"A quick, easy bread that works well with Italian foods and pastas. Try forming the dough into a round ball or a long loaf for French bread." — Dee

warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
2 1/4 teaspoons
active dry yeast
2 1/2 cups
Wonderful. Tastes like true European bread that one could get in a bakery or very nice restaurant.
For those who had problems with dryness, I used 2 cups of flour to start with, as stated in the recipe, and then added until the dough felt right. Definitely not the entire half cup, perhaps a quarter cup or slightly less.
I let it rise about an hour and a half.
Also, I had a pan of water at the bottom of the often to provide moisture for the first twenty minutes or so of baking. I don't have anything to mist with, so I relied entirely on that method.
Ended up with a great crust and soft tasty inside. All in all, it's pretty addictive, and I feel I could almost eat a whole loaf in one night.
I made this recipe and it turned out very dry. In fact, I couldnt even form the dough into one loaf, I had to make several small rolls. I think it calls for too much flour
This was the easiest yeast bread I've ever made. It makes a fairly small loaf so if your having company I would recommend making two loaves. I took this to a church dinner and there was none left at the end of the evening.
Excellent bread! Moist, chewy, and flavorful. For all of the dry bread reviews, here is the trick ... add more water slowly, a little at a time, until the bread forms a ball. The ball should be sticky but not too sticky. This will prevent your bread from becoming dry or having too much flour in the recipe. bread recipes are tricky and the liquid amount varies depeding on where you live and what time of year it is. We live in Arizona and I used 1 cup of water.
I loved this recipe! I added rosemary and a little more olive oil. It tasted wonderful. It tasted so good with grilled vegetable sandwiches!
When I made this bread, I only used 2 cups of flour; I got a delicious and moist loaf of bread! I also let it rise a bit longer than recommended, just because I had the time. Excellent bread, will definately make again, possibly to use as a pizza crust.
this is a good bread tho i did add all the flour and had to add about 4 more TBSP of warm water...i added vital wheat gluten coz i do that with ALL the yeast breads i make...but it turned out to be a good loaf of bread with great texture...and not too big so good for just me...hehe I LUV fresh bread!!!...i spritzed/added ice cubes to the oven when it was baking and the crust is nice and crusty/crispy just like i like it and used extra virgin olive oil coz that is all i had...i always use olive oil instead of any other kind...i don't even buy other oils...so i really liked this recipe and will forsure make it again...thanks for the recipe...
I tried this recipe twice and it turned out very dry both times.
