Before returning to Athens, I wanted to make use of the fresh rosemary in the garden that grows in large bushes. I love the smell that rosemary produces while baking so I decided to make a rosemary bread.

Preparation time: 60 minutes

baking time: 40 minutes

easy recipe


  • 500 gram flour
  • 220 ml water
  • hand full of fresh rosemary
  • some olive oil
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch sugar
  • pack of yeast


Mix the flour with the yeast, salt and sugar. Add the water and work the mixture until the dough is smooth. This should take approx. 8 minutes. towards the end add a few spoons of olive oil. Make sure that you use lukewarm water.

Cover the dough and let it sit for 30 minutes. Then knead it once more, this time add the finely chopped rosemary. Let it sit again for 30 minutes.

Dust the loaf with some flour and place it on a baking tray. Put the tray into the preheated oven (220 degrees centigrade) and let it bake for 40 minutes.

Remove the loaf from the oven and let it sit to cool down.

  1. A fabulous way of flavoring bread! This loaf would go perfectly well with cheese…
