The recipe for herb bread makes a 2 pound loaf, perfect for going along with dinner, or for sandwich bread. We use a Zojirushi Bread Machine, that has a 2 pound capacity, but this recipe will work as long as your machine can handle up to 2 pounds. I like my Zoji as it produces a normal looking loaf of bread (instead of a high loaf). This loaf came out a little sunken on top, but was none the less delicious. Ugly, but tasty works for me.

Add the ingredients in order listed. Set machine for a basic loaf.
Remove once baked promptly, and cool on a wire rack. Store cooled bread in a plastic bread bag.
