I enjoy Baking. I had not baked for almost 2 months now. It was a long weekend here and hence decided to work with yeast. Wanted to try something new. So decided to make Cheesy Garlic Mini Monkey bread (my style).
My kids had no patience to wait for the bread to be out from the oven. The mini Monkey bread vanished in a jiffy. My efforts paid off.
Recipe Cheesy Garlic Mini Monkey Bread:
11 gms Instant Yeast
2 Cups AFP/Maida
1 Tsp Cumin/Jeera
1 Tsp Italian Herbs
1 Cup Mozzarella Cheese
Salt to Taste
1 Tsp Chilli flakes
½ Cup Olive Oil
6-8 Garlic Cloves minced or grated
Add yeast to 160 ML of warm water and leave it for 10 mins to proof.
Mix the flour,Cumin seeds,Italian herbs,salt ,minced garlic and chilli flakes and keep it aside. Once the yeast has proofed well, add it to the flour mixture and mix well. Add olive slowly and mix well to form a stretchy dough. Cover it with a clean kitchen towel and keep it in a warm place for 1 hr. It will be double the size now. Make medium size balls. Use a knife to cut each ball in 8 pcs. Grease a muffin tray generously. Arrange the pieces in the muffin tray and add cheese generously.
In the meantime preheat the oven at 190 C for 10 mins. Place the tray in the preheated oven for 25 mins . Allow it to cool and then serve.The outer crust will be crispy and cheesy in the centre.
