Rosemary Bread

Rosemary Bread


Hi everyone! I saw something like this on Pinterest (where else right?) but bread scares me a little, so I combined/adapted several recipes to come up with this. Give it a try and let me know what you think!


1 tablespoon active rise yeast(this is like one packet if you use that kind)
1 tablespoon sugar
1 cup warm water
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons fresh rosemary (chopped/crushed)
2 tablespoons butter



Place yeast, sugar and water in large bowl or food processor and mix slightly and allow mixture to become bubbly.

Mix in 1 T butter, salt, and 2 cups of flour and then 1 tablespoon of the fresh chopped rosemary.

Knead for about 10 minutes by hand or in food processor about 5 minutes until smooth and elastic.
Add more flour if necessary.

Oil a separate bowl, put dough in it and cover with a towel. Let the dough rise in a warm place for 1 hour or until doubled in size. 

Then Punch down dough and divide in half.

Let dough rest about 5 minutes.

Spray baking pan or cookie sheet with cooking spray. Shape the dough into whatever size/shape you are going to make.

Sprinkle remaining 1 Tablespoon of rosemary over the loaves and press lightly into the surface. Let the doug rise again for about 45 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until lightly browned.


Yum. So good. Enjoy!
