Ingredients to make Garlic and Herbs Pull Apart Bread

  • 3 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons instant dry yeast
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons mixed herbs of choice or Italian dry herbs
  • 8 – 10 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup warm water plus more if needed
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 8-10 tablespoons grated cheddar cheese

Steps to make Garlic and Herbs Pull Apart Bread

  1. Dissolve sugar in warm water and add yeast. Cover and let rest for 5 minutes. Add milk and olive oil to this mixture.
  2. Whisk together first three ingredients, 1 teaspoon herb mix and half of the minced garlic.
  3. Knead dough by adding liquid ingredients. Knead for about 6-8 minutes till dough becomes soft and elastic. Add more water if needed. Dough should be really soft but not sticky.
  4. Shape into a ball and transfer it into a greased bowl. Turn around so that it is evenly coated with oil. Cover and keep in a warm place for 1 hour or until double.
  5. Punch dough and transfer it to a floured counter. Roll out into a rectangle of about 12 x 20 inches. Generously brush with 3 tablespoons of butter, sprinkle cheese, remaining herbs and garlic.
  6. Cut into six equal strips, layering one on top of the other. Cut the strips into six equal stacks. Transfer the stacks into a generously greased 8 ½ x 4 ½ inch loaf pan.
  7. Cover loosely with a kitchen towel and keep in a warm place to rise for 1 hour or until double.
  8. Drizzle with the remaining butter and bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Tent with a foil if the top is browning too fast. Remove from oven after 10 minutes. Cool in the rack. Serve warm.
My Tip: When cutting the strips, ensure they fit into your bread pan. Otherwise cut according to the size of your pan.
