We are off to a BBQ with family tonight. I have my Cheesy Herb Pull Apart ready to bake once there, lemon chermoula marinated chicken and a violet crumble cheesecake to take along thanks to the tmx.
This is a great twist on the Herb and Garlic Pull Apart. 


Cheesy Herb Pull Apart
Serves 6
Great for a BBQ or side to soup.
Cook Time
40 min
Cook Time
40 min
  1. 450g lukewarm water
  2. 750g bakers flour
  3. 3 teaspoons yeast
  4. 1 teaspoon of salt
  5. 3 teaspoons of bread improver, optional
  1. 200g cubed cheese of choice
  2. 2 cloves of garlic, peeled
  3. 2 spring onions, roughly chopped
  4. A few sprigs each of basil and parsley
  5. Salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Add the ingredients in this order: water, yeast, flour, salt.
  2. Blitz on speed 7 for 10 seconds to roughly combine.
  3. Lock lid and use the kneading function for 6 mins.
  4. Remove dough and place into a lightly oiled bowl. Cover with cling film and place into a warm spot. I use the front seat of my car or a warmed oven.
  5. Leave this to rise for approximately an hour or until doubled.
  6. Place all filling ingredients into the bowl. Blitz on speed 6 for 5-7 secs. Don't be worried if there are still larger chunks of cheese as it cooks down. Blitz finer if preferred however.
  7. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Lightly grease a spring form tin.
  8. Roll the risen dough out into a large rectangle approximately 1cm thickness.
  9. Top with cheese and herb mix. Don't be shy to use your hands. It's a great way to get a nice even layer.
  10. Cut into about 6-6 strips.
  11. Concertina the strips in your well oiled baking dish and leave to rise for 15-30 minutes just for it to grow a little bigger.
  12. Bake at 180 degrees for approximately 40-45 minutes. You may need a little longer.
