A Foggy Morn in Queensland and Triple Garlic Bread

It is just starting to feel a bit like Autumn in my part of Australia with chilly nights and mornings and gorgeously warm and sunny days.

I absolutely love waking up early to foggy scenes like this.

No matter how tired I am I can’t tear myself away from my bedroom window and sit there happily with my morning cup of tea.


The fog never lasts long, so I treasure every mysterious and magical moment of it.


When sunshine scatters the last misty remnants, I head to my kitchen to make my new favorite bread: Triple Garlic.

Using the bread machine to do the hard work of mixing and kneading, I simply dump in the ingredients and return a while later to do final kneading and shaping. There’s something so homey and comforting about seeing the bread rising in a sunny spot on my counter, and even before baking, the garlicky smells fill my kitchen. I slide the risen dough into a hot oven and 45 minutes later a golden loaf is cooling on the kitchen table, almost ready to be cut into thick slices and slathered with butter.


What’s your favorite breakfast on a foggy morning?

Triple Garlic Bread


1 cup cold water
2 cups whole grain flour
1 cup white flour
1 Tbsp raw sugar
1 1/2 tsp sea salt
2 Tbsp milk powder
1 Tbsp powdered garlic
1 Tbsp dehydrated garlic
2 Tbsp minced garlic
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 envelope yeast (2 tsp)


  1. Place all ingredients in bowl of bread machine. Place on Dough setting and leave until buzzer sounds.
  2. Remove dough from bread machine and place on flour-dusted counter or table.
  3. Knead 5-10 times, shape into oblong and place in greased or baking paper-lined bread pan.
  4. Cover with clean, dry dish towel and let rise for 30-40 minutes until top is well rounded.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees F for 30-45 minutes until top is golden brown and loaf sounds hollow when you tap on it.
  6. Remove from pan and place on cooling rack. Brush top with olive oil and leave to cool to desired temperature. I like it best served warm or toasted and slathered with butter. Also makes delicious grilled cheese sandwiches.
