Anyway, I had to give it a try. It sounded way too easy. Basically, to make this bread you mix the dough ingredients, spread it in a pan, leave it for 1 hour, then bake it. Too easy. Granted there is time involved, but it’s time just waiting for the dough to rise and cook. It was so easy and yummy.
Blitz Bread is similar to a focaccia.
I think this bread would best be served along with a bowl of soup or some pasta. The consistency of the bread would be perfect for dipping into soup or sopping up pasta sauce. It’s got a little crunch on the outside, with chewy goodness in the middle. It’s similar to Focaccia. There is also some versatility to this bread. You can use what ever herbs go along with what you will serve it with.
Now, this first time I didn’t add the garlic and herbs to the dough as listed in Melanie’s recipe. I knew the seasoning mix I was going to sprinkle on the top was pretty strong, so I didn’t want the bread to be too over powering. Johnny’s garlic spread and seasoning is what I used to sprinkle on top. I got a big bottle of it from Costco or Sam’s Club. I can’t remember which one. The seasoning has garlic, Parmesan cheese, oregano, basil, and parsley in it. I can’t wait to try it again with some different herbs.
This recipe is definitely a keeper. Come back tomorrow when I am going to share one of my favorite dessert recipes. It’s a twist on a classic bakery treat.
