Rosemary Olive Oil Bread
Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup warm water (100-110 F)
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 2 tsp. active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3 Tbsp. fresh rosemary, chopped
  • ½ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1½ cups whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup bread flour + extra for kneading
  • 1 egg, whisked + 1 Tbsp. water, for egg wash
  • dried rosemary, for sprinkling
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, combine the warm water, sugar, and yeast. Let sit 10 minutes.
  2. Stir in the salt, rosemary, pepper, olive oil, and whole wheat flour. Add the bread flour and stir until the dough forms a ball. Knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth, adding more flour as necessary to prevent sticking.
  3. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl and cover. Rise in a warm area until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  4. Punch down the dough and form it into a round loaf. Place it on a greased cookie sheet, cover and rise until doubled in size, about 45 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Once the dough has risen, gently brush the top with egg wash and sprinkle with rosemary.
  6. Bake in preheated oven 20-25 minutes until the top is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped.
