Rosemary Bread | Recipe

This recipe is for a favorite bread, sometimes it doesn’t last a day at my house! I like to serve it with lasagna, pasta, soups, and salad.  Dip the bread in olive oil and spices.

Rosemary Bread

  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons white sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon dried rosemary
  • 2 1/2 cups bread flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast

Add water and oil to the bread machine pan, add flour followed by dry ingredients. Create a well in the middle and add the yeast. Or follow the directions of your bread machine. Use the dough or white bread setting on your machine.

Option: Use the dough setting on the bread machine. Remove dough from the pan and add to a lightly greased loaf pan, allow to rise for 30 – 40 minutes and bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes or until golden brown. I’ve always had the best results with baking the recipe this way. I also prefer the shape of the loaf pan as opposed to the bread machine’s shape.

What’s your favorite bread machine recipe?

      Hi Meghan, Thanks for your question! My machine makes 1.5 and 2 pound loaves. With this recipe I would say 1.5 pound. Hope this helps. Let me know how it turns out!

      Hi Vicki, I have never tried making this without a bread machine. You could add these spices to one of your favorite recipes that you use without a bread machine. Please let me know if you give it a try.

    I guess I should clarify what I wrote above, instead of bread flour I used AP flour. If anyone every made home made bread you know that you have to knead the dough about ten minutes or until the dough is smooth and no longer sticky. Let rise until double in size then punch down, let dough rest about ten minutes then shape into loaf pan. When double in size again bake as recipe say, I baked mine at 350 for about 30 minutes. The bread came out so tender and so delicious!

    I came across this recipe on Pinterest and I made it today in my bread machine. It tastes great! This will be my new go-to dish for a potluck or dinner party.

    I did not have rosemary so I put a little extra Italian seasoning. This was a wonderful recipe – light, fluffy and delicious. Only my third loaf and definitely my best! thanks

    I have a question. If I want to make the bread using the option you gave, when I put the dough in and use the dough option on my machine… Do I pull it out before it’s done or what should I do? Thanks, probably a dumb question. Just unclear!

    Love, love, love, this recipe!!!! Thank you for sharing it. I made it for a cookout this past weekend and it was a hit;)!! Now I am making two more loaves as requested by our friends for more.

    If I don’t want to make this in the oven, how do u use my bread machine for the whole thing. Can I still use active dry yeast….

    I just had to let you know this bread is FANTASTIC! I have made it several times, and have even served it to guests a few times. They always rave about it! I have been so disappointed in the lack of flavor of many bread recipes I have tried, but this one is so delicious. I make it the way you recommend- dough setting in the bread machine, and then finish in the oven. It comes out with a nice, hard crust and soft inside. Perfect.

    After using the bread machine on dough setting, and when allowing it to rise before placing in the oven– do you cover it?

    I know this post is old, but I just wanted to say that I really enjoy this bread! I found it on pintrest and come back to it often when I am making soups! Thank you for the recipe~

    Wonderful! Made this today to go with a yummy beef stew–perfect combination for a chilly rainy evening. Made it entirely in my Zojirushi bread maker. Used all-purpose flour, since I didn’t have bread flour, but will make it again with bread flour, since I detected a little elasticity. Only used 1/4 tsp GROUND rosemary (Penzeys), but doubled the Italian seasoning (also Penzeys) to 1/2 tsp. Thank you for a great recipe! PS. Don’t let the lack of bread flour keep you from trying this recipe. It’s a keeper.

      What setting did you use on your bread machine? I wanted to try making this in mine (brand new, same machine), but am still so new to using it for baking too…

      • Lindsay says:

        I use the basic white bread setting. All machines are different, so it might be a good idea to compare it to the recipes that came with the machine and see what is most similar and what settings go along with it.

    This is a great recipe. I changed it up the second time & tried coconut oil instead of olive oil & my family liked it that way too. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi, just wanted to say thank you for this recipe. I use it as is or without the black pepper, (I don’t like the taste much, but hubby does) as a bread to serve wth dinner. Without the spices it makes an excellent white sandwich bread. Sometimes I add a 1/2 cup of 10 grain cereal to it for a bit more texture and fiber. I buy my 10 grain cereal from an Amish bulk food store and find that I don’t have to add any extra water nor decrease the flour. I don’t know if this would work for other types though.
