Rosemary Herb Bread

I love this bread. I have made this recipe many times. It's super easy and it's all done by my indispensable bread machine! Yup, this is done in a bread machine. The smell of freshly made bread is really something. I came across this recipe when I was browsing on the website "". Since I have the herbs used in this recipe, rosemary and thyme growing at my backyard, I thought that I would give this recipe a try, and also after reading some good reviews about this bread. Even though I have tried many other recipes, I would still come back to this. Thank you "Leigh Serth" for submitting this recipe. If you do not own a bread machine, maybe you can try the manual method of making bread. Let me know how it turns out! I made this bread last night, and this morning, make a grill sandwich for my children and their cousins who were sleeping over. They enjoyed it very much. Try it, it's really, really easy! The texture is soft. When eaten warm immediately after baking, you can really enjoy the crispy crust, the soft fluffy texture and the wonderful fragrant of the herbs. It is great eaten with kaya or your favourite jam. My kids love to dip this bread in a bowl of mushroom soup. It really goes well together, a fragrant savoury bread with a bowl of hot mushroom soup. If there are any leftover , I usually just freeze it individually packed in plastic wrap and just steam it for about 2 to 3 minutes and it will be soft again! Try this recipe !
