1-Hour Tomato Basil Bread

Hot, homemade tomato basil bread that won’t take all day to make.
From start to finish, this recipe takes just one hour!
1-Hour Tomato Basil Bread
1 1/2 cups milk
5-6 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons active dry yeast
1 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes, canned or fresh (with juice)
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil (1 tablespoon dry)
5-6 cups flour
2 teaspoons garlic salt,
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Butter for brushing tops

Recipe makes 2 loaves (8 1/2 x 4 1/2), or one large pan of rolls, or a combination 9×9 pan rolls for dinner now and loaf of bread for tomorrow. Spray pans with non-stick spray and set aside.

Microwave milk 1 minute on high; add sugar and stir; add yeast, stir and set 5-7 minutes while chopping tomatoes and basil. Add to the milk and yeast the tomatoes, basil, 4-cups flour, salt, baking powder, melted butter and lemon juice. Knead with dough hook on a stand mixer for 5-8 minutes, adding additional 1-2 cups flour as needed to make a soft dough and to prevent dough from sticking to sides of bowl. (To make by hand: stir part of the flour into other ingredients and beat; turn dough onto a floured surface and knead by hand about 10 minutes – adding additional flour as needed to make a ‘soft’ dough.) NOTE – one key point to this recipe is keeping the dough soft – just firm enough to handle if your hands are floured.

Keep hands floured, divide dough in half; shape into loaves or rolls and place in prepared pans. Set on counter 15-20 minutes while pre-heating oven.

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees; bake rolls approximately 20 minutes, bread 30-35 minutes. Brush the tops of warm baked bread with butter. Store leftovers in refrigerator, rewarm in microwave.

Notes:
The aroma of baking bread is comforting and the taste is delicious. But, when time is limited try this 1-hour no-rise yeast bread! Serve warm with seasoned herb butter – excellent with soups and stews and in grilled cheese sandwiches!
