20 mins to prep

1.5 hours to set

15 mins to bake

Step 1

If mixing by hand: Add all the bread ingredients to a large bowl and mix until it comes together. On a floured surface, knead the dough for 5 minutes or until it becomes smooth and stretchy.

If you have a stand mixer: Add all the bread ingredients to your mixer with the dough hook attachment. Mix on low speed until the dough comes together. Then knead on high speed until the dough is smooth and stretchy.

Step 2

Place the dough in a bowl and cover with a tea towel. Set it aside in a warm spot for at least 1 hour or until the dough doubles in size.

Step 3

Shape the dough into 12 equal parts. Roll each part into a long strip then fold over into a knot shape.

Step 4

Preheat the oven to 200°C (convection) or 180°C (fan-forced).

Step 5

Arrange the knots on a lined baking tray. Cover with a tea towel and set it aside in a warm spot for at least 30 minutes or until the dough is puffy again.

Step 6

Bake the knots for around 12-15 minutes or until they’re golden brown on top. While they’re baking, mix all the ingredients for the garlic butter in a small bowl.

Step 7

When the knots are still hot from the oven, generously coat them with the garlic butter. Serve warm.


Instant dry yeast doesn’t need to be proofed before using it in a recipe. However, if you use another type of yeast, mix it with warm water (same amount as in the ingredients) and a pinch of sugar. When the mixture bubbles, mix it with the rest of the ingredients.
