I am not a good baker, but once in while, when I chance upon great baking recipes, I would bookmark them and attempt the recipes at home. So, when I saw this amazing pull apart garlic bread on Pinterest (please follow me) a few weeks ago, I immediately saved it to one of my boards.
I love garlic bread, especially those warm-off-the-oven, garlicky, buttery, aromatic pull apart garlic bread that I can just easily tear off and munch away. While I like the regular loaf of garlic bread, sometimes it’s kind of a hassle as I need to slice the garlic bread before eating. So the pull apart garlic bread works just great for me, as I can just tear it off and eat the bread whenever I like.
Pull Apart Garlic Bread Recipe
- 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
- 1/2 cup warm water
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 heaping teaspoon salt
- 3 cups bread flour
- 4 tablespoons butter, melted
- Pinch of salt
- Some finely choppped fresh parsley leaves
- 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
- 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 stir in the flour gradually. Knead for 7-10 minutes. Dough should stick to the bottom of the bowl but clears sides. Divide dough into 2 equal portions.
- In a small bowl, combine the butter, salt, parsley leaves, and garlic. Cut dough into small round pieces and dip into the butter mixture. Arrange the dough balls to your desired shape (I did 2×4). Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour. Reserve the leftover butter mixture.
