  • 1 Tbsp Dry Yeast
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 C warm water
  • 2 1/2 all-purpose flour all purpose, not bread
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp FRESH ROSEMARY chopped
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • coarse salt


  • Measure the water and add the yeast and sugar, allow the mixture to become bubbly, about 5-10 mins.
  • Mix 2 cups of flour and the salt.
  • Add one tablespoon of the fresh chopped rosemary and the yeast mixture. Mix together with bread hooks until smooth and elastic.
  • Add flour if necessary, but not too much - just until the dough cleans the sides of the bowl
  • Let dough rise in a warm place for one hour or so until doubled.
  • Punch down dough and divide in half.
  • It's still VERY sticky, and should be, don't knead flour into it. Shape the dough into 2 small rounded oval loaves. Place on parchment paper on a pan.
  • Let dough rest about 5 – 10 minutes.
  • Melt the butter and brush over the top of the loaves. Sprinkle remaining 1 Tablespoon of rosemary and coarse salt over the loaves.
  • Let loaves rise again until doubled, about 45 minutes. In the meantime preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until lightly browned.
