Garlic Sticks

Makes: 36 Garlic Sticks or 48 Twisters   Oven: 200 °C / 400 °F
Preparation Time: 1 hour 40 minutes   Baking Time: 8 – 10 minutes

Ingredients

500 g Cake flour ( 4 x 250 ml / 4 cups )
10 ml Salt ( 2 tsp )
5 ml Sugar ( 1 tsp )
10 g Anchor Instant Yeast ( 1 packet )
300 ml Lukewarm water ( ± 1¼ cups )
45 ml Olive oil ( 3 tbsp )
125 g Margarine ( ½ cup )
10 ml Crushed garlic ( 2 tsp )
5 ml Chopped parsley ( 1 tsp )

Method

  1. Mix all dry ingredients together, add the
    Anchor Instant Yeast and mix together well.
  2. Add enough lukewarm water to form a soft dough and
    knead the dough well until smooth and elastic, about
    10 minutes.
  3. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface, cover with
    greased plastic and leave to rest for 5 minutes.
  4. Melt the margarine, add garlic and parsley and allow
    to cool until lukewarm.
  5. Knock the dough down and divide into 36 equal pieces.
    Roll each piece into a strip of about 15 cm.
  6. Dip each into the garlic butter and place onto a baking
    tray, slightly apart from each other.
  7. Cover with greased plastic and allow to rise in a warm
    place for 15 minutes.
  8. Bake in a preheated oven at 200 °C / 400 °F for
    8 – 10 minutes, or until golden brown.

Variation

Follow the steps 1 – 3 for the garlic sticks. Knock the
dough down and roll out into a rectangle. Cut into
5 mm (¼ inch) strips and then cut the dough in half
lengthwise, about 48 strips. Brush the strips with
water and sprinkle with barbeque spice,
herb spice, peri-peri or coarse salt. Twist each strip 3 times and
place next to one another onto a greased baking
tray. Cover with greased plastic and allow to rise in a
warm place, about 10 minutes. Bake in a preheated
oven at 200 °C / 400 °F for 8 – 10 minutes, or
until golden brown.
