Blitz Bread | www.tasteandtellblog.com

Last week I mentioned that if I could only eat one food, it would be cheese. Well, my second choice would be bread – and really, if I could just eat cheese and bread, then I’d be a very happy girl!! The biggest problem with being a bread lover – besides the fact that I’d be very overweight if I ate as much of it as I’d like to – is that it usually takes a lot of time to make. Now that I’m a stay at home mom, I thought I’d have all the time in the world to bake and make bread, but most days, that is simply not the case.

Now, this bread isn’t a “quick” bread, but it takes very little hands on time and is a cinch to make. And I love that it is very versatile – you can change up the herb mix to whatever you are feeling that day. In my bread, I used some herbs de provence and sprinkled the top with coarse sea salt and it was a lovely combination. This one will be a regular in our house!

Blitz Bread
Prep time
Cook time
An easy yeast bread that can be made in under 2 hours.
Serves: 12 servings
  • 1½ cups (12 ounces) warm water
  • 3 tablespoons (1¼ ounces) olive oil (plus additional for drizzling)
  • 1¼ teaspoons salt
  • 3½ cups (14 ¾ ounces) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon instant yeast
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt
  • 3 teaspoons dried herbs
  • dried herbs for sprinkling
  1. Lightly grease a 9? x 13? pan, and drizzle 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil in the bottom.
  2. Combine all of the ingredients, except the dried herbs for sprinkling, and beat with an electric mixer for 60 seconds.
  3. Scoop the sticky batter into the prepared pan, cover the pan, and let it rise at room temperature for 60 minutes, till it is puffy.
  4. While the dough is rising, preheat the oven to 375°F.
  5. Gently poke the dough all over with your index finger.
  6. Drizzle it lightly with olive oil, and sprinkle with the dried herbs of your choice, if desired.
  7. Bake the bread till it’s golden brown, 35 to 40 minutes.
  8. Remove it from the oven, wait 5 minutes, then turn it out of the pan onto a rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.

    Cheese and bread, now that’s an idea. I think I’d have to add pasta as well though.

  10. Sophie says:

    I adore bread too; bread AND cheese, even better. Making bread is time consuming, but I always tell myself it’s worth it. I bet this smelled heavenly while it baked, with those yummy spices especially!
