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.

Really tasty bread & my 4yr old loved kneading the dough, dotting the butter and sprinkling the cheese. Will make this a lot.

An excellent recipe. Normally my attempt at making any kind of bread flops big time but this didn't! We all loved it so much. It was nice and light and it rose really well. Just one little thing though, I would have preferred a bit more salt in the mixture next time....fabby!

My first time making bread and it turned out really yummy. I used 4 cloves of garlic and kneaded for 10mins. The smell is amazing!

I've made this a few times now and the family love it and now keep asking me to make it again. Quick and easy recipe with great results. I have also been using basil leaves just pushed into the top of the dough before rising and it's equally delicious.

In the oven now I only put cheese on half because my brother doesn't like it I also had no thyme so put rosemary on top instead the family are having it with ribs tonight I'll let you know the verdict :)
