Say these words after me….
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.
Bam! Before you know you’ll be pulling off pieces of this delicious bread and telling everyone nearby 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.
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 thing.’
So today I “Nailed it!”

Pull Apart Garlic Bread
- 1 cup 8 oz warm water
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
- 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter softened
- 1 cup 8 oz milk (I used 1%)
- 2 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 5 1/2 - 6 1/2 cups 1 lb 9 oz - 2 lbs 3 oz bread flour
- 8 tablespoons butter melted
- 1/4 cup fresh parsley finely chopped (or 4 teaspoons dried)
- 2 Tablespoon fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt
Add warm water to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with dough hook. Sprinkle water with sugar and yeast. Stir and 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. It will be soft and slightly sticky. (Kneading can also be kneaded by hand by will take closer to 10 minutes to a achieve a smooth dough.) Divide dough into 2 equal portions.
In a small bowl, combine the butter, parsley, oregano and minced garlic. Set aside.
Cut dough into 1-in. pieces; dip into butter mixture. Layer the buttery pieces into 2 – greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pans. Cover loaves and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour. Meanwhile preheat oven to 350 degrees 15 minutes prior to the full rise.
Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until golden brown. The temperature of the baked loaves should read 200 degrees. Sprinkle with kosher salt.
