Recipe for Cheesy Garlic Bread

Basic Ingredients Used to Make this Recipe:

Maida: I have made the bread dough with All-purpose flour but you can replace maida with whole wheat flour.

Milk: We’ve added lukewarm milk and a little lukewarm water to bring the dough together because the addition of milk makes the dough softer.

Sugar: Sugar is essential for this recipe. Sugar acts as a catalyst that kicks start the yeast fermentation process.

Yeast: I have used active dry yeast. You can use either active dry yeast or instant yeast. Instant yeast takes less time for proofing. But most importantly use good quality yeast.

Garlic: Of course, it is a must-add.

Maize Flour: It gives a rough texture and a different flavor. So I love adding this ingredient.

Butter: We would need lots of butter also for this recipe.

Mayonnaise: Here is the twist, the addition of mayonnaise. Do add this ingredient to get the best result.

Mozzarella Cheese: You would need some mozzarella cheese, freshly grated melts the best.

If you see the mozzarella cheese on top burning, you can switch off the top rod in the oven if you have that option. Otherwise, bake the bread without adding the mozzarella cheese on top for the first 5 minutes. Then take it out from the oven and spread the mozzarella cheese and place it once again in the oven and bake it for another 10-12 minutes

Frequently Asked Questions about Cheesy Garlic Bun:

Why is Garlic Bread so Hard?

Use warm water, but not hot water when blooming the yeast. Don’t over-knead, either! Developing the gluten too much will cause a tough loaf.

What is the difference between dry yeast and instant dry yeast?

Active dry yeast and instant yeast both help leaven bread and provide an airy, light texture, but they do so in slightly different ways and there’s one major difference in how you use them: Active dry yeast needs to be dissolved in water before using, while instant yeast can be mixed right into dry ingredients.

What happens to bread with too much yeast?

Too much yeast could cause the dough to go flat by releasing gas before the flour is ready to expand. If you let the dough rise too long, it will start having a yeast or beer smell and taste and ultimately deflate or rise poorly in the oven and have a light crust.

Can you replace active dry yeast with instant yeast?

Active dry yeast and instant yeast can generally be used interchangeably, one-for-one (although active dry yeast may be slower to rise). So if a recipe calls for instant yeast and you use active dry yeast instead, you may want to consider adding an extra 10 to 15 minutes for the rise time.

Will Salt kill yeast in bread?

Salt does retard yeast growth, and in concentrations that are too high, it can indeed kill the yeast. In judicious amounts, salt is what brings out the flavor in the bread and controls yeast growth so that the resulting crumb is nice and even.

Why did my dough for the bun not rise?

There are two possibilities. You over-kneaded the dough, or the yeast is bad. In 90% of the cases, it is because the yeast is bad. So you might want to check the yeast and use a good one.

What can be used instead of yeast?

You can use Baking powder, baking soda, and sourdough starters as substitutes. You can read more about the same here.
