Garlic Bubble Loaf

Garlic Bubble Loaf
An easy one-rise garlic bread shaped into a buttery pull-apart bread.
Yield 1 loaf




  • 2 1/2 to 3 cups bread flour, divided
  • 1 (0.25oz) package (7g) or 2 1/4 teaspoons Red Star Active Dry Yeast
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon table salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 large egg


  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine (melted)
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon garlic powder (to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds (optional)


  • In stand mixer bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups bread flour, yeast, sugar and salt; mix well using paddle attachment.
  • In saucepan or microwave-safe dish, heat milk, water and butter until warm (120°-130°F; butter does not need to melt). Add to flour mixture. Add egg. Blend at low speed until moistened; beat 3 minutes at medium speed.
  • Switch to dough hook attachment. Gradually stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead until smooth and elastic, about 2 minutes.
    (NOTE: For hand mixing: following above steps, mix ingredients in large mixing bowl using a wooden spoon or dough whisk. Knead on floured surface until smooth and elastic.)
  • Divide dough in half. Divide each half into 6 pieces. Shape each piece into a smooth ball.
  • Make coating: Combine melted butter, paprika and garlic powder; mix well.
  • Dip balls into butter mixture; place in a greased 9×5-inch bread pan, placing 6 balls on each layer. Sprinkle tops with sesame seeds. Cover; let rise in warm place until indentation remains after lightly touching.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Bake for 40 to 45 minutes until golden brown. Remove from pan; serve warm.
