Boredom bread making

I surveyed my family to see what kind of bread I should make, and they all requested rosemary bread. I decided to use the recipe from the website Cooking Carnival. This recipe caught my eye not only because it’s a no-knead bread, but I could also use an Instant Pot to speed up the proofing process which activates the yeast in the dough. 

This bread recipe called for olive oil, granulated sugar, instant yeast, fresh rosemary, bread flour and salt. I wanted to see if there really was a difference between making the bread with all-purpose flour and bread flour, so I made two batches with all-purpose flour and two with bread flour. They ended up being the same, so if you don’t have bread flour, all-purpose works just fine. The recipe also calls for fresh rosemary, but the only thing I had was dried rosemary. Even though I used dried rosemary, the bread came out with good flavor.
