You get the combined smell of rosemary AND freshly made bread. Your kitchen will smell wonderful!! This may be our best smelling bread machine recipe.

Since I haven’t grown rosemary in the garden (yet), I looked up rosemary online in order to see what the internet says about this herb. According to Wikipedia, rosemary “is an aromatic evergreen shrub… native to the Mediterranean and Asia”. In addition, “Rosemary leaves are used as a flavoring in foods, such as stuffing and roast lamb, pork, chicken, and turkey. Fresh or dried leaves are used in traditional Mediterranean cuisine. They have a bitter, astringent taste and a characteristic aroma which complements many cooked foods”.

Okay, enough internet knowledge! Back to great food. Rosemary is a great smelling herb used in many delicious Italian & Mediterranean dishes. It is perfect for providing bread with a wonderful smell & taste.

Optional – To make this bread look even more “authentic”, I sprinkled a tiny bit of rosemary on the top of the dough after the machine had finished kneading and before the baking had commenced (see pictures below). Don’t sprinkle too much rosemary because you don’t want the rosemary flavor to overwhelm things.

Bread Machine – Rosemary Bread – Ingredients for a 2 lb Bread Loaf

Bread Machine – Rosemary Bread – Instructions

  • Bread Machine settings – 2 pound loaf, light color and ”basic” bread setting.
  • Add all ingredients starting with the milk into the bread machine “bucket” (loaf pan).
  • Start the machine going after checking the settings.
  • After the bread machine has finished kneading and before the baking cycle commences, sprinkle some rosemary on top of the bread dough.
  • After the bread machine has finished, remove bread and place 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

  • As I said above… To make this bread look even more “authentic”, I sprinkled a tiny bit of rosemary on the top of the dough after the machine had finished kneading and before the baking had commenced (see pictures below). Don’t sprinkle too much rosemary because you don’t want the rosemary flavor to overwhelm things.
