This week blew by so fast. We accepted an offer on our house and went into full house hunting mode. This is in addition to all of us fighting off a cold and then me hurting my foot. Gah. I woke up Saturday and realized I hadn’t even thought of what to make for my recipe on Monday.
At first I was thinking calzone but then I was pinched for time since we decided to make an offer on a house and I thought. Ok, garlic bread time.
Now, I have shown this recipe in a loaf format but I’m going to recommend that you make rolls. Seriously, if you make it in to a loaf the center will be very soft and squishy and it will take FOREVER to bake. I put this in the oven for over 1 hour and 30 minutes and it still needed more time. This is the first time I tried it as a loaf and it just did not work.
So, make rolls and roll them into 1″ balls. You will get rolls that are slightly crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The neat thing about this dough is that you can actually knead it.
I have had numerous people try this recipe and it has been hit or miss. Some people can make this recipe as is and it comes out perfectly. Some need to add more tapioca flour to get it work. Some need to use a food processor or kitchen stand mixer to get the dough to come out.
There are a lot of factors that go into baking: 1) your oven 2) your altitude and humidity and possibly even the flour you are using. I only use Bob’s Red Mill Tapioca Flour in all of my baking. I would consider this recipe to be an advanced cooking level recipe and you will have to watch the video to make sure your dough looks similar to what I have shown. I know this is my pretzel recipe but it’s the recipe is very similar. I will have up a video tutorial for this done by February 2014.
- In a small pan combine the olive oil, water and sea salt and bring to a boil.
