  • Bread Machine


  • cup water lukewarm
  • cup cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup bread flour
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • tsp bread machine yeast
  • 1 tbsp plus 1 tsp olive oil
  • tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt


  • Add all the bread ingredients to the special pan in order recommended by your bread machine manufacturer. Let's knead.
  • Set to rapid setting and medium crust on the appliance. Press start.
  • When ready, turn the bread out onto a rack to cool.
  • Slice and enjoy.


Tip: When your bread cooker has been kneading for a few minutes, check the dough. If it will be too stiff, add a little bit of water and continue checking until it seems soft enough. If too wet, add more flour in small amounts until it seems to be soft yet not sticky.
