The Call Of The Garlic Bread !

No sooner had I taken this beauty out of the oven that the little grabby hands of my kids and husband appeared out of nowhere.

One minute I was in the kitchen alone, the next, i’m surrounded! As if by magic my little minions had abandoned their playstations, friends and phones and arrived almost instantly at my side, hovering like hungry vultures as I cut into it!

I even had to bat their hands away in order to take the pictures!…Put it this way, there was no time for any picture styling. By the time I got my camera ready, 3 pieces were missing!

Mama did Good!

Suffice to say it was a Hit! I served it alongside my Spaghetti and Meatballs, which was also demolised in record time!

Cheesy Garlic Bread

Instructions

1. The first step is to bloom the yeast- Combine the warm water and sugar in a small bowl and stir. Sprinkle the Yeast on top, cover with clingfilm and set aside for 15 minutes (**the water must be warm not hot, hot water will kill the yeast) By the end of the 15 minutes your yeast will look foamy…if it doesn’t, the yeast is dead and you’ll have to start over.

2. In a large mixing bowl combine flour, olive oil, Sugar and salt and mix well with your rubber spatula

3. Slowly Pour in the yeast mixture and combine well until a dough begins to form

4. Turn out the dough onto a floured surface and knead for around 5 minutes until smooth and stretchy. * If it feels too wet, sprinkle some flour on the dough until more workable

5. Shape into a ball and place in a lined or oiled bowl or proving bowl and allow to rise for 90 minutes, until doubled in size

6. Line a baking tray with baking paper and dump the dough on top. With your hands gently stretch out the dough into a rectangle or oval shape (**dont stretch it out too much, we want a nice chunky bake) cover loosely with cling wrap and allow to Puff up for 20 minutes.

7. Place the softened butter, Basil and grated garlic in a bowl and mash together with the back of a fork

8. Pre-heat The Oven to 200 c

9. After 20 minutes, use your Fingers to prod dimples into the surface of the dough.

10. Dot small lumps of the garlic butter randomly on the dough

11. Sprinkle generously with Mozzarella Cheese and season with salt and pepper

12. Pop in the middle of the oven for 18-25 minutes

13. Serve while hot

This Garlic Bread dough can be done by hand or with the use of a stand mixer. For the longest time I made all my bread doughs by hand. But I can’t deny the efficiency and practicality of a stand mixer! If you are thinking about investing in A Stand Mixer I recommend the one I Use…The Rose Gold and Black Salter EK4245RG Stand Mixer.
