Tomato Pesto Swirl Bread

I know this is a sad excuse for a picture, but let that show you how quickly this bread was devoured.
I was enjoying the last slice when I realized I had yet to take a single picture of the fabulous bread. 
Just be aware it's pretty likely some oil from the pesto will leak out of the bread while it's baking.

This is from Alli-n-son, which has so many fabulous dessert recipes and has a really cute design. Check it out!

  • Bread
  • 1-1/4 cups warm water
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3-1/2 cups bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dry yeast
  • Pesto Swirl
  • 1/4 cup sun dried tomato pesto (your favorite basil pesto blended with sun dried tomatoes)
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  1. Place the bread ingredients into your bread machine in the order your bread machine requires. Select the dough cycle.
  2. Once the cycle has completed turn the dough out onto a piece of parchment paper and roll into an 8" x 12" rectangle. Spread pesto over the dough, leaving 1/4" on all sides. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  3. Starting at the short side roll the dough. Seal the seam and ends. Place the dough seam-side down on the parchment paper.
  4. Let rise for 30-45 minutes or until doubled in size. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  5. While the bread rises, preheat the oven and a baking stone to 425 degrees.
  6. When the bread has doubled in size slide the parchment paper and bread onto the hot baking stone. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from baking stone and cool on a wire rack.
  7. Slice when completely cooled.
