A note on cooking
I encourage you to embrace a freestyle way of cooking, and use this recipe as a guide. Don’t get too caught up in measuring things exactly — you can eyeball most things.
Cooking should be relaxing, unfussy and an opportunity for you to exercise your creativity. Don’t forget to taste as you go along, and use your intuition with flavours.
Trust your instinct, on whether it needs more of this, or more of that — cook to what you like!
Preheat the oven to 180°C (356°F) and grease a round 16cm cast iron pan or baking tin with butter. Alternatively you could use a flat baking tray, lined with parchment for a flat garlic bread.
In a medium bowl, mix together the dry ingredients, almond flour, bicarbonate soda, xanthum gum and flaked salt, make a well in the middle
In a saucepan, over a low heat, melt the mozzarella and cream cheese. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes and add to the dry ingredients, along with eggs and apple cider vinegar. Using a fork or spoon, mix together until well combined and it forms a dough. The dough will feel quite damp.
Using wet hands, form the dough into 7 balls and arrange in the round cast iron pan or baking tin. Alternatively, you could shape it into a flat bread — place the dough onto the lined baking tray and flatten down with damp hands.
Bake in the oven for 20–25 minutes until golden and cooked through.
While the bread cooks, get on with the making the garlic butter. Melt the butter in a saucepan over a low heat. Add the garlic and cook gently for about 3 minutes until softened. Take off the heat and add parsley.
Once the bread is cooked, pierce it several times using a knife. Pour over the garlic butter, season with salt and allow to soak into the bread for a few moments.
