The garlic is baked straight into this easy to make bread machine loaf. Ideal as a side bread to any Italian meal or barbeque.
Altered ingredient amounts. I made the dough in the bread machine, then rolled it out onto a pan and made cuts in it and baked it in the oven for garlic bread sticks. I then brushed olive oil and sprinkled minced garlic and parmesan cheese (close to end of baking) on it. We ate the whole thing that night. But i find the amount of garlic in the recipe doesnt give it enough of a garlic flavour. - 08 Oct 2008
Something else. Overall, I'd say this recipe was very good, though I did take the advice of other reviewers and ended up modifying mine somewhat. I did not have any powdered milk, so I used 4 tbs of condensed milk-- I think adding actual liquid instead of dried / powdered milk improves this bread because others have complained of it being too dry. I added 1/2 tsp oregano, 1 tsp rosemary and used vegetable oil instead of butter. I always hate the look of bread baked in a bread machine, so I set my machine for a dough cycle and finished the bread in the oven. When the dough cycle was completed, the bread had not risen very much at all even though the yeast was fresh. I turned the dough out onto a baking tray, covered and let rise for another half hour, then baked for about 50 mins, brushing the top of the loaf with more oil before baking and again halfway through. When it was done, the bread was VERY soft and dense, the crust was perfection. I had friends over, and the entire loaf was eaten by us with just butter. Everyone loved it! I will be making another loaf tomorrow . - 08 Oct 2008
