Bread Dough:
Bread flour – 350 grams
Yeast – 15 grams
Butter – 30 grams
Sugar – 1 gram
Salt – 4 grams
Lukewarm water (25 -30°C) – 250 ml

  • Sift together the flour, salt, and sugar into a bowl.
  • Add the butter and the yeast to the flour and rub through thoroughly, until it is well spread throughout.
  • Once all the water has been absorbed and the dough starts forming a ball shape, start kneading until the dough is ready (12-15 minutes).
  • Cover the dough and allow to rise for 45 minutes – 1 hour.
  • Cover the table with some flour, roll the dough into a long log shape and portion into the size preference as you are desired.

Braaiing the Bread

  • Place the bread onto the Braai grid and braai over a low-medium heat, turning consistently until it is done.
  • It would feel a lot lighter when it is ready to be removed from the grid.

For the Garlic & Rosemary Butter

  • Whisk the soft butter with the garlic, rosemary, parsley, salt, and pepper together.
  • Place the butter in a log shape onto the wax paper, fold over the end and roll tightly into a log shape.
  • Pinch off both end of the wax paper and tie each end using the rope. Trim off excess paper to neaten the final product up.
