Garlic Knots

Finding the perfect recipe for dinner rolls, that are soft and spongy, that go well with dinner or even on their own can be tough. But I have found the recipe you are looking for. A recipe that is easy to follow, no fuss and it comes together beautifully. Top the garlic knots with garlic butter for more flavour.

garlic knots

Preparation Time 3 hours - including rise time

Cook Time 20 minutes 20 minutes

Yields 9 knots


7/8 cup warm water

1 teaspoon milk powder

1 teaspoon instant yeast

1/2 tablespoon sugar

1 1/2 tablespoons butter

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

2 cup flour

garlic knots

Garlic butter

2 tablespoons butter

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning

1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Whisk the water, yeast, milk powder and sugar in a bowl. Allow the mixture to rest for 10 minutes until bloomed.

  2. Once the yeast is bloomed, add the oil, salt, garlic powder and half of the flour. Beat on a low speed with a dough hook for 15 minutes. Add the remaining flour and beat on a low speed for 10 minutes until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.

  3. Grease a bowl with oil and turn the dough out into the bowl. Cover with clingfilm and place the bowl in a warm place for 1.5 - 2 hours until doubled in size.

  4. Once the dough is doubled in size, cut the dough into 9 pieces. Shape each piece into a 6 inch long log. Tie each into a knot and tuck the edges under the knot. Place the knots onto a parchment lined 8x8 inch pyrex dish. Let them rise for 30 minutes.

  5. Combine the ingredients for the garlic butter.

  6. Preheat the oven to 200c. Brush the knots with half of the garlic butter.

  7. Bake the knots for 20-22 minutes until golden.

  8. Remove them from the oven and brush them with the remaining garlic butter and garnish with chopped coriander.
