This recipe is good for 2 loaves

Crusty exterior and soft chewy interior
is expected in a good Garlic Loaf

To achieve such texture
many opt to
toast a slice of baguette or sandwich slice,
with a generous spread of garlic, herbs and butter on top.

This is simply a slice of bread with garlic topping
it is called a garlic toast!

After searching & testing
I have finally come up with this 
delicious and aromatic,
Crusty and yet soft Garlic Loaf

Recipe adapted from Chew Out Loud

Crusty Garlic Loaf
(A) Roasted Garlic
      1 garlic clove, 1) cut across & wrap in aluminium foil
                              2) bake in preheated oven 150'C for 35min
                              3) let cool, remove skin & mash the soft garlic with fork

Nice, thanks for sharing. The recipe stated dough cycle 1.5 hrs,
is it including the ferment time? Or kneading for 1.5 hr ?

Katie Foong: Yes, including the fermenting time
