DECEMBER RECIPE OF THE MONTH
December is a month full of baking and offering friends and family your homemade goods. If you are looking for a new recipe to try out and share with your loved ones our delicious pretzel bread rolls are the way to go.
"I use a baking soda-water solution to give this bread a nice dark brown color, a characteristic
of most pretzels. Using a spray bottle helps to coat the dough well without having
to go through the messy, time-consuming process of boiling the dough in the solution
prior to baking. The dough has a sweet flavor that is offset by the salty exterior. As the
names suggests, I roll the dough into rolls as opposed to a pretzel shape, making this
bread very quick and easy to make."
Pretzel Bread Rolls
makes about 35 rolls
- 6 tsp. active dry yeast
- 2¼ c. warm water
- ¾ c. plus 1 tsp. granulated sugar
- 7 c. all-purpose flour
- 2¼ tsp. kosher salt, plus
- more for sprinkling
- 2 Tbsp. canola oil
- ¼ c. baking soda
- 2 c. warm water
In a mixer fitted with a dough hook attachment, briefly blend the yeast, warm water, and 1 teaspoon of the sugar. Let rest about 10 minutes so it can “bloom” to activate the yeast.
After yeast has activated, add the flour, remaining ¾ cup sugar, salt, and oil. Mix for 5 minutes or until a smooth, dense dough has formed.
Remove the dough from the mixer and transfer to a greased medium sized bowl. Let the dough rise in a warm place for 2 hours or until doubled in size.
Line a baking sheet with kitchen parchment and spray it with nonstick cooking spray. Divide the dough into 3 equal pieces and roll each piece into a rope about 2 inches in diameter. Cut each rope into 1½-inch pieces. This should give you roughly 35 rolls.
Place the rolls on the prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Cover with a clean dishcloth and let rise again for 30 minutes.
Heat the oven to 425°F. In another bowl, combine the baking soda and warm water. Transfer the baking soda solution to a spray bottle and spray the rolls generously with the solution. Sprinkle with extra kosher salt if you like. Bake for 15 minutes and the rolls are a rich dark brown all over. Remove from the oven and let cool on the baking sheet.

Miraval makes fresh bread for dinner every night, and the pretzel bread is my absolute favorite! This recipe looks easy enough that I’ll try it, although I most enjoy being at Miraval and having Justin’s team bake it. Thank you for sharing!
