Can I use whole wheat flour instead of white flour to make rosemary gruyere bread?

Yes, but whole wheat flour yields a denser loaf, so you may prefer using 3⁄4 of the amount of white flour in the rosemary gruyere bread recipe. You will find the best amount that works perfectly by experience.

Here is a delicious rosemary gruyere bread that tastes herbal, cheesy, and savory. Fresh or dried rosemary leaves are one of the most favorite herbs of Mediterranean cuisine. It is used in many cooked foods, especially in meat dishes, and gives a mustard-like taste. You can also make rosemary tea with it.

Gruyere cheese, on the other hand, is a very popular swiss cheese with a sweet but slightly salty taste. It is commonly used in bakery goods because its taste is distinctive but not so heavy.

Rosemary gruyere bread combines these two tastes perfectly. Traditionally, rosemary gruyere bread dough is made the night before, left at room temperature overnight, then shaped and kept 2 more hours at room temperature for a second rise, and baked in a Dutch oven. However, with this recipe, your bread maker will take care of all these steps and offer you perfectly cooked, delicious bread in the morning.

Now go down to the recipe below and make rosemary gruyere bread for your loved ones today!
