Italian Bread

Photo: TLCTimFL

Bread Machine Recipe: 1 1/2lb loaf. I've adjusted this recipe over the years. It creates a very moist Italian bread which is great for sandwiches, toast, or even dipping Note: bread machine success is all about the exact amount of liquid vs dry. Measure very accurately and never allow salt to come into contact with yeast while adding.

Cook Time:


  • 1 cup(s) water warm
  • 1 teaspoon(s) salt

  • 3 cup(s) bread machine flour
  • 2 teaspoon(s) active dry yeast


  1. Add ingredients as directed by your bread machine manufacturer or as listed in my ingredients list. Note: Salt and yeast should never be put in together.

  2. Set the machine on basic with a light crust

  3. Cool bread on wire rack. Crust will be crispy. Place in a plastic bag or container to soften crust.
