TUSCAN HERB FRENCH BREAD INGREDIENTS & SUBSTITIONS

  • Olive Oil – Only buy extra virgin olive oil, first cold press and not in a clear glass bottle. This olive oil is great
  • Herbs – In this recipe you can either use dried or fresh herbs.
  • Water
  • Sea Salt
  • Garlic Powder
  • Sugar – We’ve made this with granulated sugar and also cane sugar, both are great.
  • Instant Dry Yeast – For any bread machine recipe, you’ll want to use Instant Yeast! Yeast is in stock right now.
  • All Purpose Flour – This is the number one thing I love most about this recipe, it calls for all purpose flour! We use King Arthur’s Flour!

 

Can I use other flours? Although I have yet to try using other flours, I’ve had a few people mention using bread flour instead of AP flour. And also someone mentioned using half AP and Whole Wheat. 

Can I use fresh herbs? Yes, substitute the dried herbs for a combined mixture of two tablespoons a little heavier on the rosemary side – chopped herbs.

HOW TO MAKE TUSCAN HERB FRENCH BREAD IN THE BREAD MACHINE

Pull out your bread machine, plug in and open the lid.
 
In a small bowl stir your dried(or fresh) herbs and olive oil together. Set aside.
 
Pour the ingredients into the basket of the bread machine in this order; Water, Salt, Sugar, Yeast*, Olive Oil mixture and then Flour.
 
*Most bread machines and instant yeast do not require you to set the yeast so be sure to read your manual and the back of the yeast. I know my bread machine does not and neither does the Instant Yeast I use.
 
Close the lid; set your machine to French setting, 1.5 lb loaf and light crust. Click start and you’ll have beautiful fresh flavorful bread in about 3 1/2 hours.
 
When the bread is done, carefully remove it from the basket and let sit on counter for 5 min.

Serve warm or cold, do as you wish. Just store it properly for freshness and so it doesn’t go stale quickly.

It will last about 3-4 days stored in a cloth bag in a dark area of your kitchen or pantry.

If you don’t have a cloth bag or a bread container, a freezer size ziplock bag works just as good.

HELPFUL KITCHEN TOOLS:

  • Bread Machine is essential for this recipe and I know they were selling off the shelves back in Spring but good news they’re in stock again and would make a great gift. 
  • These are the Measuring Spoons and Cups I own and they are great and on sale right now. 
  • Bread Container or Cloth Bag for storing your bread.
  • Bread Slicer, I just put this in my cart as it’d make cutting the bread so easy!

We’ve been making our own bread for a while now and it’s been especially great during this year.

It’s not loaded with sugar or preservatives, and no packaging which is another important thing for me.

This recipe was delicious! I followed the directions, with a couple exceptions. I used bread flour, and I used bread machine yeast that I added as the final ingredient. Will definitely make this recipe again! Thank you!
