Garlic Pine Nut Bread


I'd been thinking for quite a while about using raw garlic directly in bread dough. For the first test, though, I couldn't resist using some pine nuts as well, since we had them around. I varied this off of my mixer bread recipe.

I used all white flour and olive oil. I put the garlic and pine nuts in right as I started mixing the dough, 1/2 cup pine nuts and 6 cloves (about 1 tbs) minced garlic.

The only weird thing was that once the dough was mixed, squeezing it caused the pine nuts to pop out. The end result was a delicious bread with a pleasant but not overpowering garlic and nut flavor.
