This recipe has become a favourite in our home and something I just love making. It has never flopped and always come out perfect.

Pull Apart Bread Recipe
- 4 cups of floour
- 2 teaspoons of salt
- 1 egg
- ¼ cup of butter
- 375ml milk
- 10g instant yeast
- Add the milk, egg and yeast in a jug and mix well.
- Add the flour, salt, butter and milk mixture to a bowl and mix with a spoon until just combined and it forms a dough
- Turn out the dough onto a floured surface and knead for about two minutes until silky smooth
- Put the dough back in the bowl and cover with clingwrap – leave it to double in size
- Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and form into 16 balls
- Place the dough balls onto a greased baking pan spaced a little bit apart so they are not touching
- Paint the dough with milk and sprinkle with sesame seeds or grated cheese
- Cover with a tea towel and leave to rise again
- Bake at 180ºC for 12 – 15 minutes
I always start making my dough first thing in the morning to give it plenty of time to rise – recipes often say the dough will double in size in about an hour but I find that my dough doubles in about three hours the first time and then the second time when it is on the baking tray it takes about an hour. The weather often also plays a part in how long it takes for the dough to rise.
