Herb and Walnut Bread

Try one recipe from the new bought breadmachine recipe book, but I adjust it a little by replacing the fresh herbs with dried ones(I use what's available in my kitchen). As I can't get hold of fresh rosemary that day so I sprinkle some dried rosemary on top of the loaf when the bread was baking half way in the machine. The bread still linger the rosemary fragrant when I reheat the balance bread from freezer after a few days, the fragrant brought out nice appetite...


185ml/ 3/4 cup milk

105ml/1/2 cup water

3tbsp extra virgin olive oil

450g/ 3 cups bread flour

50g/1/2 cup chopped walnut

1tsp garlic powder

2 tsp dried mix herbs

11/2 tsp salt

2 tsp sugar

1tsp instant yeast

1. Pour the milk,water and olive oil into the bread machine pan. If the instruction for your machine specify that the yeast is to be placed in the pan first, reverse the order in which you add the liquid and dry ingredients.

2. Set the bread machine to basic/normal setting, medium crust, then press Start.

3. About 1 hour before the cycle end, sprinkle a little salt and dried rosemary on top of the loaf(I like the smell of rosemary on baking bread, I think the fragrant will help increase the appetite)

4. Remove the bread at the end of the cycle and turn out on to a wire rack to cool.

I hope you had some lovely cheese to go with it! The perfect combination I think!

Nice thin slices of home-made bread, ah..I might have to do more bread now that the price here for a loaf has increased by RM0.05each 100g, so silly, just because price of sugar goes up. Real opportunist those in the bread industry, as if sugar is the sole main ingredient of bread making that makes the price directly linked.

Sorry for the rant, hahah..
