Cheddar Basil Batter Bread

The herb flavor in cheddar basil batter bread is fantastic. This easy yeast, no-knead bread is a great addition to chicken and pasta dinners. The bread dough is a wet dough that is mixed, allowed to rise, mixed down, and scraped into a loaf pan. Recipe for this batter bread makes one loaf.

  • 1 tsp basil

  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2-2/3 cups all-purpose flour


  1. In medium bowl, add yeast and water. Stir until yeast is dissolved.

AMAZING Bread!!!, Member xana43

I'm, admittedly, weird. Well after seeing a Panera commercial, I though of making some of my own bread. Well, I needed to find a recipe with all-purpose flour and didn't use a bread machine (because it's still packed away from the move). I found this recipe and, at first glance, thought it was a bit odd. But after I made it, I will make this bread ALL THE TIME NOW!!!! It is some of the best bread I have ever had!
