Reading my posts you probably already know how much I love baking. Nothing says “Home” better than  freshly baked bread. To master the good dough might take you few trials. This recipe is so much fun. Not only because is relevantly easy or because the smell of all the herbs will bring back your childhood memories, but because you don`t need to slice it once ready. Yes! Imagine you will have the perfect crust and soft heart and all that already sliced and ready to eat!

In my bread I used fresh and dry herbs, plus sumac that gives a bit zesty taste and black garlic. The black garlic is somehow cured garlic with balsamic vinegar and it can be found in Market and Platters. It tastes sweet rather than garlicky and it`s an interesting addition. You can add ingredients of your choice as the recipe is flexible.

I took photos every step of the way so you can see how exactly the magic is happening.

NOTE: The time for rising of the dough might vary. Since here is hot and humid I didn`t need more than 20 mins, but if your climate is different then give it at least an hour.

Ingredients:

– 500 g white flour (sifted)

– 300 ml warm water

– 1 sachet dry yeast

– 1 tsp sugar

– 1 tsp salt

– olive oil

– handul parsley

–  1 tsp dry oregano

– 1 tbsp fresh rosemary

– 1 tsp sumac

– 3 cloves black garlic

  1. I would try it if I was not a total disaster baking anything that involves flour 🙈 But I already imagine how perfectly it will fit with the creamy walnut french cheese that I’ve just bought 😋
