Parmesan (Herb) Bread

I used the Best Bread Machine Bread recipe from and then made a few changes. It turned out to be so delicious! Make sure you follow the steps exactly.
  • 1 1/4 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 (.25 ounce) package yeast(or 2 1/4 teaspoons)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 1/2 cups bread flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan
  • butter
  • Optional ingredients:
    • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  1. Place the water, sugar and yeast in the pan of the bread machine. Let the yeast dissolve and foam for 10 minutes. 
  2. Add the oil, flour, cheese, (herbs), and salt to the yeast. Select Dough setting, and press Start.
  3. At the end of the final cycle, remove from bread machine to a lightly floured surface. Divide in half. Roll each portion into a 10-in. x 8-in. rectangle. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a short side; pinch seams to seal. Spray two 8 x 4 inch loaf pans. Place dough in pans, cover with a damp tea towel and let rise in a warm place for 30-45 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Place bread pans in oven and bake for 40 minutes or until golden brown. Baste with a small amount of butter.
