This wild garlic tear and share bread is such a great idea for a meal with a group. This isn't your average garlic bread, it's been taken to a new level. We've used Allinson's Additions which is a sachet of flavour. It's really easy to use and available in the shops near the yeast and flours.


  1. Mix together the flour, salt, sugar, Wild Garlic additions and yeast.  Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

  2. Add enough water to form a soft but not sticky dough.

  3. Knead the dough for 10 minutes either by machine with a dough hook or on a lightly floured work surface.

  4. When your dough feels smooth and silky, put it into a lightly oiled bowl.  Cover the bowl with oiled cling film or a damp tea cloth and leave to rise in a warm place for about 45 minutes - 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in size.

  5. Lightly grease and line a 23-inch round cake tin ready to place the bread in.

  6. Tip the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knock back to remove the air. Divide the dough into 16 equal pieces and roll each one into a ball.

  7. Place one dough ball at the centre of the baking tin and arrange the rest of the dough balls around it. Cover with a clean plastic bag. Leave the dough balls to prove until doubled in size. This should take about one hour.

  8. Preheat the oven to 220°C, fan 200°C, gas 6.

  9. Place the loaf on the middle shelf and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Allow to cool for a few minutes before turning out onto a wire rack. Brush with melted butter and serve while still warm

    Confusing tin sizes!
    Utensils section - 23x13cm loaf tin. Step 5 23” round cake tin. Looking at photo decided on 23cm round cake tin but please clarify the depth of tin required. Mine is 3” deep and has turned out like a round blob as this was too tall!
    Hi there, apologies for any confusion caused this is definitely a 23cm round tin required - we will get this error amended. A 3" deep tin should be sufficient although the bread may come to the top of the tin but should hold this shape throughout baking. Lots of luck and happy baking :)

    Beautiful recipe. I’ve made this twice now and I’m not great at making bread generally. Both times the loaf has turned out insta worthy.
