Pull Apart Bread Recipe

Has nature got all the answers already but we can’t see the wood from the tree? Let’s make some pull apart garlic bread and see!

As I lately have a little time, I was surfing on the web a few days ago. Trying to get fresh, interesting ideas, inspirational dishes that I’ve never used before, to impress my family with. Hunting for a long time unfortunately could not come across any interesting things. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I stumbled on this delightful and simple treat by accident over Suncakemom. The dessert seemed so yummy on its photos, that required urgent action.

It absolutely was easy to imagine the way it is created, its taste and how much my husband will enjoy it. Mind you, it is quite simple to delight him in terms of cakes. Yes, I am a lucky one. Or maybe he is.Anyway, I went to the website and then used the simple instuctions which were accompanied by superb pics of the process. It really makes life much simpler. I could imagine that it is a slight inconvenience to shoot pics down the middle of baking in the kitchen as you most often have sticky hands so I seriously appreciate the hard work she devote for making this post .

With that said I am empowered presenting my own, personal dishes in a similar way. Many thanks the thought.

I was fine tuning the initial recipe to make it for the taste of my loved ones. I must tell you it turned out a great success. They loved the flavour, the thickness and enjoyed having a delicacy such as this in the midst of a hectic workweek. They basically asked for more, more and more. Hence the next occasion I am not going to commit the same miscalculation. I am gonna twin the volume .

Many Thanks to suncakemom for the finger-licking Pull Apart Bread Cheese.



Knead together flour, sliced butter, egg, milk and crumbled yeast.

Cover the bowl and leave it in a 68°F – 81°F /20°C – 27°C place for about 30 – 90 minutes to double or at least rise.


Cream butter with finely chopped or crushed garlic and parsley.


On a floured work surface roll the dough into a 12 inch / 30cm square. Flouring underneath the dough is important as this coating will prevent it to stick down.

Spread the garlic butter and cheese on top of the dough.

Fold it in half.

Cut the dough up into about 2″ / 5cm size squares.

Fold the corners of the squares into the middle then carefully form balls out of them. We can leave them into squares too, but make sure the sides are sealed off.

Place the balls into a baking form and make sure garlic butter is applied between each layer.

Cover them with a kitchen cloth then leave them in a 68°F – 81°F /20°C – 27°C place for 30 – 45 minutes to rise.

Pop them into the preheated 365°F / 180°C oven for half an hour. In some cases it can be done sooner, in other ovens it would take 40 minutes to be ready. So it is worth to check after 25 minutes.
