King Arthur Flour Project: French Herb Bread

French Herb Bread

For the next installment of the King Arthur Flour project, I chose this recipe for French Herb Bread. The herb in this recipe is herbs de Provence. And, I just happened to have a jar of the herbs sitting in my cabinet waiting to be used. 

I found this recipe on the King Arthur Flour site. Click here to see the recipe for French Herb Bread. This was a simple bread to throw together. I loved the fragrance of the herbs. And, even though two tablespoons may seem like a lot, it wasn't. It added just the right amount of flavor.

The bread had a wonderful flavor and reminded me of the herbed bread served at Italian restaurants. Normally, I serve my bread with some olive oil and a sprinkling of my bread seasoning. But, because the herbs were baked into the bread, I served it with olive oil sprinkled with sea salt and black pepper. The combination of flavors really worked well together. 

For those of you who want to take the baking journey with me, there is help for us all. King Arthur Flour has a Baking Hotline with wonderful experts who can help us if we have recipe questions or get stuck with something. Call (800.827.6836), email ( or even chat live online (! Let's take the bread journey together!

Disclaimer: King Arthur Flour provided me with a copy of the cookbook and the flour, but the opinion expressed here is my own.


  1. I love your encouragement to bake bread. I've been telling friends for years how easy it is and not to be afraid of failing. You're an inspiration. XOXO

  2. I really enjoy baking our own bread but I'm never as adventurous as you are. We tend to find one we really like and that's as far as it goes. I'd love to make this one.
