September 26, 2023

This tantalising pull-apart bread is the perfect #crowdpleaser for BBQ's and festive gatherings. Best served warm, wrap in foil after baking and place on the warming plate on your BBQ prior to serving to ensure it is toasty-warm. Serve with a dollop of your fave #Nuttelex.


The Bread Base

80 g plant-based Nuttelex, melted

4 cups plain flour

2 tsp salt

1 7g sachet dried yeast

1 tsp caster sugar

1 egg or egg replacer

1 1/2 cups warm water

The Toppings

100 g plant-based Nuttelex melted

2 garlic cloves, crushed

2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds

2 tbsp poppy seeds

2 tbsp dukkah

20 g parmesan, finely grated

20 g flaked toasted almonds

2 tbsp chilli paste

2 tbsp chives, finely chopped

2 tbsp flat leaf parsley, finely chopped


stand mixer with bread hook

wire cooling rack

8 small bowl for dipping

bundt ring pan approx 25 cm


1Combine sifted flour, salt, yeast, and sugar in a stand mixer. Add the egg, water, & melted and cooled Nuttelex and stir well to combine everything.

2Use the dough hook & knead for 10 minutes otherwise turnout onto a lightly floured surface and knead by hand for 10 minutes until dough is smooth and elastic. Place in a bowl greased with Nuttelex and then cover with a tea towel and set aside for at least 1 hour or until dough doubles in size.

3Preheat the oven to 160C fan forced or 180C conventional. Grease a 25cm ring pan with a little melted Nuttelex and lightly dust with flour before gently tapping the pan on the edge of the kitchen sink to release excess flour from pan.

4Remove tea towel from proofing dough and punch the dough down, then turn onto a floured bench and knead until smooth. Then divide the dough into quarters. Then divide each quarter into 16 small portions, and roll into balls.

5In a small bowl, mix the remaining melted Nuttelex with the crushed garlic and put it aside.

6Next, place the toasted sesame seeds, poppy seeds, dukkah, parmesan, almonds and chilli paste separately into their own small bowl. The chives and parsley can be combined together in their own bowl.

7Dip each dough ball into the Nuttelex & garlic mixture then roll through just one of the other bowls. Once all the balls are dipped and covered, place one-at-a-time (alternating the flavours) in the bundt pan. Then set aside for 15 minutes to rise.

8Bake for 30-40 mins or until golden brown and cooked through. Allow to cool in the pan for five minutes before turning out onto a wire rack. Serve it warm or at room temperature with lashings of Nuttelex!
