Pretzel Bread
February 08, 2014

Made this for hubby - he's not a bread fan but does love his pretzel bread!! For those who have issues with the rising: 1) Make sure the yeast is quick rise 2) Make SURE the warm solution is NOT too hot. It will kill the yeast. 3) If you're still having trouble (I have issues with quick rising) try this. Follow the directions up to and including turning the dough into the greased bowl. Cover with a damp cloth. Refrigerate overnight. Then follow the other directions. I do this for ALL my breads, as I can't get a consistent rise the other way - this method was in an old recipe for french bread, and gives me a consistent rise every time. I never rise my dough at room temp, but always use the overnight method or I end up making bricks.
