This is not your run-of-the-mill garlic bread but rather the most fragrant version that's garlicky inside and out. First, a mixture of garlic and butter is spread over the dough before it's rolled into a log; then, after the loaves are baked, they're cut into slices, spread with more garlic butter, and broiled until melted and delicious. Pile the slices in a bread basket and serve as a before-meal treat, or alongside your favorite Italian-style main courses.

Ingredients

  • 170 milliliters warm water
  • 15 grams yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 100 grams wheat flour
  • 200 grams flour
  • salt
  • 150 grams butter (melted)
  • 2 garlic cloves (peeled and minced)
  • dill

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius.
  2. Add the water, yeast, and sugar to a large bowl and mix well. Wait until the yeast has dissolved.
  3. Add the flours and 2 tablespoons of salt and mix again.
  4. Place the bowl in a warm spot and cover with a moist towel. Allow to rise for 1 1/2 hours.
  5. In another bowl, blend the butter, garlic, and a pinch of salt into a puree
  6. Turn out the dough on to a floured surface and knead by hand. Divide the dough into 2 portions.
  7. Roll out each one, using a rolling pin, to form rectangles.
  8. Spread with 3/4 of the garlic butter, saving a little aside for later.
  9. Roll up from the long edge of the rectangle, taking care to seal the edges to prevent the melted butter escaping.
  10. Place in a baguette pan and leave to rest for 1 hour covered with a moist towel at room temperature.
  11. Uncover the baguette; with a sharp knife make horizontal slits along the top of the dough and then sprinkle with flour.
  12. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
  13. Remove immediately from the pan and leave to cool on a cooling rack.
  14. Set the oven's broiler on high.
  15. Cut the bread in slices, spread with the remaining garlic butter and sprinkle with dill.
  16. Broil for a minute or 2 and serve warm.

This delicious garlic bread is super easy to make, and it can be served with any great pasta dish. I decreased the garlic just a little though, because I didn't want an overpowering flavor. If you like the strong garlic flavor, then follow the recipe as it is.
