I’ve had this bread recipe saved for about six months just waiting for a good bread baking day. That day came and after baking this gorgeous bread, I have to tell you it’s one of the best tasting breads I’ve had. It’s also made in the food processor, a different method from the traditional mixer or hand mixed variety. The combination of garlic and rosemary in this crusty loaf is marvelous. It makes two loaves, perfect for sharing.
I originally found this delicious bread recipe on Katie’s beautiful blog, Good Life Eats. If you aren’t a subscriber or follower, you really should be. She makes some truly marvelous recipes and her photos are absolutely drool worthy.
Katie used a 12-cup food processor for this recipe. My food processor is a bit smaller, a 10-cup, so I had to work in two batches to make this. I actually make my pizza dough in the food processor, so while I really haven’t made bread this way before, I’m definitely familiar with using a food processor for a bread-type dough.
I pretty much stuck to Katie’s recipe for this, making only these adjustments:
- I used SAF instant yeast instead of an envelope of yeast
- I didn’t have enough rosemary, so my measurement was closer to a heaping 1/4 cup
- I used home ground wheat flour my neighbor gave me (where Katie calls for the whole wheat)
- I worked in batches due to the size of my food processor
This bread has a nice rustic crust and a tender delicious crumb. Perfect warm with butter and makes at amazing toast the next morning! If sliced thinner, this would be a great sandwich bread as well. I kept one loaf for myself and gave the other to a friend of mine. I will definitely make this again, even if just to smell the fabulous aroma that filled my kitchen!
