This one just sounded so good, I had to make it. I had mom’s kitchen smelling like delicious fresh bread for days and days.
Ingredients went into the bread machine in the following order: 1 1/8 cups water, 1 1/2 tablespoons walnut oil, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, 3 cups bread flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, 1 tablespoon gluten, 1 teaspoon dried marjoram, 1 teaspoon dried basil, 1 teaspoon dried tarragon and 2 1/2 teaspoons bread machine yeast. This loaf can be made using the medium or dark crust settings (I used medium) and the basic cycle.
This smelled really great; it rose very well, with a high, rounded top. As it baked, we kept coming up with ideas on how to best use it, deciding that toasted cheese sandwiches dipped into tomato soup would be best.
I really do wish I had remembered to take pictures. The loaf was a beautiful white bread with herbs throughout the loaf. It was really pretty. We made our grilled cheese sandwiches with a blend of sharp cheddar cheese and a white cheddar-Italian truffle cheese I picked up the other day. It was really good.
