Pretzel Bread

And we're back in the kitchen!

I'm not sure when Chris' love for pretzel bread started, but he has always been one to enjoy it whenever it appears on a menu.  His recent addiction to the pretzel bread version of hot pockets lead to our baking venture to create our own.

We used the Fleischmann's sponsored recipe found on All Recipes and pretty much stuck to the directions.

As you can see, Chris did the majority of the prep while I took pictures and assisted with the boiling solution and egg wash.

One of the interesting parts, I found, was boiling the dough for 2 minutes prior to baking the bread.

About 30 minutes worth of baking and we were left with some delicious pretzel bread.

We have actually tried this recipe twice.  The first time Chris followed it to a T and came out with two great loaves.  The second time around, we attempted to double the recipe and honestly the results were not as great as the first time.  We have one package of rapid rise yeast left, so we'll give it one more go...sticking to the measurements as it.

Have you tried any fun recipes lately?


  1. i'm going to have to try this--my husband loves pretzel bread as well!

  2. I don't think I've ever had pretzel bread ... how is it different than regular bread? It looks good though!

    1. I'm not really sure as the only other bread I have made was pumpkin bread during the holidays. I think the main differences might be the salty crust and the amount of flour.

  3. Mmmmm...I love pretzel bread, I'm going to have to try this!

  4. Looks so yummy! I love pretzels and beer. (it's corinne)

  5. Ooooh! I LOOOVE pretzel bread! This is definitely going on my to-do list.
