Tomato Basil Bread



This Tomato Basil Bread is a simple batter bread that when finished will taste anything but simple.

You're gonna wanna cut this bread the minute it comes out of the oven but you really need to let it cool first. It shouldn't take but maybe 30 minutes to cool.






Here's what you are going to need:


For the bread:
2 1/2 cups of All-purpose flour
1/3 cup of grated Parmesan Cheese
1 tablespoon of sugar
3 teaspoons of finely diced spring onions
1 teaspoon of baking soda
2 tablespoons of fresh chopped basil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup of sour cream
1/3 cup of milk
1/3 cup of sun-dried tomatoes in oil, chopped
1/4 cup melted butter


For the Topping:
1 egg white
2 tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese


For the Spread:
1/2 cup of butter, softened
2 tablespoons of Parmesan Cheese
1 teaspoon of Italian Seasoning


Here's what you need to do:

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.



In a medium bowl, combine the flour, 1/3 cup of Parmesan cheese, sugar, onions, baking soda, basil and salt. Mix well.



Add the sour cream, milk, tomatoes and melted butter.



Stir just until moistened.



Turn out onto a fairly heavily floured surface and knead about 10 times. Divide dough in half.



Form each half into a 4 1/2 inch round loaf. Grease a baking sheet and place the loaves on the baking sheet about 3 inches apart.



Brush the top of each loaf with the egg white.



Sprinkle with the Parmesan Cheese. Cut an X into each loaf about 1/2 inch deep.



Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until lightly browned. Remove from baking sheet and cool completely before cutting.



While the bread is baking, combine the spread ingredients. Enjoy!
