I've been making this easy bread for years. It goes great with a casserole, soup or stew. I've taken it to many picnics and potluck suppers. Many people have asked for the recipe, and they're always surprised at how simple it is to make!


  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1/2 cup warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour, divided


  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add the milk, butter, sugar, rosemary, salt, dill, garlic powder, onion and 1 cup of flour. Beat until smooth. Add the remaining flour and stir for about 1 minute.
  2. Transfer to a greased bowl. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  3. Stir the batter down, about 25 strokes. Spread into a greased 8x4-in. loaf pan. Cover and let rise until almost doubled, about 15 minutes.
  4. Bake at 375° for 40-45 minutes. Remove from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm.
