I always thought that making homemade bread was difficult, but it’s really not! Especially when I knead the dough with my Kitchenaid mixer. If you don’t have one, I highly recommend it.

  • 1
    .25 oz. package active dry yeast
  • 1 Cup
    warm water (110 degrees F)
  • 1 Tablespoon
  • 2 Tablespoons
    olive oil
  • 1/2 Tablespoon
  • 1/2 Tablespoon
    dried basil
  • 1/2 Tablespoon
    dried oregano
  • 1/2 Teaspoon
    garlic powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon
    onion powder
  • 1/4 Cup
    grated parmesan cheese
  • 3 Cups
    bread flour


  1. Mix yeast, warm water, and white sugar together in a large bowl. Set aside for five minutes, or until mixture becomes foamy.

  2. Stir olive oil, salt, herbs, garlic powder, onion powder, cheese, and 1 1/2 cups flour into the yeast mixture. Gradually mix in the next 1 1/2 cups of flour. Dough will be stiff.

  3. Knead dough for 5 to 10 minutes, or until it is smooth and rubbery. (If using a mixer, only knead for a few minutes.) Place in an oiled bowl, and turn to cover the surface of the dough with oil. Cover with a damp linen dish towel. Allow to rise for one hour, or until the dough has doubled in size.

  4. Punch dough down to release all the air. Shape into a loaf. Place loaf on a greased cookie sheet, or into a greased 9 x 5 inch loaf pan. Allow to rise until doubled in size, about a 30 minutes.

  5. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 35 minutes. Remove loaf from pan, and let cool on wire racks for at least 15 minutes before slicing.

    Wonderful bread! I love the texture of the loaf. Made 2 loaves but added a teaspoon of thyme to one (I liked the thyme loaf more). Went very well with my chicken salad!
