Ladies and Gentlemen, we have bread.

Oh no bread machine. You can’t keep me down.

I’m blaming yesterday’s disaster on the book that came with the bread machine. Never again will I follow one of those recipes.

This morning I went with a recipe for tomato basil bread that I’ve had bookmarked for awhile in hopes that I’d eventually get a bread machine. It turned out beautifully and the husband gave it two thumbs up. I haven’t tried it yet but it smells really good.

Tomato Basil Bread
adapted from: Taste of Home

1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
1/4 cup warm milk
2 tablespoons olive
1 tablespoon sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1-1/2 teaspoons dried basil
1 teaspoon dried marjoram
1 teaspoon dried thyme
3 cups all-purpose flour
1-3/4 teaspoons active dry yeast

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

Yield: 1 loaf (about 1-1/2 pounds).

    This looks good. Have you tried the Tomato Basil bread from Panera, if you have those restaurants in your area? That’s awesome bread!! However, the one thing I like best about the Panera bread is the crust. It’s got a sweet taste to it, but I have no idea how they do it!!
