Rosemary Bread Recipe

What you need:

1 Tbsp sugar
1c warm water
1 package active dry yeast (.25 oz)
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
2 Tbsp butter (softened)
2 Tbsp rosemary
3c flour
1 egg

  1. Mix sugar, yeast, and warm water in a bowl. Begin to stir, waiting for bubbling to show the yeast have gone to work. When bubbly, add salt, butter, 1 Tbsp rosemary, and 2c flour. Stir and add in flour as necessary.
  2. When you have a workable dough, knead 10 minutes.
  3. Coat a second bowl with olive oil, and let your dough rest in a warm spot until risen. It could take a bit…
  4. Punch down dough, split, and shape it into two loaves. Set them on a greased/oiled pan. Sprinkle rosemary on the loaves to taste. Optionally, sprinkle a little sea salt. Let rise!
  5. Pre-heat oven to 375F. Mix egg and water in a bowl, and use a brush to generously coat your loaves with the egg wash.
  6. Bake 15-20 minutes until brown.
  7. Enjoy!
