  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 1 pack yeast 11g
  • 2 tsp sugar granulated
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup milk 2%
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 and 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 and 1/2 cup cubed cheese, I choose cheddar 200g
  • 2 tsp butter, soften
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 or 2 tbsp parsley, finely chopped to taste


  • In the bowl of your stand-up mixer, pour the water, add the yeast and sugar. Mix well.
  • Let it rest for 10 minutes or until a foam has formed.
  • Using the hook, turn on your stand-up mixer, add the oil, salt and the milk.
  • Add the flour one cup and the time while the mixer is on. (I used it at speed 6)
  • When your dough is no longer sticky, leave the mixer on for another 5 minutes.
  • Stop the mixer and allow to rest for 20 minutes. The dough will almost double in size.
  • Pre-heat the oven at 325F.
  • In the meantime, cut your cheese in cubes, if it was not already done.
  • In a ramekin, put the butter and melt it in the microwave (10 sec will suffice), then add the olive oil, garlic and parsley. Mix well. Set aside
  • Now that your bread has raised, take some dough in your hand and tuck in a cube of cheese. Your ball should not be bigger than a ping pong ball.
  • Repeat until your have not more bread and cheese.
  • Take your ramekin with butter, with a brush, brush your butter/olive oil mix on the bread.
    In a loaf pan, cheesy pull apart bread is being spread with butter, garlic and parsley, under the dish there is a red dish towel
  • Bake in the oven for 25-30 min or until the bread is golden.
