What could be better for a barbecue? What can you enjoy at a party with all kinds of dips? What is a hit at every picnic? Exactly - bread with herb-garlic butter😍 This bread is so easy to make and tastes amazing. Kneaded in 5 minutes, it just needs to rise and be filled to your liking. I like it with a veerrryyy garlicky herb butter. However, as always, there are no limits to creativity. Why not give it a go with my wild garlic hummus or avocado pesto! Or even with cheese, depending on your mood.

2tbsp Sugar

Combine milk, yeast, sugar, butter and the egg in a large bowl. Then slowly add the flour and knead for a few minutes until a smooth dough is formed. Then let rise in a warm place for an hour while covered.

Roll out the dough on a floured surface into a rectangle. Spread the filling evenly.


Roll up the dough and place on a baking sheet. Then cut twice lengthwise to make three strands of dough for the braid. Then twist into a loose braid. When doing this, "pinch" the braid a little.

Let the braid rise again for 30 minutes. Then bake at 180°C for about 25 minutes.
