3 Handmade garlic bread

Now that we’ve gotten a couple of appetisers out of the way, and handed everyone their favourite Strawberry Milkshake, it is time to enjoy some slice-of-life moments by looking at revisiting our adventures from the year, all while enjoying a Handmade garlic bread that your guests can’t get enough of.

To show off your cooking skills with bread made by hand, from scratch and a garlic butter accompaniment that can go with it, here’s a recipe for Elegant Garlic Bread for Parties.

Ingredients for Bread Dough:

- 4 cups all-purpose flour

- 1 tablespoon sugar

- 1 tablespoon active dry yeast

- 1 1/2 cups warm water

- 2 tablespoons olive oil

- 1 teaspoon salt

Ingredients for Garlic Butter Spread:

- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened

- 4 cloves garlic, minced

- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped

- Salt to taste


1- We'll start off with the dough.  In a bowl, combine warm water and sugar. Stir until sugar dissolves. Sprinkle the yeast over the water and let it sit for about 5 minutes until it becomes frothy.

2 - In the bowl of your Hafele Klara Highline Kitchen Machine, combine the flour, activated yeast mixture, olive oil, and salt. Using the dough hook attachment, knead the dough on low to medium speed for about 8-10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.

3 - Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a kitchen towel, and let it rise in a warm place for 1-1.5 hours or until it doubles in size.

4 - Punch down the risen dough and turn it onto a floured surface. Shape the dough into a loaf and place it on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

5 - Cover the shaped dough with a kitchen towel and let it rise for another 30-45 minutes.

6 - Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and bake the bread for about 25-30 minutes
7- Now moving on to the garlic butter, while the bread bakes. In a bowl, mix together softened butter, minced garlic, chopped parsley, and salt.

8 - Once the bread is baked and cooled slightly, slice it horizontally and spread the garlic butter mixture evenly over the bread. Serve warm and indulge!

A party staple that’s loved by all, now created with your special touch is sure to be a hit with all your friends and relatives!
