Parmesan Peppercorn Bread Recipe

I just typed this recipe out.....(I am a very slow typist)  and thought I would share  this yummy recipe here also.

I have a Kitchen Aide and let it do the kneading for me. :-) Told you I was lazy!

Parmesan Peppercorn Bread

1 cup warm  water
1 pkg quick rise yeast
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
4 Tbsp Olive Oil
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
fresh ground pepper as much as you would like
3 cups unbleached flour

Mix water and yeast together to dissolve, add 1 cup flour, oil, salt and sugar....mix well.
Slowly add the rest of the flour making sure not to let the dough get too thick. It should take in all the flour but still feel soft. Add in the parmesan cheese. Knead for about 10 minutes.
Leave in your bowl, oiling the top with olive oil so it doesn't dry out. Cover with a dish towel and place in the oven with the oven light on. Let rise for about an hour or until double.
Grease a large bread pan and put the punched down dough in it. Again oil the top and cover with a towel. Let rise in the oven again with the light on until double again about an hour.
Preheat oven 375 degrees and bake the bread for about 40 minutes. Let cool a little and then enjoy!

Take care,
