Garlic bread from scratch without any fancy ingredient or procedure. Anyone can do it, if you follow the recipe, you get it done!
I always wanted to bake garlic bread at home just like we get in Pizza hut. Love only that we get there, than any other versions. So today I tried it.
It's great snack for kids. Aj likes this as well. You can also make a simpler version of this by spreading a store bought garlic cheese spread over baguette slices or even with our white bread slices.
Great finger food for the evenings and play times. This recipe is adapted from Suhaina’s blog.
Now after 2-3 weeks, Aj will get holidays and he will be at home for a month. All moms out there will know how it would be when the kids are at home.
|Bread flour||1 & ½ cup|
|Instant yeast||¾ tblsp|
|Olive oil/ melted butter||3 tblsp|
|Sesame seeds||2 tsp|
|Sugar||1 & ½ tblsp|
|Parmesan cheese, grated||2 tblsp|
|Garlic, grated or chopped||1 tsp|
|chopped fresh cilantro||1-2 tblsp|
1. Mix flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a big mixing bowl. Mix water and milk and heat it to lukewarm. Add it to the flour along with oil/butter and mix well. Knead the dough well for at least 10 minutes until it is elastic and smooth.
2. Keep aside covered with a cling wrap for an hour or until it rises double the size.
3. Punch down and again knead for 2 minutes and flatten it to fit it to a 8.5 inch loaf pan. Let it rise for 10 minutes or until you preheat the oven. Preheat the oven to 180 deg.
4. Once the dough is risen, brush it with milk and sprinkle sesame seeds(white) over the top. Bake the bread for 20 minutes. Or until the base of the bread when tapped is crisp.
5. Meanwhile prepare the garlic,butter,parmesan spread by mixing everything under ‘For spread’, with a fork.
6. Cool down the bread for minimum 30 minutes covered in a clean kitchen towel and using a knife, slice halfway through the bread. Before the time of serving, preheat the oven to 200 deg.
Apply the butter generously in between the sliced bread.Bake for 5-8 minutes. Take care not to let the bread get burnt at the top.
Enjoy it while it is warm, as a tea time snack!
This gives a medium sized bread loaf. You can bake the bread in advance. Do not use garlic more as it will give strong garlic smell. Also do not skip the herb. Use butter, cheese as mentioned. You can use garlic powder available in stores. If you want spiciness, use red chilli flakes in the spread. I used dried herbs, so used less. Use sharp knife for cutting the bread. Also make sure to cool down completely before cutting. You can also slice out separately and grill for 5-8 minutes to get a crispy garlic toast.

I want to try in microwave shud I make any changes in the recipe?
If you have convection mode in ur oven, then u can try this recipe, if not, cannot be done in microwave mode.
Hi, All recipes given in your blog is very good. We tried many cake recipes exactly as per your measurements, results were really perfect and amazing. Only problem we found in cake was on the top of the cake, we found cracks. Other wise, taste, softness etc were too good.
We could not find ice cream receipes.Do you have the same?
Also please clarify whether can we use dry yeast in place of instant yeast while making bread as per above recipe.
Al d recpies in ur blog r fablous n fantastic.
Garlic bread luks gr8 n temting too.
I m new to baking. Can you share few tips of baking.
Need d recepie 4 baked samosa also.
Hi, What is bread flour? n where do u get it in India?
Its similar to maida / all purpose flour , but more refined and bleached. You can replace with maida also.
Can we substitute instant yeast with Active dry yeast? What is the difference..
For active dry yeast, use 1 tblsp, dissolve it in lukewarm milk with sugar and keep aside for 5 mins. It will froth and come up. So proceed with it to knead dough. Hope its clear
Thank you so much, will try it.
Superb...in which rack it should be baked
In my oven no rack so I placed it as usual down.
Which oven u r using?

Hi What is Bread Flour. Can I used self raising flour instead of Bread Flou
Hi Raji..My Garlic bread did not turn brown at all. Its all nice and fluffy but white in color which was a little awkward to eat:) but tasted good..how to make it brown?
Just use plain flour (all purpose flour/maida). Bread flour is more refined to give soft results. Self raising flour has some rising agents which we don't need for bread.
May be increase your baking temperature. Milk wash gives good browned top too.
