For as long as I can remember, I’ve avoided baking bread. In fact, I’ve avoided making it like the plague. I’m a very quick-and-easy kind of person and, well… I don’t like waiting for bread to rise or the multiple steps it entails. You too? Good, glad I’m not the only one.

Enter rapid rise dough. Whoever invented rapid rise dough is a genius.

I’ve been trying out a few rapid-rise bread recipes and this has to be the favourite of all the ones I’ve tried so far. These garlic rolls take 30 minutes to make from start to finish (or start to stomach, as I like to put it) and they’re fluffy and incredibly soft. I made these for lunch and as soon as they came out of the oven, I cut my roll lengthways in half and put sliced cheese and ham inside it. I’m sorry I don’t have a picture… I was going to photograph it for you all to see, but yeah. I don’t know how it disappeared so fast. #sorrynotsorry

Not a fan having garlic and butter as your topping? Not to worry: cinnamon, icing sugar and milk makes an excellent glaze to turn these into sweet buns. Or you could even just have them plain. Either way, give these a go and see just how easy these are to do – and how soft and fluffy they are!

Garlic Knots
makes 12

1/4 cup butter
1 cup milk
2 tbsp instant yeast
1 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp salt
1 large egg
3 – 3 ½ cups all-purpose flour

Garlic Butter
2 T. butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp garlic powder
3-4 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 200C. Line a baking tray with baking paper and set aside. Melt butter then stir in the milk. Heat until almost boiling. Meanwhile, add yeast and honey in a bowl When milk mixture is at temperature, add to yeast and honey; stir to combine. Add salt and egg, and stir until combined. Stir in 2 ½ cups of flour. Add remaining flour until dough clings to paddle and cleans the sides of the bowl. Knead by hand for about 5 minutes. With lightly floured hands, shape dough into 12 knots, and place dough on prepared baking sheet. Cover, and let dough rest for 10 minutes. Bake for about 9-12 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. While the knots are baking, prepare the garlic butter. In a small bowl, stir together ingredients for garlic butter. After removing the rolls from the oven, brush with garlic butter.
