Bread for Crostini Pinterest Large

This recipe for herbs of Provence bread for crostini is the best bread for bruschetta or crostini! It's a flavorful salty baguette that will complement your crostini, bruschette and toasts whichever toppings you are using.

This bread is a white bread with a firm crust and dense crumb flavored with herbs of Provence, or herbs de Provence, and topped with sea salt.

Herbs of Provence consist in a mix of equal parts of savory, oregano, rosemary and thyme, very fragrant. I only use a tbsp. of Herbs of Provence for this quantity of dough as it is quickly overpowering. I like to add 1/2 a tsp in my savory pastry doughs for quiches.

This recipe makes for 3 small loaves or 2 larger. This bread freezes well, I like to slice it before freezing, then I store it in my freezer into a Ziploc bag, this way we can help ourselves with a slice whenever we want and just pop it in our toaster.

  • Abt 36 crostini
  • Easy
  • 2 h 30

Recipe :

Ingredients:

1 3/4 cups (400 g.) all-purpose flour

1 tsp (7 g.) dry yeast

1 tsp salt

1 tbsp. honey

1 cup lukewarm water

1 tbsp. Herbs de Provence

1 tsp olive oil

Sea salt flakes for the topping

Instructions:

Add the dry yeast, lukewarm water and honey into the bowl of your stand mixer, stir and let stand for about 10-15 minutes

Once the yeast is foamy, add the flour, salt, herbs de Provence and olive oil, knead with the dough hook for about 3 to 5 minutes or until the sides of the bowl are clean and the dough is no longer sticky to the touch, as always if your dough is too dry add more water teaspoon by teaspoon, conversely if it is too wet add more flour teaspoon by teaspoon

Sprinkle some flour on your work surface and knead the dough until it is soft, form a ball and add it into a large bowl lightly coated with oil, cover with a towel and store in a warm place in your kitchen, for instance into your oven with the lights turned on, let rise until doubled or for one hour

After one hour, sprinkle some flour onto your work surface, gently deflate the dough with your hands and cut into 3 pieces

Flatten each ball of dough into a rectangle and roll it out firmly to form a baguette, arrange the baguettes onto a large baking tray, cover the tray and let double in size once again about 30 minutes

Pre-heat your oven at 400°F (200°C), brush the baguettes with water and sprinkle with sea salt, bake for 18-20 minutes

Enjoy!

Thanks so much Lainey, normally I use to freeze my leftover bread but there's no way with that one, it's all eaten in a jiffy!
