Ingredients

  • Large white round crusty loaf, such as pain de campagne
  • 100g butter, softened
  • Finely grated zest of 2 lemons
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • Small handful of fresh flatleaf parsley, finely chopped
  • A few sprigs of fresh thyme, leaves stripped

Method

  1. Mix the butter with the lemon zest, garlic and herbs.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan180°C/gas 6. Slice the loaf almost all of the way down, leaving the base intact to hold it together.
  3. Smear the butter over the cut sides, then wrap the whole loaf in foil. Place on a baking sheet in the oven for 5-6 minutes, then peel back the foil and cook for a further 4-5 minutes to crisp up. Serve immediately, allowing people to tear off their own buttery slice.
