Bread Braids With Garlic and Herbs de Provence



(Makes 4-6)

125 g all-purpose flour

125 g whole wheat flour 

25 g fresh yeast 

150 ml warm water 

1 Tbsp sugar 

1 tsp salt

1/4 cups olive oil 

2 garlic cloves (pressed) 

1 tsp herbs de Provence 

  • Put the yeast in a small bowl and cover with sugar. Wait a few minutes until the yeast starts melting.
  • In the meantime, sieve both flours into a large bowl and add the salt.
  • Add 50 ml of warm water + 4 Tbsp of the flour mix into the bowl with yeast and sugar. Mix it well and let it rest for 15 min.
  • After 15 min combine the yeast slowly with the flour and add the remaining water as well as one Tbsp of olive oil.
  • Transfer the dough to a working space and knead the dough for a few minutes until smooth ( add a little flour if necessary).
  • Put the dough back in the bowl and sat in a warm place for 1 hour. 
  • Shortly before the time is up set the oven to 460 °F (240 °C).
  • The dough should have grown to double the size. Divide it into four pieces and form little balls.
  • Divide each ball into three pieces and roll them with your hands into three ropes, tapered at the ends. Braid the ropes into three strand braids. Prepare a baking sheet, lined with baking paper, and place the braids on it.
  • In a little bowl, combine the remaining olive oil and the pressed garlic.
  • Brush braids with the garlic, olive oil mix, and sprinkle with herbs de Provence.
  • Bake for 10-12 min. Et Voila!
