Garlic Sunflower Bread - #BreadBakers

Today I had a rough day at work. I had to tell my coworkers that I was leaving. It was completely unexpected and sucked big time. In 24 hours, I'll be in a different country, starting a new chapter of my life.

I'm not prepared. I'm reeling. I'm glad that I took time out to bake this bread. I'd been neglecting my blog for the last few months while my life took crazy twists and turns. Hopefully, this new chapter brings back regular blogging.

The bread is supposed to be a sunflower. Clearly, I didn't do as great a job as the original but it's still clearly flower-like. Right? I didn't make any major changes to the recipe. The theme for this month's Bread Bakers is garlic so instead of a plain butter filling, I used garlic butter. I didn't have black sesame seeds so I used parsley. No big deal.

I'll then ask you to visit Jo Cooks for the beautiful version and the recipe. My garlic butter filling that I generously used is below.

Be sure to visit all the other Bread Bakers too!!

Garlic Sunflower Bread

Dough and instructions on Jo Cooks

Garlic Butter Filling
113 grams extremely soft butter
10 cloves finely minced and crushed garlic
Garlic powder to taste

Mix the ingredients together. Taste and add more garlic if needed. A little pepper would be great too.

Brush the garlic butter generously over each layer and over the center dough.

BreadBakers #BreadBakers is a group of bread loving bakers who get together once a month to bake bread with a common ingredient or theme. Follow our Pinterest board right here. Links are also updated each month on this home page.
