Pull Apart Garlic Bread

Say these words after me….

OH.

MY.

YUM.

Pull Apart Garlic Bread

That’s all I needed. You can be done here. You can scroll as fast as your little finger will take you to the recipe and start baking. That’s how good this bread is. Well, you will need a few things. Some bread flour, a few other ingredients, a thing called TIME. Not thyme.

You know that thing that we have lots of everyday but wonder where it went? That thing. This bread takes about 30 minutes of your time to prepare. Less if you’re an advanced baker. Then the rest of the time is just waiting. That’s other thing that we tend to not always be good at. A little waiting for rising and a little waiting for baking is all it takes.

Pull Apart Garlic Bread

Bam! Before you know you’ll be pulling off pieces of this delicious bread and telling everyone around matter of factly that “They must try this bread NOW!” before you eat it all.

Not like I know from experience. It’s just what might happen after that first bite.

Pull Apart Garlic Bread

 

I haven’t baked bread in awhile. And I was really missing it. The summer is going great but with the kids being home bread making has become a “Wish I had time for event.’

So today “I took the bull by the horns.” I’m ‘Getting r done.” “Nailed it!”

And so on.

The proof is in the pudding. Wait I mean the pictures. *smile*

 

Have a marvelous day friends!

 

 

Til we meet and eat again,

Garlic Pull Apart Bread
Serves: 2 loaves
 

Ingredients
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 cup (8 oz) warm water
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup (8 oz) milk (I used 1%)
  • 2½ teaspoons salt
  • 5½ – 6½ cups (1 lb 9 oz – 2 lbs 3 oz) bread flour
For Topping:
  • 8 tablespoons butter, melted
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley, finely chopped (or 4 teaspoons dried)
  • 2 Tablespoon fresh oregano (or 1 teaspoon dried oregano)
  • 4 cloves garlic, mined
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt

Instructions
  1. Add warm water to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with dough hook. Sprinkle water with sugar and yeast. Let stand 5-10 minutes until foamy. Mix in butter, milk, salt and 3 cups flour. Stir in additional flour gradually. Add enough flour until dough is smooth. Knead for 7-10 minutes. Dough should stick to the bottom of the bowl but clears sides. Divide dough into 2 equal portions.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the butter, parsley, oregano and minced garlic. Cut dough into 1-in. pieces; dip into butter mixture. Layer into 2 – greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Temperature should read 200 degrees. Sprinkle with kosher salt.
Makes 2 loaves.

  1. It’s going to be hard to wait until after work to make this bread! YUM.

  2. Oooooh … Melanie, I’ve just had dinner and yet I’m drooling over this bread! It looks so pretty as well. Marvellous!
    P.S. You’re right about our time somehow ‘disappearing’ rather quickly every day. Now what is that all about? ;-)

  3. Wow! This bread looks fantastic! I always try to sneak garlic into just about everything I cook, so I’m loving this pull apart bread, Melanie! I think I would probably eat the whole loaf myself! Pinned!

  4. Oh my yum! I would have to hide this so I could devour it all by myself. Simply gorgeous!

  5. This looks SO good Melanie! I think I would almost rather have this than pizza. I’d serve this with a bunch of marinara sauce and go. to. town!

    Breads not a carb, right?

  6. Yummmm!! This would be such a fun recipe to make with kids. My little siblings are coming to visit me this weekend. We might have to try it

  7. Oh my goodness, this bread looks phenomenal, Melanie! PERFECT weekend food. And I love that photo of the pulling the bread apart. YUM. Pinned!

  11. This bread looks AMAZING! This is like pull apart perfection!

  12. Oh, this looks amazing! Can’t wait to try it. I think there is something therapeutic about making bread and one that is this delicious should be fun!

  13. I think this would be torn apart in record time at my house. Nice job!

  14. Oh. My. Yum. is correct! Loving this! You are a bread baking genius!

  15. Oh, my, yum is right! I always look at pics of delicious food when I start to get hungry and it can be dangerous. I would love a few pieces of this bread right now. I hope you had a great weekend, Melanie! Pinned!

  16. Wow, love that you did the bread from scratch! It turned out better than the store – so soft and fluffy. The buttery garlic throughout can.not.be.beat. This is absolutely stunning and perfect for any meal! Pinning!

    Amazing! Can’t wait to try this… Thanks for sharing :-)

    • Thanks for dropping by Frances!

      • Hi Melanie,

        Quick question — the recipe makes 2 loaves and calls for 5½ – 6½ cups of bread flour. I want to try making just one loaf the first time around, so what would be the appropriate amount of bread flour? 3 cups?

        Thanks in advance!
        Frances

        • Frances, start with 2 3/4 cups of flour. Go ahead and add up to an additional half of a cup if necessary (adding a tablespoon at a time) to the right consistency.
          Hope it turns out well!

  27. oh my… this bread looks amazing! I must find this ingredient called “time” to make it. Thanks for the amazing recipe!

  28. I want to dig right into this loaf, Melanie! Featuring it Saturday at SNF!! Have a great weekend!

  29. Is it strange that I just had breakfast as I stumbled on this bread on Pinterest and now I’m craving it? No, I don’t think so. In other words: It looks so delicious and full of flavour – I think I know what I’ll bake once the temperature gets down a bit and I can turn the oven on again ;-) ’cause I have time and thyme – I think it might make a nice flavour addition! Thanks for sharing!

  30. Oh.My.Yum! This looks like monkey bread but savory and oh so good with those flavors. Thanks, Melanie!

    I’m not big on baking. Could I use store bought bread like Pillsbury for this recipe.

  32. Hi!! Thank u so much for this recipe. One qn though. Ur last instruction says bake at 350 and then u said the temperature should read 200degrees? What does that mean?

    • Let me clarify. The oven temperature should be 350 degrees. The internal temperature of the bread when fully baked should be 200 degrees. Sorry for any confusion! Thanks for stopping by.

  33. Thank you so much for the recipe!! It was delicious and super easy. Thank u!!

    Hello! This bread looked so yummy so I knew I had to bake it. Pretty easy but I found that after I let it sit for 1 hour, it did not double in size as I had hoped. I baked it anyways and it is a bit doughy tasting. I used warm water at the beginning and let the yeast get frothy so I am not sure where I went wrong. I am almost wondering if the cold milk was wrong and I should have let it warm to room temperature. Any thoughts?
    THANKS!

    • I’m trying to think about what it may not have double especially if the yeast did get frothy. Did you check the temperature of the water? Was it too hot possibly? About 110 degrees is perfect. Anything too hot will kill it. And secondly was your yeast fresh?
      Hope these questions might trigger what went wrong. It really stinks to take the time to make something and it fail. So sorry!

  35. Do you think the recipe would still work if I subbed vegan margarine and almond milk? Thank you!

    • I’ve never tried it Emily but my guess would be yes for the almond milk. As far as the vegan margarine goes I’ve never used it so I couldn’t give a fair opinion. Whatever you decide I hope you enjoy it!

  36. Just made this yesterday. Super yummy and soft. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe!

  37. Elizabeth says:

    looks so yummy. making it now, but I am going to stuff chicken inside the bits of bread and probably add cheese.

  38. Hi can I subsitute the dry active yeast to instant yeast if so how much water and yeast to be adjusted? Thanks!

Moms need recess too!
