in liquids first, then flour, seasonings, sugar and bread yeast in the well last. I was a bit concerned because my yeast was a week past use date (it is kept in frig) but it was just fine. Highly recommend! Served with a cream cheese spread of parsley with lemon. Yum!
I used a teaspoon of fresh rosemary chopped extra fine, instead of dried. Absolutely delicious, soft texture. Thanks for sharing.
Super Easy and is very good toasted.
Added a bit more salt, it turns out great every time.
Excellent and very easy. I used the light crust setting but will experiment next time with medium crust.
Holy cow!! Like another reviewer, I changed up the order of ingredients. I have an Oster bread machine and followed their recommendation of liquid then solids then yeast. Set it to the "Basic Bread: Large" setting. It came out amazing! It's still cooling so hopefully it stiffens up a little for sandwiches (it's a soft as a cloud right now), but it's AMAZING with some butter right now!! Bookmarking. Not sure if it would have worked with doing the water and yeast first, but definitely worked by following the bread machine instructions. Thanks!!!
Made this with wheat flour and turbinado sugar, used the dough setting on my bread machine, then let it rise again, sprayed the top with olive oil spray, and baked for 25 minutes or so on 375. Perfect!
An excellent loaf, especially with spaghetti and other italian dishes.
Easy recipe - great results! I did double up on the thyme and rosemary as we like our bread really "herby." We have a Mr. Coffee BreadMaker extra lrg 2 lb. capacity and we made this on setting 3 for light crust. This bread, combined with a good quality olive oil, makes an excellent appetizer. I plan on making this frequently!
This bread smells amazing and tastes amazing! I was worried about the thyme being too much, but it wasn’t perfect. I will be making this again for sure!
So easy and soft!!! I used 2 cups bread flour and 1 cup whole wheat. I loaded my bread machine according to the machine directions and cooked on medium setting. Soooo good!!!
I will absolutely make this again! It is delicious and as per the name it is really easy. I put in the yeast at the beginning instead of following the manufacturer's instructions. For substitutions: I used 3 small springs of fresh rosemary and about a teaspoon of fresh thyme. I set my machine to make a 1.5lb loaf on the "sweetbread" mode. I also let the bread sit in the machine for 30 minutes prior to removing it.
Tasted great! Made in my West Bend bread machine. No substitutions, but I followed my machine's instructions for what order to put the ingredients in. Excellent flavor, I'll definitely make this again. Pic shows loaf after a few slices have been cut off (and eaten)!
My family fights over this bread. It takes 3 hours to cook in my bread maker, but it's worth the wait. I like it a bit more brown, so I set the machine to medium. Yummy. Goes with everything.
quick and quite good
My family and I love it! Had it with our roast dinner for Christmas!
Wow! Super easy and so delicious!! I came looking for a rosemary and olive oil recipe for my new bread machine. Found this one and I am so glad I came upon it first. I’ve made 3 loaves of it so far, every single one of them perfect and delicious. It bakes up nice and high, and light and soft. I want to try it with a mix of whole wheat flour next. I even want to make little rolls so I can freeze them and have them available anytime. I’ve used the bread for sandwiches, and even had a hamburger on two slices instead of a bun. I have a Cuisinart compact machine, so I put the ingredients in according to the machine’s directions. I did not proof the yeast separately, just made a well in the top of the flour. I was careful to heat the water to between 97°F and 110°F each time, and to measure exactly - I’ve found the flour so much easier to just measure by weight right into a bowl set on a small digital kitchen scale scale (be sure to zero out the bowl weight first!) (The gram weight of different flours by cup is usually listed on the flour bag.) Anyone who has read reviews of the Cuisinart compact machine will tell you not to go over the 3 cup flour limit for 1.5 lb bread. Believe me, properly done, this recipe will give you a loaf that fills the 2lb pan. This is an awesome base recipe for rosemary and olive oil bread.
This recipe was so good. My daughter made this tonight, her first time making bread, It was delicious! !!!!!
LOVED IT!! I followed the pre-proffing of yeast and somehow it did not come out good (didn't rise..too heavy...just not perfect) however my second load I just did liquid, dry ingredients, fresh rosemary, and yeast last...well it was amazing. I also cut the salt to 1 teaspoon as it was too salty for us with 1 1/2.
i followed directions exactly, but my bread maker did not cook it through. it seemed like too much liquid to flour , but with all the good reviews i just went with it. it seemed to require a lot of oil compared to other recipes i've used. i was able to salvage it by baking in the oven at 375 for another 20 minutes. i used the "regular" bread setting on my machine. i really enjoyed the flavor. i will make again, just not sure how. either i will bake it entirely in oven, or just know to finish it there. or maybe i'll just take the idea of the seasonings and add to a tried and true white bread or french bread recipe i already have.
Doubled the recipe figured if I was going to spend four hours to let it raise might as well ma Ke some for freezer! Worked great ! Will make it again.
Delicious. My bread machine broke down during the first kneading cycle, so I finished by hand. I've made this twice now and will be making again for sure.
This was super easy and delicious.....next time I may DOUBLE the rosemary......I used fresh rosemary! Crusty crust.....soft inside! Small loaf....about 1 lb........making more tonight because it was such a hit!
This recipe is amazing. I have made it several times and love it.
This is my husband's favorite. I get a "she loves me" nod of appreciation every time I make it for him! So delicious and light!
