Have been wanting to try out this recipe for a while, but somehow just never got to it until now. (Also, there were some pretty delicious looking loafs in The Great British Bake-Off a while back, which motivated me to bake one for myself.)

Week 138: Savoury garlic rolls

The ladies of the baking community in my neighbourhood is looking for someone to conduct a session on baking assorted bread rolls. And in the spirit of volunteering, I decided to bake up some of my favourite garlic rolls to see if “they” qualify.
