Spicy Pepper Bread

This is from one of my mom’s recipes, modified for use with the new Bread Bot. I did up a batch of it last night using the alternate “Pull-Apart” directions at the bottom. It produces a nice light loaf of bread with a spicy kick that creeps up on you.


  • 1 1/3 cups water
  • 2 tbsp margarine
  • 2 tbsp dry milk
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 teasp salt
  • 1/2 tbsp cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 teasp crushed red pepper
  • 3 cups unsifted flour
  • 1/2 pkg dry yeast

Add ingredients to mixer bowl in order listed. For the yeast, create a depression in the pile of flour and make sure the yeast doesn’t fall into the water. Bake on machine’s basic setting.

To bake as pull-apart bread, you will need a conventional oven and the following additional ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp margarine
  • 2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese

Use bread machine to make dough, using above recipe. Remove before final rising phase and place on lightly floured surface. Cover and allow to rise for about 15 min.

Melt 2 tbsp margarine in a small pan. Roll out dough into a rectangle. Brush half of oleo over surface.

Cut dough into 4 equal strips and stack. Cut crosswise into 4 equal stacks. Turn on end and arrange in a greased 9 x 5 x 3 pan.

Cover loaf and let rise in warm place until doubled in bulk (about 30-45 min).

Sprinkle tops with parmesan cheese and bake at 350° for 30 min.
