Servings: 8 people


For the dough:

  • teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ¾ cup warm water
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

For the coating:

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • teaspoon salt


  • Add warm water to a large mixing bowl. Sprinkle yeast and sugar over the top. Let the yeast mixture activate for 10 minutes. Add in the flour, salt, and olive oil. Mix together until dough forms. Turn dough out onto clean, floured surface. Knead with your hands until soft, smooth dough forms, at least 6 minutes. Add more flour if dough sticks to the surface. Once dough is smooth and elastic, place into a greased bowl to rise for 1 ½ hours or until it has doubled in size.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare Bundt pan by spraying with nonstick spray. Prepare bread coating by meting butter and adding in herbs, garlic, Parmesan cheese and salt. Mix together. Set aside.
  • Once dough has risen, punch it down and remove from bowl. Place onto clean counter and cut into 4 even wedges. Cut each wedge into 8 pieces. Roll each piece of dough into a ball and them dip into herb butter. Place coated balls into prepared Bundt pan, making sure to create even layers of dough balls. Let loaf sit to rise for 30 minutes.
  • Bake loaf in preheated oven until the top begins to turn golden brown, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes. Turn over onto large. Serve with your favorite marinara sauce.
