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
Pull Apart Garlic Bread - homemade pull apart garlic bread recipe that is easy, fool proof and yields the softest and best garlic bread ever.
- 1/2 cup warm water
- 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
- 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 sugar and yeast into the water. 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 into two mini loaf pan or one regular loaf pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour. Reserve the leftover butter mixture.
Bake at 350°F (176°C) for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Baste the butter mixture on the pull-apart garlic bread after they are out of the oven.
How should I store it after baking? In fridge or just in a bag on the counter.
Just in a bag and in the refrigerator if you want to keep for days.
My family LOVED this!! I want to make it again. How far in advance can the dough be made? How long can it be in the refrigerator before being baked? Thank you!!
I never freeze dough in the refrigerator but you can, just thaw and use the dough when ready.
Can I use self rising flour instead
Can i use heavy whipping cream instead of milk?
Please follow the recipe.
Would this freeze well before baked?
Can I use all purpose flour?
Excellent recipe! I also added 1 Tblsp. Dry milk in the dough and some paprika powder in the butter mixture.
What if I don’t have a stand mixer?
You just knead with hands.
Can I use soy milk instead of cow milk? For a vegan version
I am not sure.
Can I make ahead and bake later
I used oat milk. It worked great.
