Garlic Parmesan Pull-Apart Bread

I made this yesterday for a get-together and it was really good. My loaf rose beautifully, but when I took it out of the mold, it no longer had the shape of the small pull-apart balls, it melded together in a giant loaf, which was not bad either.

  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 1/3 cups barely warm water
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 1/2 cups all purpose (or bread) flour
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Directions :
  1. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the yeast and water.
  2. Let sit 5 minutes until yeast is foamy. Mix in the olive oil, salt, and flour.
  3. If you have a stand mixer, attach the dough hook and knead the dough for 5-6 minutes, or until elastic.
  4. If you are doing this by hand, knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until dough is elastic, 7-10 minutes. Transfer dough to a lightly oiled bowl and cover with a clean kitchen towel.
  5. Allow to rise for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until dough is doubled in size.
  6. In a small bowl, combine melted butter, parsley flakes, and minced garlic. Set aside.
  7. Punch down the dough. Tear off small pieces of dough (roughly the size of the bowl of a medium spoon), coat in the butter mixture, and place in the bottom of a bundt pan.
  8. Repeat this process until you have one layer of dough balls. Sprinkle on 1/3 of the Parmesan cheese. Continue layering the dough balls and cheese until you have 3 layers. Cover the pan with a clean towel and allow to sit until dough has doubled in size, 20-30 minutes.
  9. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  10. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until bread is golden brown.
  11. Serve hot with a side of marinara or tomato sauce.
