Garlic Yeast Bread

Total Time

Prep: 10 min. Bake: 3 hours


1 loaf,(1 pound)

"I like to use slices of this tender garlic bread to make roast beef sandwiches," remarks Sharen Clark of Sunnyside, Washington. "With its golden crust and wonderful Italian flavor, it's also a nice accompaniment to spaghetti and other pasta dishes."


  • 2/3 cup water (70° to 80°)
  • 2 teaspoons butter, softened
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1-3/4 teaspoons active dry yeast


  1. In bread machine pan, place all ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select basic bread setting. Choose crust color and loaf size if available. Bake according to bread machine directions (check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water or flour if needed).

    Wonderful flavor! I didn't use a bread machine. Just proofed the yeast in the water with a pinch of sugar and added all the ingredients together after the yeast was ready. I use alot of the bread machine recipes without changing a thing.Always works fine.
