The other night I decided to make a quick bread to go with our beef stew. I wanted something that would be crusty and thick. Also, it had to hold up well against a hearty stew. I ended up mixing up a Rosemary & Thyme Quick Bread. It was a pretty basic recipe that turned out to be a great little bread to whip together. I loved how it turned out golden brown. I also loved that my second child couldn’t stop eating it and telling me how much he loved it. He is a lover of carbs in all forms, just like his momma.
What You Need:
2 Cups of Bread Flour
2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon of Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Rosemary (dried)
1/2 Teaspoon Thyme (dried)
1 Tablespoon Sugar
4 Tablespoons of Unsalted Butter Melted
1 Cup Milk
1 Tablespoon Flour (for rolling dough)
1 Teaspoon Melted Butter (for buttering underneath dough on cooking sheet)
2 Teaspoon Melted Butter (for buttering TOP of dough)
How To Put It Together:
Sift all the dry ingredients together into a bowl. Then add in your melted butter & milk. Mix together, I used my hands and brought it all together. Then put it on a very lightly floured board, I use my wooden dining table. Shape into an oblong bread.
Put it onto a buttered cooking sheet. Then brush the top with some melted butter. Place in a preheated oven for 25 minutes (should be brown on top) at 425 degrees.
Serve with more butter. What? I love butter. I mean seriously I love butter, I have an addiction.
