I did decrease the salt by using 2 teaspoons, but still is too salty for us. I also added rosemary to the olive oil. Thanks Charmie777 for sharing. Made for ZWT4 for the Eastern Europe bread challenge.
A wonderfully flavorful foccacia like bread with plenty of old fashioned flavor. Just like the bread rounds in the speciality shops - only fresh from the oven.The aroma alone worth a five! Thank you Charmie - this one goes straight to my Bread collection.
This is a good bread and it is pretty easy and quick as yeast breads go. We don't have a bread machine, so DH kneaded it by hand. Stiff dough and uniform but limited rising resulted from minimal liquid and heavy salt, both of which slow the yeast. We might be tempted to change both, but suspect that the dense, soft bread that results is the desired ethnic character of the recipe. We served wedges with shrimp scampi, then made a hearty sandwich by slicing half the remaining loaf flatwise and stuffing it with meat, cheese, and mayo. The garlic topping spread its fragrance throughout the house when baking. Made for ZWT4.
Great bread recipe. Great garlic flavour, and an easy to follow recipe. Made and reviewed for ZWT 4.
Another keeper! This made a beautiful dough which rose like winner! I cut back the salt, a little and next time I wll add some rosemary. Thanks for the recipe!
