Herb & Spice Olive Oil Bread | Eggless Baking

This bread was baked around the time I did my Nutella Swirl Bread. Ever since its been too hot around here to even approach the oven!! I am glad I saved this recipe in my blog drafts, as I have been receiving so many requests from friends for more bread recipes:) Its a very simple loaf to bake, and is so very flavorful too. Just toss in your favorite herbs and spices and you are good to go.

2 1/2 tsp yeast
2 tsp sugar
1 cup warm water
2 tbsp olive oil
2 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tbsp herb and spice blend
1 tsp salt

  1. Add the yeast and sugar to the warm water. Cover and allow to proof for 7 minutes.
  2. Stir in the olive oil. 
  3. Add the flour, herb and spice blend of choice and the salt. 
  4. Mix to form a shaggy dough. If the dough is too wet at this stage add some more about one tablespoon at a time, but no more than a 1/4 cup.
  5. Place the dough in a well oiled bowl, cover, and allow to proof, at least an hour.
  6. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface, knead for about 7 minutes, then form into a loaf and place in a prepared loaf pan. 
  7. Cover very lightly with cling film and let sit until the loaf is doubles.  
  8. Bake in a preheated oven at 400° F for 10 minutes, then remove from oven, brush with the olive oil. 
  9. Return the loaf to the oven and bake for another 10 - 15 mins or until golden brown, 
  10. Cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.
