I am not a good baker, but once in while, when I chance upon great baking recipes, I would bookmark them and attempt the recipes at home.
So, when I saw this amazing pull apart garlic bread on Pinterest (please follow me) a few weeks ago, I immediately saved it to one of my boards.
I love garlic bread, especially those warm-off-the-oven, garlicky, buttery, aromatic pull apart garlic bread that I can just easily tear off and munch away.
While I like the regular loaf of garlic bread, sometimes it’s kind of a hassle as I need to slice the garlic bread before eating.
So the pull apart garlic bread works just great for me, as I can just tear it off and eat the bread whenever I like.
I gathered the ingredients and spent some time in the kitchen baking this wonderful pull apart garlic bread. The recipe is adapted from Carmel Moments but I reduced the ingredients into half.
I wanted to make sure that I don’t waste the ingredients in case I fail. The recipe is rather easy and straight forward to follow and fool proof.
A couple of hours in the kitchen and I had the beautiful bread in the kitchen!

Pull Apart Garlic Bread - homemade pull apart garlic bread recipe that is easy, fool proof and yields the softest and best garlic bread ever.
- 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
- 1/2 cup warm water
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 cups bread flour
- 4 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 pinch salt
- some finely chopped fresh parsley leaves
- 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
Add warm water to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with dough hook. Sprinkle water with sugar and yeast. Let stand 5-10 minutes until foamy. Mix in butter, milk, salt and stir in the flour gradually. Knead for 7-10 minutes. Dough should stick to the bottom of the bowl but clears sides. Divide dough into 2 equal portions.
In a small bowl, combine the butter, salt, parsley leaves, and garlic. Cut dough into small round pieces and dip into the butter mixture. Arrange the dough balls to your desired shape (I did 2x4). Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour. Reserve the leftover butter mixture.
Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Baste the butter mixture on the pull-apart garlic bread after they are out of the oven.
