Have I mentioned how much I love bread? This months theme for Bread Bakers is all about Thanksgiving Bread. My Thanksgiving will not be complete without these Cast Iron Parker House Rolls sitting on the table. I honestly think this is why I cant keep my weight down. They are so good and so worth it. Do some extra exercise if you must. Just don’t miss out on these. Oh and the leftovers are fantastic for breakfast all slathered in jam.

#BreadBakers is a group of bread loving bakers who get together once a month to bake bread with a common ingredient or theme.  Follow our Pinterest board right here. Links are also updated each month on this home page.

We take turns hosting each month and choosing the theme/ingredient.

Cast Iron Parker House Rolls

Yield: 12 rolls

Prep Time: 2 hours 30 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 2 hours 50 minutes

Ingredients:

1 cup warm water

1 cup warm milk

1/2 cup honey

2 1/4 teaspoons yeast (1 packet)

1/2 cup butter

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

5-6 cups flour

Directions:

Combine the warm water, milk, honey and yeast in a medium bowl. Allow the yeast to prove for 5 minutes. It should look bubbly. To your mixer add the yeast mixture, butter, flour and salt. Using your dough hook, kneed the dough until combined about 3-5 minutes.

Transfer dough to a work surface and shape into a rectangle about 1 inch thick cut into uniformly sized pieces. Form each piece into a ball pinching the seams on the underside making a smooth top. Transfer dough to a greased pan, I use my Cast Iron Pan. Give the rolls a bit of room to rise. Allow to rise about 2 hours. Preheat oven to 375. Bake for about 20 minutes.

Serve warm.

    These turned out so well! I love that there are 13 (unless I counted wrong!). The last time I baked rolls in my skillet I found that 13 fit perfectly and I laughed thinking of the saying “a baker’s dozen”. Maybe that is how it started– the baker had room for 13 rather than 12 in the pan!

    A few months ago I tried some Parker House rolls but they came out a bit dense (I think I made them too small). I will have to give yours a go!
