Method

  1. Measure the flour, yeast and salt into a large bowl. Mix 300ml hand-hot water with the oil and honey in a jug, then pour into the dry mix, stirring all the time to make a soft dough.
  2. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, then knead for 5 mins until the dough no longer feels sticky, sprinkling with a little more flour as you need it. Now stretch it to fit the Swiss roll tin.
  3. Mix the garlic with the butter, then dot over the dough. Sprinkle over the cheese and snip over the thyme. Cover the bread with lightly oiled cling film, then leave in a warm place to rise for 40 mins.
  4. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Remove the cling film, then bake the bread for 30 mins until golden and risen. Leave to cool for 10 mins, then cut into 12 pieces and serve.

I have made this recipe more than once now,in fact it is a family favourite especially with the kids.The first time i tried it exactly like the recipe and the second time i made it with tomatoe sauce and different toppings like a pizza.The pastry comes really soft and delicious.I like to do it almost every BBQ as a starter.If you're going to try it make sure to double the recipe as it disappears very fast!

Have now made this twice - once with Aubergine bake and once for a barbeque - both times very successful - loved it! So quick and easy - will not be buying shop bought stuff anymore

Great! I made it into a pizza assuggested - with some tomatoes, tuna and grated cheddar on the top. It was quite high though, so next time I'll use half for pizza and half for small garlic bread.
