Garlic Bubble Loaf Recipe
The idea for this recipe came from a friend, who in turn received it from her mom. Finding just the right amount of butter involved some trial and error at first...and the same was true for the garlic powder! We ended up tailoring her original recipe to better suit our tastes.
- 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
- 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
- 2 cups warm milk (110° to 115°)
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon shortening
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 6-1/4 to 6-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, sugar, shortening, salt and 2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough of the remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn out on a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
- Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into fourths. Divide each portion into 12 pieces. In a shallow bowl, combine the butter, parsley and garlic powder. Shape each piece into a ball; dip in the butter mixture. Place in two grease 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan. Pour any remaining butter mixture over dough. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
- Bake at 375° for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks. Serve warm. Yield: 2 loaves.
