  • Oven


  • 1/3 cup Whole milk Warm
  • 1 tablespoon Whole milk Warm
  • 2+1/2 teaspoon Instant yeast
  • 1 teaspoon Honey
  • 3 unit Eggs
  • 4 cup Bread flour
  • 1 tablespoon Salt
  • 2+1/2 tablespoon Butter Room temperature

Garlic & Herbs Butter

  • 4+1/2 teaspoon Butter
  • 1/2 cup Fresh basil Or any herb you choose
  • 1/2 cup Chive
  • 1 Garlic clove
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chili flakes


  • Combine the warm milk, instant yeast and let it rest for some minutes (you won’t need this step if you use fresh yeast). 
  • Now you can add the honey teaspoon, the eggs, bread flour and salt and start kneading with your kitchen robot or by hand. 
  • When all the ingredients are perfectly combined, add the butter room temperature (20 g).
  • Keep kneading until you have a dough that don’t stick on your hands. 
  • Place the bread into a bowl and let it raise for 1 hour covered with film. 
  • To prepare the butter blend the garlic and fresh herbs you will use and the chili flakes. Once your ingredients are crushed and the garlic and mix it for one minute. 
  • Let your garlic and herbs butter at room temperature. 
  • Knead your bread by hand for one minute and extend it forming a rectangle with a rolling pin. 
  • Spread the garlic butter on top of the bread. 
  • Roll the bread and cut it in half lengthwise. Cross the bread over each other and place it into a mold. You can form it on the way you choose. I recommend to use a molt, make this step easier. 
  • Let the bread rise for 1 hour.
  • Bake it for 30 minutes 356º Fahrenheit (180º Celsius)
  • Let it cool over a rack and enjoy!
