Garlic Bubble Loaf Recipe

Publisher Photo
Complete your next spaghetti dinner with this eye-catching loaf. Family and friends will have fun pulling off each rich and buttery piece. The idea for this recipe came from a friend, who 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! I ended up tailoring her original recipe to better suit my family's tastes. —Lynn Nichols, Bartlett, Nebraska

"I just made this last night and everyone loved it. Next time I would change out the garlic powder for garlic salt. And, I didn't have any butter left to top the loaves, so I would heat up a little more and spread over the top. Also served with marina sauce for an appetizer."

"VERY TASTY - BUT I' have made this 3 times thus far & it hasn't come out slicable yet. Each one of the "balls" comes off the loaf like "monkey bread"- granted, baking is not my forte - so what am I doing wrong??"

"This was a great bread recipe although it does take a lot of time to assemble. I did find that 24 balls per loaf was a bit too much. I would make the same size balls (24 per loaf) but use 18 in each loaf pan and the 12 left over in a smaller loaf pan. Wonderful flavor and my guests raved about it asking for the recipe. I froze one loaf to enjoy later. Oh, I did not have garlic powder so put 3 cloves of garlic through a a press and used that along with fresh parsley which I chopped up fine."
