Recipes for 1 lb-loaf bread machines, like for my Zojirushi 1-Pound-Loaf Programmable Mini Breadmaker, can be hard to find (most recipe books include recipes for 2 lb or larger loaves), so when one comes across a tasty recipe for a 1 lb. loaf, you stick with it!
I have made this recipe, which I’ve adapted from the Bread Machine Magic cookbook, several times, and my kids love it. It is simple to put the recipe together, and the bread comes out soft and delicious consistently. It tastes great with a little flavored olive oil (you can add some dried oregano and basil to the oil) drizzled on top.
Cheese Herb Bread (1 lb loaf)
– 1 cup milk or buttermilk
– 1 tablespoon olive oil
– 2 teaspoons sugar
– 1 teaspoon salt
– 2 cups bread flour (I use King Arthur Unbleached Bread Flour)
-1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese (freshly grated is best)
-1/4 teaspoon dried basil
– 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
– One and 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
Place all ingredients in the bread machine pan, starting with the liquid ingredients first. Before adding the yeast, make a small indentation in the top of the flour, and then pour the yeast into the indentation. Place the bread plan in the bread machine, and close the lid.
Set bread machine on regular bread and crust settings, and start bread cycle.
Once the bread has finished rising and baking (less than 4 hours later), allow it to cool before slicing.
