Instructions – Bread Machine – Italian Herb Bread

  • Mix the water and instant nonfat milk powder first.
  • Pour this instant milk into the bread pan and then add the other ingredients. Place the bread machine yeast in last and the yeast should not touch the liquid (until the bread machine is turned on and the ingredients start to be mixed together).
  • Start the machine going after checking the settings.
  • After the FINAL kneading cycle and before the baking cycle commences, sprinkle some dried Italian herb seasoning on top of the dough.
  • After the bread machine has finished baking the bread, remove the bread and place it on a cooling rack. Use oven mitts when removing the bread machine container as it will be very hot!
  • In our Sunbeam bread machine, the baking takes about 3 hours for a 2 pound bread at the light color & basic bread settings. However, some machines can differ and you don’t want to be away from home when the bread machine “finished” alarm goes off! Your bread machine should show you the length of the baking time after you have entered the settings into the machine. This will allow you to know when to be in the kitchen in order to remove the bread.

Tips – Bread Machine – Italian Herb Bread

  • If you try to substitute garlic powder for the onion powder, this recipe might not work as well. Garlic inhibits yeast growth.
  • Italian seasoning is often made from the following herbs; basil, marjoram, oregano, rosemary, sage and thyme. You can find bottles of dried Italian herb seasoning in the supermarket. Or you can concoct your own mixture out of your favorite dried Italian herbs.
  • If you are growing these herbs at home, you can make your own fresh Italian seasoning. This Italian herb bread will taste even better if you add your own home grown ingredients!
