Pull Apart Bread

Herb & Garlic Pull Apart Bread with My Thermomix.

Yes, my Thermomix is getting a good work out of late. A few days ago I made herb and garlic pull apart bread.  I couldn’t believe how simple and easy it was!

I have never really been a “baker” and in fact there are certain family members (who shall remain nameless) who are always astonished when I say that I have cooked something remotely resembling an actual meal.

Now, I’m not too sure where that comes from but the rest of my family and friends I might add too, think I’m a pretty good cook!

The most common exclamation used by this particular family is “YOU CAN COOK?!” often said in unison with other members of the same family, to which my husband (Rupert – as he would like to be referred to as here with the Trekking Banana) replies “Well, of course she can cook! What do you think we eat?!”  All in jest of course.

Anyway, a few days ago I attended a Thermomix cooking class to get some more tips on how best to use this fantastic appliance that I’ve had for many years and to learn some new recipes.

If you have never seen a Thermomix in action, you’ve been missing out!  This appliance has changed the way our family eat and the way we entertain.

Back to Thermomixing with Aggie

  1. I began with blending up my herbs and garlic
  2. Then making the butter with 600mls of whipping cream.  Yes I actually made my own butter!  It only took a matter of minutes.  Separated the butter from the cream.  I have to say I have never seen butter so smooth and soft. The texture was absolutely amazingly soft.
  3. I then mixing my herbs together with my butter and voilà! Herb and garlic butter!
  4. With my bread I just followed the bread recipe in the cookbook. Allowed it to sit for a good 20-30 mins to rise.
  5. Then used the rolling pin and spread my freshly made herb and garlic butter.
  6. Cutting them into strip and using the concertina method of bringing the strips together before placing each on its side to create a rose like formation in the baking tin (see photo)

Herb and Garlic Pull Apart Bread

If you would like the recipe feel free to contact me or comment below.  I will be more than happy to share that with you.

My family were pleasantly surprise as I was. Surprise being the keyword here.

I have always been a good cook but not necessarily the creative sort.  I guess that’s because I always thought being creative meant that you need a lot of time, which is what I don’t have.

Aggie’s Tip

  • I think the only tip I would give in terms of the recipe would be to add a little more salt to the dough and the butter
  • and to let the dough to rise a little more.

Otherwise it was perfect, soft and fluffy on the inside and lightly crispy on the outside.

What would you like to see me cook next with my Thermomix?
