    • Bread Machine Garlic Bread Mix

      This savory garlic bread makes a delicious accompaniment to any pasta dish. Light, yet full of flavor, this bread is a favorite in our home!

      For a 1.5 pound Loaf You'll need:
      3 1/3 c. Bread Flour*
      1 Tbs Sugar
      1 1/4 tsp salt
      2 Tbs Dry Milk
      1 Tbs. Dried Parsley Flakes
      2 tsp Garlic Powder

      Combine all of the ingredients in a ziploc bag, mixing well to combine. Write the following instructions on the bag:

      To Make bread:

      Pour 1 1/4 c. Water (80F) into the bread machine pan
      Gently dump the contents of the bread machine mix onto the water
      add 2 Tbs butter (or margarine) to the corners of the bread pan on top of the flour mix.
      In the center of the mix, make a small well, add 1 1/2 tsp Bread Machine/ Fast Rise Yeast (OR 2 tsp regular yeast).

      Set the bread machine to the Basic (1.5 pound) loaf, with the desired bread crust color of your choice (light, med, dark).

      For a 2 pound Loaf you'll Need:
      4 cups Bread flour
      1 1/2 Tbs Sugar
      1 1/2 tsp salt
      2 Tbs Dry Milk
      1 1/2 Tbs. Dried Parsley Flakes
      1 Tbs Garlic Powder

      Combine all of the ingredients in a ziploc bag, mixing well to combine. Write the following instructions on the bag:

      To Make bread:
      Pour 1 1/2 c. water (80F) into the bread machine pan
      Gently dump the contents of the bread machine mix onto the water
      add 2 Tbs butter (or margarine) to the corners of the bread pan on top of the flour mix.
      In the center of the mix, make a small well, add 2 tsp Bread Machine/ Fast Rise Yeast (OR 2 1/4 tsp regular yeast).


      Set the bread machine to the Basic (1.5 pound) loaf, with the desired bread crust color of your choice (light, med, dark).



      *Bread Flour- Bread flour contains more gluten than regular all purpose flour. However, you can use all purpose flour in its place if you also add 1 tsp of Vital Wheat Gluten PER Cup of flour. So for 3 cups of all purpose flour you would also add 3 tsp of gluten. For 4 cups of all purpose flour, you would add 4 tsp of gluten. Wheat gluten is available in the baking aisle of most grocery stores (usually above the flour). It comes in a small box and should be stored in the fridge for increased longevity.

      Bread Machine Note:
      The Bread machine that I used for the bread (displayed in the photo) is the West Bend High Rise (dual paddle) model. Although this recipe should work fine in any Bread Machine.

      Don't have a Bread machine?- Here are the directions for making it by hand or by a mixer.

      Re: Do I really need parchment paper?

      I like to use parchment paper for all my baking. It's not a necessity, but it helps keep the baking sheets newer and keep from getting oil build up.
