Parmesan cheese herb bread, (A Mediterranean Style Recipe)
( For bread machine 2Lb = 907 gr – Cuisine Art Convection Bread Maker )
Prep: 5 min
Cooking Time: 3.32min
French/Italian bread cycle
1 + 1/4 cup warm water
3 cups white flour
2/3 cup whole wheat flour
2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp milk
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp sesame seeds
1/2 tsp italian herb
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1 + 1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp wheat germ
2 tsp gluten
3 tsp yeast
Pour the luke warm water into the bread pan.
Add oil, milk and salt. Then add the flour and all dry ingredients.
On top of the flour pile make a small room for the yeast. Its like a well, so you can pour the yeast in it.
Make sure that yeast does not touch the liquid. It is critical putting the yeast well out of contact with the wet ingredients.
Try to remember when the bread machine beeps at the end of kneading cycle to remove the paddle. It doesn’t effect the bread taste or the paddle to leave it in there, it just puts a hole in the bottom. So if you care about your bread shape to be perfect, without a hole, remove the paddle. There are 3 crust settings; light, medium, dark. I prefer the lightest crust setting. Even the medium setting is too dark and crusty for my taste.
Tip: Remove the paddle at 1:59 time left, ( it will beep 6 times) for 2LB loaf
That means kneading cycle just finished, the dough will go rise.
