Attention: A good yeast is a prerequisite for a great Cheesy Garlic Bread
Use a good quality yeast. Most of the magic is done by the yeast. If the yeast is not good, it is going to get foamy enough to rise the flour when you proof it. Your garlic bread will end up soggy and stale smelling of yeast. But if get it right, the end result will be a soft, buttery, fragrant, spongy garlic bread.
About this Pull-Apart Cheesy Garlic Bread
I made the yeast and added it to the sifted flour along with some butter and salt. Then I kneaded it into a dough and kept it aside to prove. The dough doubled in size. I knocked it back, kneaded again, and cut it into 10 equal sized balls.
I made a mixture of melted butter, cheese and finely chopped garlic. The dough balls were dipped in the butter mixture and placed in baking dish. I waited for it to rise and double in size and baked in preheated oven for 20 mins on 225 degrees Celsius.
That’s all it takes to bake the best Pull-Apart Cheesy Garlic Bread at home!!
