“This loaf is the best bubble bread I have ever made, it is a pull apart bread that has become another family favorite. It can also be sliced but pull apart in more fun. When my Uncle Jack wants homemade bread this is the one he wants. This bread goes great with any meal that would be served with a garlic bread. Sometimes we just stand around ripping it apart and eating it by itself while it is still warm! Like a pack of mad hungry dogs!”

  6. Punch down dough several times to remove all air bubbles.

  15. Cool 5 minutes remove from pan.

  17. This bread is best served warm out of the oven, if you wanted you could also sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon or so of dried minced onion along with the topping on the FIRST layer, if there are any bread lovers with you be careful or you will know what I mean by "Pack of mad hungry dogs".
