Rosemary & Sun-dried Tomato Loaf

Today before work i decided to do a little bread baking. Not sure where this sudden energy came from, but maybe I was paying for later whilst I was cycling to work. I also have a new obsession for rosemary and this bread smells so lovely!

What You Need:

250g White Bread Flour, 7g Dried Yeast, 7 sun dried tomatoes chopped, 50g parmesan cheese, 7 sprigs of rosemary, 200ml of warm water.

Preheat the oven to 230C.

Mix the flour, yeast and water in a bowl with a spoon to form a ball. Leave for 5 minutes to rest. Then take the dough to a floured surface and kneed for around 10-15 minutes until smooth. With the ball of dough roll out into a long rectangle shape. Sprinkle all the ingredients evenly over the dough, as if you are putting the toppings on a pizza. Then roll the dough up into a large sausage shape. Cut the sausage into six and arrange in a greased loaf tin, with the inside swirl facing up. Cover and leave in a warm place to prove for 40 minutes. Pop into the oven and bake for 20 minutes. Once done cool and then eat! (^-^)

  1. This bread sounds delicious! I don’t bake much bread, but I might have to give this a try.

    Your bread looks great! I love how you formed the loaf.

  3. I love the swirls. Perhaps you could do this design for a cinnamon and raisin loaf? Classic and delicious. I bake bread too, but more of the rustic hearth sort. There’s something exciting about watching bread come alive because of the yeast.

  5. mmmm…this looks amazing! It would be great with pasta, a fancy cheese, or perhaps some olive tapenade…

  6. Oh, this bread recipe sounds very yummy. One day, when I’ve perfected the basics of bread making, I might attempt this recipe. Thanks for sharing!

  7. This looks wonderful!

  8. I am a regular bread baker, baking 2 loaves every week or so–with a regular routine, bread baking is not much work though you do need to be around while the yeast are doing their work. But I can take a proofing dough with me in a plastic bag (even on a bicycle) and wherever I am I let the dough rest. I can punch it down through the plastic bag.
    When I get home, it is ready to shape, rise again and out of the oven in 45 minutes.
