Herb Skillet Bread


I grew up with my Grandmother and Mother making homemade bread almost for every meal. I still love homemade bread and although I don't make it for every meal, we really enjoy it when it is fresh from the oven. The Herb Skillet Bread recipe that I am making today is a very easy recipe and has a delicious flavor almost like a sour dough. No worries about what to do with the left overs, here at the cottage there are no left overs when this bread is on the table.

Ingredients
2 tablespoons yeast
2 tablespoons sugar
2-1/2 cups warm water
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon salt
2 teaspoons dried rosemary
2 teaspoons dried thyme leaves
1 teaspoons dried parsley
1 teaspoon dried basil
6 cups bread flour
2 tablespoon butter
Directions
Pour hot water into a electric mixing bowl and let it set for 5 minutes to warm the bowl.
Into the warmed mixing bowl pour the 2-1/2 cups warm water.
Stir in the sugar and sprinkle the yeast on top of the warm sugar water.
Let sit somewhere warm for 15 minutes until the yeast blooms.
Add the salt, rosemary, thyme, parsley and basil to the flour and mix well.
Add the oil to the yeast that has now bloomed.
Add 1/2 of the flour and herb mixture and mix well with the mixer using the dough hook.
Let the dough sit at this point for 10 minutes.
At the end of that rest period, add the remainder of the flour and herbs, mix well until the dough will no longer mix with the hook.
Turn the dough out on a floured surface and kneed for 3 minutes, then let the dough rest for 10 more minutes.
At the end of that rest period, then kneed for the last time and form a dough ball.
Divide the dough into 4 equal parts and place in a buttered 12 X 14 Iron Skillet.
Cover the dough with a clean cloth and let set in a warm place for 1-1/2 hours until doubled in size.
Very carefully slash the tops of the individual loaves.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove the bread from the oven and brush with the remainder of the butter.
Enjoy!
