Why not try?

If you've never tried making your own bread then a monkey bread, or a tear and share bread, is a good place to start. It's also something that can be made easily with children as there are no special skills needed, and all children like rolling dough, don't they?

Monkey bread is traditionally a sweet sticky cinnamon flavoured bread, but here I've made it with garlic and herbs. I recently visited a garlic farm and picked up a grappe (bunch) of garlic and decided to roast some of the bulbs to use in this recipe.

Roasting the garlic takes the bitterness off it and you're left with a garlic purée which is delicious spread on bread or crackers.

Ingredients

Metric

Imperial

1
Add the flour, salt, sugar, yeast, olive oil and 225ml of milk to a large mixing bowl
2
Mix all the ingredients together until they start to come together, adding more milk as required
3
Knead on a floured surface for around 10 minutes, until soft and stretchy (or approximately 5 minutes in a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook)
4
Add to an oiled bowl covered with oiled cling film for around 2 hours, until doubled in size. Meanwhile roast the garlic bulbs
5
Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4
6
Cut the tops off the bulbs and place on a baking sheet covered with foil. Drizzle with a little olive oil and cover tightly with foil
7
Roast in the oven for around 1 hour (depending on the size of the garlic) until soft. Allow to cool before mixing with the chopped herbs and olive oil, set aside
8
Once the dough has proved knock it back on a floured surface and divide into 24 equal pieces
9
Grease a large loaf pan or baking tin. Form each piece of dough into a ball and roll in the garlic and herb mix and then into the baking tin/loaf pan
10
Cover again with cling film and leave to prove for 1 hour
