One of my goals this year is to finally learn how to bake bread. It’s always been my arch-nemesis in the kitchen. Enter the bread proofing feature on my Quick Cooker. Holy perfect bread, Batman! I threw this rosemary garlic pull apart bread in no time. As an added bonus, my 6 year old helped me make it. So easy, so fluffy and so full of flavor. I could rattle on about the bread, but personally, I hate reading through a bunch of text to get to the recipe, so I’ll post that first and then follow with some pictures.
Vegan Rosemary Garlic Pull Apart Bread
Fluffy and delicious rosemary garlic bread that is dairy free!
- 4 1/2 cups bread flour I used white bread flour
- 1 packet yeast
- 2 tsp kosher salt
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 tbsp good quality olive oil
- 2 tbsp rosemary & garlic bread dipping seasoning season to your taste
- 1 1/4 c warm water
Preheat oven to 400 F.
Mix dry ingredients in your mixing bowl. Pour in olive oil and warm water. Using the dough hook, mix ingredients on low speed until well combined.
Continue to mix on low speed to knead dough for 10 minutes.
Brush the ceramic insert with olive oil. Place dough in the insert. Place in the inner pot of your Quick Cooker (follow Quick Cooker guide for how to proof bread and for set up). Proof bread through 1 cycle.
Remove ceramic pot, turn dough out on lightly floured surface. Mix dough by hand and punch dough down. Place back in the ceramic insert. Proof for a second cycle in the Quick Cooker.
Roll dough out onto a floured surface. Drizzle with olive oil and seasoning mix. Rub the seasoning mix into the dough. Roll the dough into a long sausage link. Break dough into 8 pieces.
Place strips into ceramic pot, weaving them together to make it all fit in the pot. Drizzle with olive oil on top and sprinkle a little of the seasoning mix on top. Bake at 400 F for 35-40 minutes. Let cool in the ceramic pot for 10 minutes. Turn out onto serving plate. Let your guests tear off pieces to enjoy as an appetizer or with your meal.
This bread is everything I was looking for in bread. Light, fluffy, flavorful….it really is scrumptious. Even better, it was given universal thumbs up from everyone in the family. And, with a proofing feature on my Quick Cooker, the process of baking bread was quick and easy (I have spent an entire day letting dough rise before only to be disappointed that it didn’t really rise).
