From the shadows of the Italian kitchen into the spotlight of our heart. Garlic knots aren’t just a piece of leftover dough anymore. Tasty, garlicky, Yummy!

As I lately have some time, I had been searching on the internet the other day. On the lookout for new, interesting tips, inspiring recipes that We have never tried before, to delight my family with. Searching for quite some time yet could not find too many interesting stuff. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I found this delicious and simple treat simply by luck over Suncakemom. It looked so mouth-watering on its pic, it required rapid actions.

It had been not difficult to imagine how it is created, its taste and how much my hubby might like it. Actually, it is quite easy to impress the man in terms of treats. Anyway, I went to the page and followed the simple instuctions that had been combined with nice photographs of the task. It really makes life quite easy. I could suppose it’s a bit of a inconvenience to take pics down the middle of cooking in the kitchen as you typically have gross hands and so i really appreciate the hard work she placed in to make this post .

Having said that I’m inspired to present my personal recipes in a similar fashion. Many thanks for the thought.

I had been tweaking the original recipe to make it for the taste of my family. Need to tell you it absolutely was a terrific outcome. They enjoyed the flavour, the consistency and loved getting a delicacy such as this in the middle of a stressful workweek. They ultimately demanded lots more, many more. So next time I’m not going to commit the same mistake. I am gonna double the amount .

Garlic Knot was first invented by SunCakeMom


Dissolve fresh yeast in a half cup of lukewarm (not hot!) milk. Set it aside whilst preparing the other ingredients.

Get a big bowl and put flour, sliced room temperature butter, egg and the lukewarm water in it.

Pour the dissolved yeast into the big bowl on top of the other ingredients.

Knead the mixture well until it’s even and there’s no flour left on the edge of the bowl.

Cover the bowl and leave it in a warm place for about an hour to rise.


Crush or dice up the garlic.

Mix the garlic with the room temperature butter and the rest of the filling ingredients in a small bowl.


Prepare an egg wash by beating up an egg with a crushed garlic, basil, oregano and salt.


After an hour waiting take dough out of the bowl onto a well-floured work surface.

Roll it into a square. Flouring underneath the dough is important as this coating will prevent it to stick down.

Spread the butter with the herbs onto half of the dough.

Fold it in half so the butter creates a layer between the dough.

Then fold it again horizontally.

Leave it in a warm place under a kitchen towel for another 20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350°F / 180°C.

After about 20 minutes when the dough have risen somewhat depending on the temperature.

Put it on a well-floured work surface to roll it in an approximately 10″ x 10″ / 30cm x 30cm square.

Cut about 1″ / 2cm wide stripes. Before cutting up the whole dough experiment with sizes. Find the length and with that is comfortable to make knots with.

Make knots out of the stripe and place roll into the the baking tray.

Give an egg wash to each roll before putting tray into the preheated oven.

If making knots gets boring just twist the stripes and make garlic twists.

Bake it for 20-25 minutes or until top is golden brown.

Eat them warm or cold with some melted cheese for more pleasure.
