  1. In a small mixing bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
  2. Place the basil leaves and the olive oil in a blender or food processor and puree until smooth.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour with the salt. Add the yeast mixture, basil mixture and sun-dried tomatoes; beat together until well combined, about 3 minutes. Cover bowl with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  5. Lightly grease a 2 quart casserole dish or 5x9 inch loaf pan. Gently remix the batter with about 20 strokes of a wooden spoon and pour into the prepared pan. Let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 30 minutes.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the bottom of the loaf sounds hallow when tapped. Remove loaf from pan, place on a wire rack to cool and brush with melted butter.

This bread was quick, easy, and wonderful. I used about 1/2 & 1/2 w.w. flour and white flour to make it a little more hearty. I also baked it as a round loaf on a flat cooking sheet to give it...

This is better than any store bought bread from a specialty shop!! My husband and I could have eaten the entire loaf!!! A Winner!

I grow my own basil and it's always great to find new ways to use it.

This bread is very good with some additions. I think it needs more salt and next time I would increase this to 1 tsp. I added in chopped garlic and Parmesan cheese with the basil and sun-dried...
