Flavorful Herb Bread

This bread is one of my favorites. It has a wonderful texture and slices beautifully, and the flavor of the herbs really comes through. (Psst—If you don't have a bread machine on hand, learn how to make bread without one!) —Gerri Hamilton, Kingsville, Ontario

    Really wish that there were steps where others without the bread machine could make it, it sounds like it would be delicious. :(

    The settings on bread machines bake the bread for a programmed amount of time; then signal when the cycle is over. I LOVE my machine!

    I'd love to make this bread in the traditional fashion (don't have a bread machine), but the instructions don't say how long the bread is suppose to bake (just says "bake according to bread machine directions." How long is that?

    Best bread ever. My daughter-in-law had to make it for me ,as I don't have a bread machine and there were no manual directions. It's especially good toasted and slathered with butter-(OK I know that's not healthy- but it's delicious!)

    Digital scales are really cheap these days. Cups and teaspoons are inaccurate for the weighing of ingredients. It doesn't take too much more time to record the weight for a recipe. The results are so much better. Please do it. Thanks
