You don't need a conventional oven for making garlic bread. Two methods for baking this tasty bread exist -- toasting pre-made bread with garlic butter or baking a garlic-infused bread from scratch. Accomplish both of these on your hob or grill with the use of a Dutch oven. Made from heavy cast iron, a Dutch oven resembles a large covered soup tureen. The iron holds heat and evenly transfers it to the food, allowing you to bake bread on your hob or on a grill.

Things you need

  • Cast iron Dutch oven
  • Oven gloves
  • Aluminium foil
  • White or wheat bread dough risen and ready for baking
  • Food thermometer
  • 10 ml (2 tsp) garlic powder
  • 30 ml (2 tbsp) butter
  • Mixing bowl
  • Pre-made bread
  • Knife or spatula

    Dough method

  1. 1

    Place the Dutch oven on a hob or grill over a medium-high heat for 20 minutes to preheat.

    Handling the hot Dutch oven with oven gloves, place a piece of aluminium foil in the bottom of the oven.

  3. 3

    Combine the garlic powder with the butter in a mixing bowl and knead it into the bread dough.

  4. 4

    Shape the dough into a round loaf and put in the bottom of the Dutch oven, cover with a lid.

  5. 5

    Turn the heat of a gas grill to high or keep the hob at a medium-high heat and place the Dutch oven over the heat.

  6. 6

    Cook the bread for 30 to 40 minutes or until a food thermometer reads 94 degrees C (200F).

  7. 7

    Remove the Dutch oven from the hob or grill and let the bread cool in the pan for five minutes before removing.

    Loaf method

  1. 1

    Slice prepared bread into slices or cut an entire loaf in half. Heat the Dutch oven on a hob over a medium-high heat.

  2. 2

    Mix the garlic powder and butter in a mixing bowl.
