Pull-apart bread is a type of bread with specific indentations in the loaves that allow the bread to be easily pulled apart (hence the name). You should be able to make pull-apart bread using ingredients that you already have at home.
In this video, Big Family Homestead explains how you can make your own pull-apart bread. Here’s the recipe…

- 2 teaspoons of salt
- ½ cup of milk
- 1 ½ cup of water
- 8 teaspoons of butter
- 3 tablespoons of sugar
- 5 cups of bread flour
- Large mixing bowl
- 1 tablespoon of yeast
- Loaf pan
- Take your large mixing bowl and mix together two cups of flour with the yeast, sugar, and salt.
- Next, combine the milk, water, and three tablespoons of butter in a saucepan.
- Heat everything over low heat until the liquids are warm (however, the butter does not need to be melted yet).
- Add the dry mixture and the wet mixture together and continue to stir over the heat.
- Mix in a three-fourths cup of flour for two minutes; add more flour as you see fit to thicken the mixture.
- Kneed in a mixture for at least five minutes.
- Place the mixture into the bowl.
- Cover the mixture and allow it to rise at normal room temperature into a dough.
- Sprinkle flour over a flat surface.
- Remove the dough from the bowl and place it on the counter.
- Roll out the dough into a rectangle and brush with the remaining butter.
- Cut the dough into two halves.
- Cut into four equal strips.
- Stack the strips and cut into four equal pieces.
- Place the strips on edge in a greased loaf pan, permitting the layers to form rows down the length of the pan.
- Allow the dough to rise until it has doubled in size.
- Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for a half hour.
- Remove from the oven.
And that’s it! If the bread sounds hollow when you tap it, it’s done. Otherwise, place it back into the oven for a few more minutes.
