Lazy Man’s Garlic Bread

I was looking for something to buy for tea time snack when this pumpkin loaf caught my attention. I didn’t know why, but it somehow made me think of my garlic granules.

So I parted with RM 5 and bought it. When I got home from work, I finally realized the reason why seeing this pumpkin loaf made me think of the garlic granules. So I quickly set off to make that thing.

First, I took out my remaining blob of Golden Churn butter from the fridge and let it sit on room temperature for half an hour. Then I added a couple tablespoons of the garlic granules into the butter and mixed it all up.

Then I teared the loaf off into individual slices and spread them onto a baking sheet.

Then I slathered the garlic butter onto one side of each slice of bread.

Then I sprinkled some pepper and even more garlic granules on top of the butter.

Then I threw the bread into the oven. 180Β°C for 10 minutes. Of course, alternatively you can also do this on a toaster or a griddle pan… or make a real bread in one of the Village Bakery machines, which should not take a lot of time too.

And this is the result, my pumpkin garlic bread. Or garlic pumpkin bread.

It was phenomenal! Something so simple, yet so delicious! Unlike the usual garlic bread that is only savory, this one has the subtle pumpkin sweetness to complement it. So so good!

Of course, this pumpkin loaf is also more expensive than the usual Maximo or Garfenia bread. I’ve just given you another reason to accuse me of being rich.

But then, this was dinner. And the combined cost of thisΒ is probably just RM 7. That’s cheaper than eating out.

Maybe I’m not that rich after all. πŸ˜€



  1. With all the money you have saved eating at home, you are definitely a rich man.
    I like to eat thick garlic toasts like you have made. They are so heavenly to sink my teeth while still warm.

    • Who says eating at home means saving? My home cooked meals most of the time are slightly more expensive compared to tapao from outside.

  2. Since you’re so ‘rich’ πŸ˜‰ may I suggest you get yourself a bottle of dried parsley flakes too and sprinkle that on your garlic bread…yums! Hmmm, garlic bread with pumpkin bread…interesting! I’ve never made it with any other bread other than just plain bread.

    • No, no parsley and those sh*t. That accidental canister of thyme is still rotting in my disposal. 😐

      • I actually started eating all these western herbs at a much later age too but have since grown to love it….they lent such perfume, aroma and taste to the dish that you can cut down on the use of other unhealthy seasonings.

  3. Give me all please.. Looks really good, especially with a bowl of Campbell cream of mushroom.. Eh, this is not simple jor lor.. If simple ahh, I terus buy garlic butter and spread it on bread..

    • Buy garlic butter = have to drive out, find parking, find garlic butter, queue up, pay, drive home, find parking… That one baru not simple. My methods are much simpler! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  4. It looks good! When I used to be not lazy, I’d make garlic bread with real garlic. I’d mince a bunch of garlic cloves until I get almost a garlic mush, mix that with soft melted butter, spread over the bread, and then bake. And since I LOVE garlic, I could use a lot more of it than what you get in stores. So good!

    • If I was using raw garlic, I’d use more than this too! But the garlic granules that I was using, it was freaking expensive, so I have to be less “generous” with it. It is real garlic though, just crushed and toasted. There is no other additives to it, at least as per the information on the label.

  5. Hey RG, the pumpkin bread with garlic butter looks very good wor! I feel like taking a nice piece now… This is definitely not lazy but healthy….

    • But it was a lot of bread to be honest. My mom would definitely say that when she sees this. πŸ˜›

  6. I think you mean Gardenia bread. Haven’t had that in a long, long time πŸ˜€ This was dinner? Hope you didn’t get hungry after that. Garlic granules. They seem to be a very popular condiment in your kitchen. Let’s see how long this canister lasts and if it’s worth your money πŸ˜‰

    By the way, this garlic bread looks really good.

    • Hahaha yes, I’m taking a page out of another blogger’s textbook to twist certain brand names to prevent giving them free publicity, although in my case it is just for fun. πŸ˜›

      Well, my canister is 15% empty now. Since I have it, I will use it quite frequently, that’s for sure. πŸ˜€
