Roasted Garlic & Herb Bread

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/garlic_herb_bread.html

From EatingWell:  September/October 2011

This savory quick bread is loaded with roasted garlic—two heads of it!—plus chopped fresh herbs of your choice, so it has a big nutty, toasty, herbal flavor that’s ideal with a hot bowl of soup. If you’re intimidated about baking bread, a quick bread, which is made with baking powder and baking soda instead of yeast, is the perfect place to start.

1 loaf, 12 slices | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 2 1/4 hours

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Position rack in middle of oven; preheat to 375°F. Line a 9-by-5-inch (or similar-size) loaf pan with parchment paper; generously coat the paper and sides of the pan with cooking spray.
  2. Peel roasted garlic cloves, keeping them whole.
  3. Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, 2 tablespoons fresh herbs (or 2 teaspoons dried), baking powder, baking soda, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Whisk eggs, milk and oil in a medium bowl. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and gently stir together until almost combined. Add the garlic cloves and gently fold into the batter until evenly combined; do not overmix. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top; sprinkle with the remaining 1 teaspoon fresh herbs (or 1/2 teaspoon dried).
  4. Bake the bread until lightly browned on top and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes. Let cool in the pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Run a knife around and under the loaf to loosen it and turn out onto the rack. Let cool at least 30 minutes before slicing. Serve warm or at room temperature.
