Pull Apart Bread Tutorial

I love bread! Any kind, any way! One of my favorites is a pull apart bread. This bread is genius!! As if the inventor had a house full of kids. With this style bread everyone just digs in and grabs a piece and everyone gets the same size. With three kids, this is a must!! Happy baking!!

Ingredients

  1. 6 to 7 cups all purpose flour
  2. 3 tbsp sugar
  3. 2 tbsp garlic salt
  4. 2 packages active dried yeast
  5. 1.5 cups of water
  6. 1/2 cup of milk
  7. 1 stick of butter
  8. 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  9. 1 tbsp paprika
  10. 1 tbsp garlic powder
  11. 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary
  12. 1 tbsp onion powder
  13. 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage
  14. 1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon

Directions

  1. Place 5 cups of flour, the sugar, 1 tbsp garlic salt and yeast in bowl of electric stand mixer. Turn to low with dough hook and mix for 15 seconds. Combine water, milk and 1/4 butter in saucepan. Heat over low til liquids are warm, (120-130 degrees).
  2. Gradually add warm liquids to flour mixture, about 30 seconds. Mix 1 minute longer. Continuing on low, add remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until dough clings to hook and cleans sides of bowl. Knead on low for 2 minutes longer.
  3. Place dough in greased bowl, cover, let rise in warm place free of draft, (I put it in off oven) until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
Punch dough down…
divide in half.
Grease two round pans and cut dough into about 12 equal parts.
Melt butter and dip each piece in butter…
dip into spice mix.
 Place in a circle around the pan. Repeat with second pan and dough. Cover; and let rise in warm place without draft until double in bulk. Bake at 400 for 30-35 min. Remove from pan immediately and let cool on wire rack.
