    Glad to see i wasn't the only that read "put all ingredients in" so I left the herb butter in 😫 fingers crossed it works to some degree!

    Easy to make and delicious bread. I did halve the ingredients because there is just the two of us. It worked out fine and there is enough bread (for us) for 2-3 nights. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    Turned out really well! Just a question in the recipe you preheat the oven before you even start making the dough which then has to rest at least 30 min, is that really necessary?

    Oops' as it said put all ingredients in bowl and mix - I added the herb butter to flour. Also would be easier to use butter than making own.
