    DrGaellon's Note:

    This savory pull-apart loaf is loaded with herby goodness. You can adjust the ratio of white to whole-wheat flour as you like (though you may not get enough gluten if the whole-wheat exceeds a cup and a half). You can bake it in almost any pan; if you have a bundt pan, it makes a really fun shape. Adapted from a recipe by Donna Currie at Serious Eats.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 8



    Units: US | Metric

    Bread dough

    Herb butter


    1. 1
      In work bowl of a stand mixer, combine milk, sugar, all purpose flour and yeast. Mix until combined, then cover with plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature for 1 hour.
    2. 2
      Add whole wheat flour and salt and mix until smooth and elastic. Add 4 tbsp of butter and continue to knead until butter is incorporated and dough is shiny and elastic. Total kneading time is 7-10 minutes.
    3. 3
      Coat a clean bowl with oil. Form dough into a neat ball and turn in the oil to coat. Cover with plastic and let rise at room temperature until double in bulk, about 45-60 minutes.
    4. 4
      Meanwhile, preheat oven to 325°F Combine garlic, rosemary, thyme and paprika in the work bowl of a food processor (if you have a small one, it is ideal for this). Process until garlic is finely chopped, 10-12 one-second pulses. Add remaining 4 tbsp butter and salt and process until well-blended, about 10 seconds. Set aside at room temperature.
    5. 5
      Turn dough out onto a lightly-floured work surface; hand knead for 15-30 seconds. Using a bench scraper, divide dough in half. Repeat 4 more times to form 32 even pieces of dough. Shape dough pieces into balls: place a ball on the work surface, cup the hand loosely with open fingers over the ball and move the hand in a circle so the ball "rolls around" in the cage formed by the fingers. Coat each ball in herb butter (use your fingers) and place into a baking dish, cake pan, loaf pan or bundt pan. Drop balls in loosely; do not compress them. Cover with plastic and let rise until doubled in bulk again, 30-45 minutes.
    6. 6
      Bake until loaf is a deep golden-brown color, about 35 minutes. Serve hot, warm, or at room temperature.
