Pesto bread

This is adapted from the toastmaster breadmaker use and care guide. The recipe is intended for the "fast bake" program on your breadmaker.

Pesto Bread

Makes a 1.5 lb loaf
1 cup + 2 tbsp milk (110–115 degrees)
3 tbsp prepared pesto (room temperature)
4 tsp sugar
3/4 tsp salt
3 cloves thinly sliced garlic
3 cups bread flour
1 tbsp dried basil
1 tbsp quick rise or bread machine yeast

Add ingredients to breadmaker from top to bottom on the list (starting with wet ingredients). Select the fast bake program and hit start. Hot bread to your table in an hour! I suggest cooling at least 20 minutes before slicing. This bread made a great companion to my homemade minestrone (recipe to follow).
