500 g Strong white flour
 300 ml Luke warm water
 1 tsp sugar
 1 tsp Dry instant yeast
 10 Cloves of crushed garlic
 150 ml Olive oil
 ¼ cup Nutritional yeast
 Sea salt and cracked black pepper
 Dried or fresh herbs to your liking,ie parsley, thyme and oregano





In a medium jug add the lukewarm water, sugar and yeast. Let sit for about 10 mins until you see the yeast starting to get a little foamy.


In a large stand mixer bowl add the flour then the yeast mixture and mix on low with a dough hook for 15 mins. If you don't have a stand mixer don't worry you just need a little elbow grease, instead, you can just mix the flour and yeast mixture in large bowl until it forms a dough ball. Then empty out onto a floured surface and knead for 10 to 12 mins.

Now that you have a beautiful silky ball of dough its time to make it into multiple little balls of dough. Just by pinching a small amount of dough with your fingers may be a golfball size. Softly roll into a ball and place in a large bowl.

Once you have a bowl of little dough balls its now time to bath them in herby, garlicky deliciousness. Add all the remaining ingredients into a small bowl and combine. Now drizzle over the dough balls. Gently mix them around, ensure each ball gets coated in the garlic oil.

Transfer your dough balls into the dish you plan to bake them in, I like to use the cake tin with the hole in the middle as it allows me to pile the dough balls up on top of each other. Now it is time to allow your dough balls to rest and double in size.


Cover with a clean tea towel and place in a warm area in your kitchen for 60 mins and let the yeast do its job.


Preheat your over to 180deg. Once the dough balls have doubled in size its time to bake them. Pop in the oven for 25 mins and until slightly golden on top.


Allow cooling a little before flipping your monkey bread out of the tin. Enjoy acting like an animal and devouring your garlic monkey bread!!
