Parmesan Herb Loaf Recipe

Parmesan Herb Loaf Recipe

"This moist loaf is one of my very best quick bread recipes. I like to serve slices accompanied by individual ramekins filled with extra virgin olive oil infused with herbs for dipping," says Dianne Culley of Nesbit, Mississippi.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour

Directions
