  • 50g butter
  • 2 bulbs of garlic
  • 1 tbsp chopped thyme

  1. Place the garlic bulbs in an ovenproof dish and slow roast for 45 minutes until soft. Allow to cool.
  2. Follow the instructions for the Sourdough Loaf in the previous recipe after the first proving, roll the dough into a rectangle approx. 1cm thick and evenly spread the butter over the surface.
  3. Squeeze the roasted garlic from the cloves onto the sourdough, spread evenly. Sprinkle over the thyme, salt and pepper.
  4. Roll up the dough like a swiss roll then cut lengthways down the middle. Twist the two lengths over one another from one end to the other. Shape into a loop, bringing the ends together, and place on a baking tray.
  5. Leave in a warm place to prove for 30-40 minutes until doubled in size. Drizzle with olive oil then bake in a preheated oven set at 200°C/400°F for 25-30 minutes until golden.
