Picture of What You Need

Here is what you need:

- 4 cups of flour

Picture of Dough

To make the dough mix 1 1/2 cups of lukewarm water with one package of dry yeast.

Put 4 cups of flour and a pinch of salt into a mixing bowl. Add the yeast and water and mix it.

When the mixture looks like on the second picture you need to knead it a bit more until it is one big dough. You might need to add some water or flour to achive that.

Cover the dough and let it rise.

In the meantime you can prepare the garlic butter mimxture.

Step 3: Garlic

Preheat the oven to 160°C / 320°F.

Take about 5 cloves of garlic and chop them.

Melt the butter in a pan and add the garlic, a pinch of salt and pepper, 1/2 a teaspoon of sugar and a drizzle of olive oil.

Let it simmer at low temperature for about five minutes.

Step 4: Baking

Take your dough and separate it into two pieces. Take these pieces and separate them again and so on, until you have 1 inch big scoops. Place them on a bakingsheet or casserol.

Put it in the oven for about 10 to 12 minutes. Or until they start to get golden.

When that happens take your garlic mixture and pour it over the breadrolls.The leftover garlic butter mixture can be used as a dip.

Put the breadrolls back into the oven and heat the oven to 220°C / 420°F. Now you have to watch them carefully. Make sure they don´t burn. All you want is a golden crust.

Looks great! how much is a package of yeast?

He Se (author)DiabolicSun2016-07-02

I used dried yeast, it´s about 7g. When you use fresh yeast it´s about 42g.

DiabolicSun made it! (author)He Se 2016-07-04

The only dry yeast I could find here is 125g packets. People usually use fresh yeast, they're sold in small 50g packages... None of it makes sense here. :)

Thank you very much!
By the way, I already made it, and it turned out great for the first bread I've ever made. (Although I struggled quite a bit with the stickiness of the dough, thus the bread was bigger)

Wow it looks great! I´m glad you liked it and it worked out :)

Fresh yeast works better, but I only had dry yeast.

When the dough is to sticky add a bit flour and mix it until the dough has the right concistency.
