Herbed Buttery Bubble Bread
You have to try this one. Even I could manage this recipe and I am not always successful in my bread making endeavors. Seems simple enough when I start measuring and get all excited about making bread and then....my own disasters strike....
Did I overheat the water for the yeast? Why yes, yes I did.
Hello? Try using a thermometer. (Finally bought one ) I have killed more batches of yeast than I'd care to remember.
But this one is...the one. And I just had to heat milk to a proper temperature and ...well, read on. This one is a success.
This will make one large round loaf
3 – 3 ½ c flour
2 T sugar
1.5 t salt
1.25 oz yeast (1 pkg)
1 ¼ c milk
2 T vegetable oil
1/4 c melted butter or margarine
2 T Parmesan
1 T sesame seeds
1 t garlic salt
1/2 t paprika
1/2 t parsley
1/2 t rosemary
1/2 t thyme
Lightly grease a 2 quart deep round casserole
In a large bowl combine 1 c flour, sugar, salt and yeast
In small saucepan heat milk and vegetable oil until very warm (120 -130 F)
Add egg and warm liquid to flour mixture. With electric mixer beat 30 sec
at low speed, 3 min at medium speed.
With wooden spoon, stir in remaining flour to make a soft dough.
Turn dough out onto lightly floured board. Knead until smooth and elastic,
about 1-2 min
Place dough in warm greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover; let rise
in warm place, free from draft, until doubled in bulk, 45-60 min
Punch down dough. Pinch off walnut-size balls of dough and dip in melted
butter. Place in prepared casserole forming one layer
Combine cheese, seeds, garlic salt, paprika, and herbs. Sprinkle half over
layer of bubbles. Make a second layer of buttered bubbles; pour remaining
butter over bubbles, sprinkle with remaining seasoning mixture.
Cover and let rise in warm place, free from draft, until light and bubbles almost reach top of casserole, 30 - 45 min
Just before rising time is up, preheat oven to 400 F. Bake 25-30 minutes, or
until top sounds hollow when lightly tapped.
Cool in pan 10 min; loosen from pan with spatula and remove; serve warm.
This is so buttery that you will not need to add anything to this bread. We've had it with a roasted chicken and with soup the next day.
Pulls apart into little roll sized pieces........
Another keeper....just wish I knew where the recipe came from...it was haunting one of my file folders for awhile. Hmmmmmmmmm
Interesting week, weather-wise. On Tuesday evening we were able to sit outside enjoying a good dinner as the temperatures were Springlike. ...
