Romantic Rosemary or Lavender Bread
255 mins (prep 180, cooking 75)
8 ingredients
2 servings
Adapted from Gourmet magazine. I have had this one in my files for ages and decided to share. This is a great choice for a dinner party or a romantic meal. I tried this with dried herbs and used half the amount when fresh was not available (Herbes de Provence is also a nice choice - again, using half the amount as the fresh). Prep time includes 30 minutes of actual prep work and the rest of the time is rising time. This makes two round loaves, about 10 slices per loaf.
