Savory Pull-Apart Bread | Eggless Baking


This bread had been on my baking list for a while and finally i made it. I decided to go for the savory version as the sweet one is made with cinnamon and iam not a great fan of cinnamon. The dough is the basic yeast dough and the fillings can be easily customized. I have tried to explain the recipe with step by step pictures, it seems to be a bigger process but trust me it was very easy and the result was awesome.



Savory Pull-Apart Bread

Ingredients:

For the dough

3 cups bread flour
2 1/4 teaspoons instant yeast
1 cup warm water
3 tablespoons sugar
3/4 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons butter, melted

For the filling

1/4 cup mint leaves, chopped
1/4 cup coriander leaves, chopped
2 tablespoons garlic chives, chopped
2 green chillies, chopped
5 garlic cloves, grated finely
2 tablespoons butter, melted

Make it

Put the yeast, sugar and warm water in a small bowl and stir well. Leave in a warm place for 10 minutes, or until bubbles appear on the surface. The mixture should be frothy.

Sift the flour and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the center and add the yeast mixture. Mix to a soft dough. Turn on to a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 minutes, until smooth. Place the dough in an oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap and leave for 1 hour or until doubled in size.

Punch down the dough and knead for 1 minute. Mix the herbs together along with green chillies and garlic. Roll out the dough into a rectangle (doesn't have to be perfect). Brush the dough with melted butter and sprinkle the filling evenly on the rolled out dough.

Cut the dough into equally thin strips with a pizza cutter (i got 5 strips). Stack the strips on top of each other and cut into equal squares (again i got 5 squares).

Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan and stack the squares upright in the loaf pan, squashing them together. If you loose any of the filling just sprinkle them over the top. Cover with a plastic wrap and leave in a warm place for 30 minutes or until the dough is well risen.

Preheat the oven to 210 degree Celsius. Brush the loaf with the remaining 2 tablespoons butter and bake for 30-40 minutes, or until the bread is brown and crusty. Remove from the oven and allow it to cool on the loaf pan before turning out.





Notes:

Use any combination of herbs that you like.

You can also add some cheese to the filling.

This bread goes well with soups and even can be made into a sandwich with fried eggs.
