This loaf is the best bubble bread I have ever made, it is a pull apart bread that has become another family favorite. It can also be sliced but pull apart in more fun. When my Uncle Jack wants homemade bread this is the one he wants. This bread goes great with any meal that would be served with a garlic bread. Sometimes we just stand around ripping it apart and eating it by itself while it is still warm! Like a pack of mad hungry dogs!
- 3 -3 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 (1/4 ounce) package active dry yeast (2 1/4 teaspoons)
- 1 1⁄4 cups milk
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1 egg
- 1⁄3 cup butter or 1⁄3 cup margarine, melted
Filling or Topping
- 2 tablespoons of grated parmesan cheese
- 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
- 1⁄2-1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon paprika
- In large bowl combine 1 1/2 cups of flour, sugar, salt, and yeast, stir until blended.
- In a small sauce pan heat milk and oil until very warm, 120°F to 130°F Add warm liquid and egg to flour mixture, stir until moist and beat for 3 minutes on medium speed.
- By hand stir in additional 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups of flour until dough pulls cleanly away from sides of bowl.
- On a floured surface knead in 1/4 to 1/2 cup of flour until dough is smooth and elastic, 2 to 4 minutes.
- Place dough in greased bowl covered loosely with plastic wrap and towel, let rise in warm place (85°F) until doubled in size, 45 to 60 minutes.
- Punch down dough several times to remove all air bubbles.
- Divide dough into 16 equal pieces and shape into balls.
- Dip each ball into the melted butter and place half the balls into an ungreased 12 cup bundt pan forming 1 layer.
- Combine topping ingredients and sprinkle half over the layer of balls.
- Dip and place other half of balls to form a second layer.
- Pour any remaining butter over balls and sprinkle with remaining topping.
- Cover and let rise in a warm place until light and doubled in size (30 to 45 minutes).
- Heat oven to 375°F.
- Uncover dough and bake 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped.
- Cool 5 minutes remove from pan.
- Prep time does not include for rising of dough.
- This bread is best served warm out of the oven, if you wanted you could also sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon or so of dried minced onion along with the topping on the FIRST layer, if there are any bread lovers with you be careful or you will know what I mean by "Pack of mad hungry dogs".
WOW this is fantstic! I did increase the yeast slightly and also the filling/topping ingredients, I did omit the egg though, I don't really use eggs in my yeast recipes, as it takes way to long to rise, and I feel that the bread has a more lighter texture when baked. Just a bit of extra time to make this but well worth the effort, it's delicious, and I will definately make it again! thanks Chippers!...Kitten:)
This was great! The bread was nice and soft; I would probably change the topping though -- didn't really like the flavors on that (maybe pure parmesan and garlic powder)
Great bread! I like recipes like this ... versatile. You could switch up the seasoning to whatever you prefer. I made it as stated , it was delicious! Thanks for posting Chipfo!
