Herb Bread

Ok so I said I would document the messes and successes.  Welcome MESS!  Now if I would have read the recipe all the way through I could have prevented this flop.  So I will post the recipe because it wasn't the recipes fault it was mine.  The recipe states that if making a small loaf use rapid bake on the bread machine.  Well I made a medium loaf, which was supposed to bake on the standard setting, and of course I saw Rapid Bake first and that's what I did!  OOPS!   So moral of the directions!!!!   This may have been a flop for dinner that night, but it made excellent croutons.

MEDIUM LOAF (Bread Machine)

7/8to 1 cup milk
1 1/2 T. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. salt
3 T. butter
1/2 cup chopped onion
3 cups bread flour
1/2 tsp. dried dill
1/2 tsp. dried basil
1/2 tsp. dried rosemary
2 tsp. active dry yeast

  1. Place all ingredients in bread pan, using the least amount of liquid listed in the recipe.  Select Medium Crust and press Start.
  2. Observe the dough as it kneads.  After 5 to 10 minutes, if appears dry add more liquid 1 T. at a time until smooth, soft, pliable ball forms.
  3. After baking cycle ends, remove bread from pan, place on wire rack, and allow to cool 1 hour before slicing.
