Packed with flavour from the sundried tomatoes. Serve as a starter with deli meats, olives and balsamic and olive oil to dip the bread in.


  1. Put the flour, salt, parmesan, sundried tomatoes and paste into a large bowl.

  2. Add the chopped herbs and easy bake yeast, then pour in the warm water.

  3. Mix together with your hands until the mixture combines to make a rough dough ball.

  4. Tip the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and stretch and knead the dough for 10 minutes until smooth and elastic.

  5. Shape into a 23cm (9inch) round. Put into a greased 23cm (9inch) round tin. Press lots of indentations into the top of the bread with your finger. Scatter over a few extra herbs, drizzle with some of the olive oil from the sundried tomatoes and sprinkle with coarse sea salt.

  6. Cover loosely with cling film. Leave in a warm place until doubled in size (this will take about 30-40 minutes.)

  7. Preheat the oven to 220°C (fan 200°C, gas mark 7). Remove cling film from bread and reduce the oven temperature to 200°C (fan 180°C, gas mark 6). Bake the bread for 35 minutes until golden.

    Not familiar with "sachet" of yeast. How much is that in tsps?
    A sachet of yeast is 7g, a tsp. is generally 5g.

    Loved it. Full of flavour. Added feta cheese as I didn't have parmesan. It was really delicious.

    I have made this bread twice now, both times without the parmesan, as my husband is allergic to cheese, and I have to say, it's lovely. All family members have really enjoyed it too

    I just love this bread, have made 3 of this recipe. Have also made sun dried toms & mixed herbs missing out the Parmesan so added extra herbs, another one with onion & mixed herbs, it’s lovely too.
    This is so easy to make and once sliced it freezes well. I even toast it with phili cheese for lunch snack. Delicious every time.

    Making this again 200g of strong plain 225 g of plain flour makes it just a bit lighter. Added green and black olives and 'painted' the loaf before with sea salt and olive oil from tomatoes.

    Great bread, I was briefly elevated to royalty in the eyes of my children. That lasted about as long as the entire loaf, 15 mins 😂

    Just made this and it’s fabulous
    I did not have strong flour so used plain flour came out brilliantly

    I have made this in the past as the rolls and it is very tasty and great with salads instead of potato's soft and delicious
