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.

Oh my. This was so easy and really, really delicious. I made it with a slow prove in the fridge for a couple of hours and then in the kitchen for about half an hour. It rose beautifully. I only needed to use 4 pieces so divided up the remaining bread and froze in individual portions. Defrosted and reheated with no problem. Definitely a 5 star recipe.

Made this today and it was lovely, it was my first time making bread but I found the recipe really easy to follow and the garlic bread was delicious. Like others I added extra garlic and i think when I make this again I will perhaps not add the cheese as I think I would of preferred it with out.

This is the easiest and best bread recipe! I added granulated garlic and thyme into the dough and then cheese and spring onion to the top. So soft and delicious. And everyone was very impressed, needless to say it's all gone!

Made last week to go with spag bol, used a lot more garlic and the bread turned out really nice. Made it again the other night to go with a chilli, without the cheese and the hubby isn't a fan, and again was really nice. Definitely making again!

Made the dough and proved in fridge overnight-rolls out very well when cold. Freezes particularly well when cooked too!

I absolutely loved this! Such an easy recipe that produced very well risen, and lovely soft bread! The only thing I did slightly differently was I didn't crush the garlic (hate cleaning garlic crushers!) and used three cloves and not two. I also used some rock salt, and a touch of chilli powder, in with the garlic butter. Very happy with this - my kids loved in, and they don't even like cheese!

Excellent recipe. I read comments about the garlic not being enough so I used six cloves which made it quite strong but we love garlic! Next time I would consider adding some mixed herbs too. Looking forward to making it again.
