Can I use fresh garlic cloves to make garlic parmesan bread?

Yes, you can use pressed garlic cloves instead of garlic powder. In this recipe, you should use 1 clove of garlic per ½ teaspoon of garlic powder, so 3 cloves for the 2-pound loaf, 4 for the 2½-pound loaf, and 5 for the 3-pound loaf. It might seem too much, but garlic will lose some flavor since we will cook it.

Can I use whole wheat flour instead of white flour?

Yes, but whole wheat flour yields a denser loaf, so you may prefer using 3⁄4 of the white flour in the recipe. You will find the best amount that works perfectly by experience.

This garlic parmesan bread recipe differs from most recipes. Garlic parmesan bread recipes are usually made by spreading garlic parmesan mixture on French bread slices and baking the slices in an oven. However, with this recipe, the bread that comes off the bread maker already has garlic and parmesan. So, no need for additional work. You just put the ingredients into the bread machine, and it makes garlic parmesan bread for you!

Garlic parmesan bread is a delicious accompaniment to any meal but is traditionally served along with chicken wings and pizza. You can also use it to make sandwiches for lunch to take to school or work.
