Cold weather is continuously blasting our area and to keep warm, all I can think off is a bowl of hot soup and warm home-baked bread. Nothing beats the idea of baking fresh bread on a cold wintry day.
And today, I am excited to share these Easy One Hour Pull-Apart Garlic Rolls which comes together in just 1 hour – from start to finish!!
This recipe is adapted from my other bread recipes. Had made these Easy One Hour Pull-Apart Garlic Rolls over the holidays for our potluck dinner and was a HIT.
HOW TO MAKE A DOUGH RISE IN COLD WEATHER?
Rising the dough in winters can be challenging for some. Homes are cold, and it could be challenging to find a warm spot to make the dough rise. What works best for me – is a warm oven.
Warm the oven @200 degree F for 10 minutes, turn it off and place the dough in the warm oven to rise. It works beautifully.
Another warm place would be the top portion of your refrigerator!
Surprised, right!While growing up, my mom used to place her dough for rising on top of the fridge, and the dough would rise amazingly!
As compared to rest of the body of a refrigerator, the top is considerable warm, making it an ideal spot for dough rising.
Give it a try, and you will be amazed.
Ingredients required to make this Easy One Hour Pull-Apart Garlic Rolls!
- All-purpose flour: required for structure and texture.
- Baking powder: a leavening agent that makes the bread light and airy.
- Vegan Butter: for a rich and buttery taste.
- Sugar: required for yeast to activate
- Active dry yeast: an essential ingredient necessary to make the dough rise.
- Warm Water: to knead the dough
- Garlic herb butter made with aromatic spices and vegan butter.
How to make Easy One Hour Pull-Apart Garlic Rolls?
1. Just like any other regular bread recipe – activate the yeast.
2. Once the yeast is frothy and bubbly, combine with the dough.
3. Allow the dough to rise for 20 minutes. Depending on the weather, dough may take longer to rise. After 20 minutes, the dough will double in size. If it doesn’t, allow it to sit for another 20 minutes.
4. Later divide the dough evenly into balls.
5. Now here is a twist – I didn’t want to make these pull-apart rolls the traditional way, therefore, shaped them like a twisted loop. Follow a step by step instructions below 👇 on how to make a twisted loop.
6. Shape all the balls like a loop. Arrange the rolls in a greased bundt pan. Pour garlic herb butter on top.
7. Brush the layered dough with butter and bake as directed.
Minutes later, your house will smell like a bakery. Tastes best when fresh out of the oven. These rolls are feather-light and airy and a great addition to any meal. I like to eat them by dunking them into my bowl of hot soup. Super yum!!
You are going to love these Easy One Hour Pull-Apart Garlic Rolls, because they:
- Can be made ahead of time,
- Are super soft, fluffy and taste d-licious,
- Crowd-pleasing appetizer for game day or potluck dinners.
- Can be doubled to accommodate a big crowd.
- Make a big batch and see them disappear.
- The dough freezes well. To freeze: shape the dough and place the pan in the freezer. When ready to bake, defrost on the counter and bake as directed. So easy!
- Store-bought biscuit rolls can be used for the dough to speed up the process. Remove the dough from the pack, shape like round balls and use as directed – bake as per package instructions.
- Instead of dried herbs, fresh chopped herbs can be used.
- Since these are vegan rolls, I have not used the cheese. The non-vegan option would be: to generously top the rolls with cheese and bake as directed.
- You can make this bread as a monkey bread too. For that: after applying garlic herb butter, roll the dough like a ball and toss into the grease bundt pan. Keep repeating until you are done with all the dough. Finish the top layer with extra garlic herb butter and bake as directed.
- You can use Instant yeast. 1 teaspoon active dry yeast = 3/4 teaspoon instant yeast. Therefore, you will require 3 teaspoons of instant yeast for this recipe.
- These rolls can be enjoyed plain as is. Or serve with a dip or along with a bowl of hot soup.

Easy Pull-Apart Garlic Rolls
FOR THE DOUGH
KNEADING THE DOUGH
- Measure all the ingredients.
- Dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water and let stand for five minutes, or until foamy.
- Once the yeast activates (foamy and bubbly), go ahead with the recipe. If the yeast fails to do so, please discard and start over.
- In a bowl or a bowl of stand mixer, combine flour, butter, salt and baking powder.
- Pour in the activated yeast.
- Mix and form a soft dough.
- Cover and let the dough rest in a warm place/oven for 20 minutes. Dough will double in size. If it doesn’t, allow it to sit for another 20 minutes.
- While the dough is resting, let’s prepare garlic butter. Assemble ingredients listed under garlic butter. Garlic salt can be substituted with fresh chopped garlic and salt.
- With a fork, press down on the soften butter until its smooth. Add garlic salt and herbs. Mix until well blended. Set it aside.
- Remove the dough from oven and gently punch the dough down.
SHAPING THE DOUGH
- Divide the dough into several equal sized balls and shape them. The above measurements make 18 balls. I have not measured on a scale just eyeballed it.
- Preheat the oven @350 degree F. Meanwhile, flatten the dough.
- Apply a single layer of garlic spread to the flatten dough.
- Start rolling the dough….
- Until it looks like a log.
- Fold the dough in such a way that the two ends meet each other.
- It will form a big ‘O’. Pinch the ends together.
- Flip the folded roll over and it will look exactly like the one as shown in the pic below.
- Grease a baking pan and arrange the dough on top of each other. Make sure to butter the bottom layer before placing the other layer on top.
- Butter the top layer as well and generously top with some dried parsley or cilantro.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the tops are golden brown. Brush the hot rolls with melted butter and serve.
- Served with a dip or with a hot bowl of soup and see these rolls disappear!
