Braided Italian Herb Bread



Ingredients :

  • 4 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • divided
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¾ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¾ teaspoon dried rosemary
  • ¾ cup milk
  • ½ cup water
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • Methods :

  • Combine 1 1/2 cups flour, sugar, yeast, basil, salt, oregano, garlic powder, and rosemary in a large bowl.
  • Combine milk, water, and butter in a small microwave-safe bowl. Heat in a microwave until butter melts, about 30 seconds. Pour over the flour mixture; beat until dough is just moistened. Add egg; beat until smooth. Stir in remaining 3 cups flour to form a soft dough.
  • Turn dough onto a floured surface such as a large cutting board or countertop. Knead until smooth and elastic, about 4 minutes. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
  • Divide dough into thirds. Shape each piece into a 15-inch rope. Transfer ropes to a greased baking sheet. Braid together. Pinch ends to seal; tuck under the braid. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 25 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Brush top of the braid with olive oil and sprinkle with basil.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet, or remove to a wire rack.
