Herb & Garlic Bread

We are having our family birthday celebration on Monday/Family Day and I wanted to try out a different bread recipe ahead of time to have with dinner that day. Kim has requested spagetti and salad, and then cherry cheesecake for dessert.

The bread was nice and soft inside and had lots of flavour. Definitely something I will be making again and again!

In the bowl of my stand mixer, I added the flour, salt, sugar, yeast, minced garlic (not in picture), thyme, parsley and Italian seasoning.

I added the warm water….

And using my dough hook, mixed it until the dough came away from the sides of the bowl to form a ball.

I let it knead in the stand mixer for 5 minutes, until the all of dough was smooth.

I put the dough ball into a greased bowl, turning it once to coat top as well, and let it stand in a warm spot for one hour…

Until it doubled in size.

I shaped it into a loaf and cut slits across the top of the loaf.

I let it rise again for about 20 minutes and then baked it at 400 degrees for 25 minutes, until browned and cooked through.

I melted 2 tbsp. of margarine and mixed in the second amounts of minced garlic, Italian seasoning and parsley and then brushed the loaf with this mixture before returning it to the oven for an additional 10 minutes.

And here is the finished loaf. And yes, I will definitely be making this for our family birthday celebration… it was so good I might have to make 2 loaves!!!
