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.
