I made this herb bread to bring at friends’ for supper. It tasted good, although, being made from 100% fresh ground wheat, it already has it’s nice strong wheat taste. Everyone still enjoyed it though! That night for a snack, we made pizza-buns using this bread and that was so good!! A good bread for the occasional variety.


Herb Bread

1 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
2 tsp salt
1/2 cup water
1 tsp sugar
1 Tbsp yeast
4-5 cups wheat/spelt flour
1/4 tsp lecithin (optional)
3/4 Tbsp gluten flour
1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp thyme
1 Tbsp dehydrated onions
1/2 tsp basil
1/4 tsp parsley
1/4 tsp rosemary
1/2 tsp savory
pinch ginger

Heat up the milk, butter, 1/4 cup sugar and salt until warm. Let it cool. Dissolve yeast, water and 1 tsp sugar, let sit 5 minutes. Mix together milk and yeast mixtures in large bowl. Add remaining ingredients, adding flour until the dough is no longer sticky. Knead to develop the gluten. Depending if you knead by machine or hand, it may take 8-12 minutes. Place in a slightly greased bowl, cover, let rise until it doubles in volume (about 1hr). Punch down, let rise another 30-45 min until it has risen again. Punch down, shape into a loaf. Place in a greased bread pan, cover and let rise until doubled. Bake at 375 for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cover the top with foil paper towards the end of cooking time if the crusts get darker than desired. Cool completely on cooling rack.
