Before I made this, I read the reviews and saw that some people used the bread machine for the dough cycle and then pulled it out and formed it into a longer loaf. This appealed to me, but I should have let it stay in the machine. The second rising caused it to not only expand upwards, but out. When it cooked I had flatter, wider loaves than I wanted. The flavor was decent on this, but I would like to try it with fresh garlic as some suggested. Maybe I'll add some oregano and basil, too.
I made this in my machine and had to leave before seeing how it looked when it was mixed. It turned out to need a little more water, maybe start with an additional 1/8 cup. Even though it baked up lumpy, the flavor is still great. I'll make it again!
YUM!! DH and I really enjoyed this bread. I used real milk in place of the dry and added minced garlic in place of the garlic powder, added alittle Italian seasoning too. I used the dough cycle and let rise 30 minutes to a hour. Baked at 350' for 20 minutes. Its a keeper! We loved the flavor :) Thanks for sharing the recipe!!
Nice bread. Next time I'm increasing the garlic!
This bread was really good. I followed the directions exactly with no changes. The texture was perfect. I LOVE garlic, but I'm not too fond of garlic powder. Next time I might sub fresh garlic for the garlic powder. Thanks NovaLee for a great recipe!
I had to add about 1 1/8 cu. water rather 1 cu. listed in recipe, but with that ended up with a nice garlic bread--kind of like a French bread but with a delicious garlic flavor. I set the machine to Medium Crust. I've been serving it buttered with spaghetti and the Chicken Meatballs by MEP (Chicken Meatballs For Spaghetti and Meatballs). Thanks NovaLee!
Lovely bread with a fine texture and delicate crispy crust. I used my breadmaker to make the dough and then rolled it into a long loaf that I baked on a cookie sheet (350F for 20 minutes). I didn't have bread flour so I used regular and found that I had to add a tablespoon or two of water (probably as a result of the change). We really liked this bread, thanks NovaLee.
very good bread but i used real garlic instead.
This bread is so good!
