Garlic and Herb Pull-Apart Bread


  • 1 pound (450g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons (1 packet) active dry yeast
  • 1 cup (240ml) warm milk
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) warm water
  • 1/4 cup (50g) granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons (42g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1/2 cup (60g) grated Parmesan cheese
  • Olive oil, for brushing


In a large mixing bowl, combine the warm milk and warm water. Sprinkle the active dry yeast over the liquid and let it sit for about 5 minutes until foamy.

Add the flour, granulated sugar, melted butter, and salt to the yeast mixture. Mix until the dough comes together.

Transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead for about 5-7 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.

Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for 1 to 1.5 hours or until doubled in size.

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9×5-inch (23x13cm) loaf pan.

Punch down the risen dough and transfer it to a floured surface. Roll the dough into a rectangle.

In a small bowl, mix together minced garlic, chopped parsley, thyme, rosemary, and grated Parmesan cheese.

Brush the rolled-out dough with olive oil and sprinkle the garlic-herb mixture evenly over the surface.

Cut the dough into 6 strips lengthwise, then stack the strips on top of each other.

Cut the stack of strips into 6 equal squares.

Carefully place the squares into the greased loaf pan, arranging them vertically so the layers are visible.

Cover the pan with a damp cloth and let it rise for another 20-30 minutes.

Bake the bread in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown on top.

Allow the bread to cool slightly before serving. Enjoy the delight of tearing and sharing this flavorful Garlic and Herb Pull-Apart Bread!
