Soft Pretzels Recipe

Prep. time:25Min. Cooking time: 20Min. Yield: 12

Ingredients

  • 360 ml lukewarm water
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar
  • 1 packet dry active yeast
  • 570-600g all-purpose flour
  • 9 cups water
  • 3 tbsp. oil (distributed) or melted unsalted butter
  • 120g baking soda
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • salt that is coarse for sprinkling

Directions

  1. Combine water, salt, and sugar in a mixing dish. Add the yeast and let aside for 5 minutes, or until the yeast begins to bubble.
  2. Combine the flour and 2 tablespoons of oil in a mixing bowl and stir until a dough forms.
  3. Cover the dough and cover the basin with the remaining oil.
  4. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and set aside for 1 hour in a warm location.
  5. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit (230 degrees Celsius). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Silicone baking mats are highly recommended over parchment paper. If using parchment paper, lightly spray with nonstick spray or grease with butter. Set aside.
  6. Poke the dough with your finger – if it bounces back, it is ready to knead. Knead for 1-2 minutes.
  7. Cut the dough into eight pieces and wrap each piece into a thin rope, twisting the two ends together to make a pretzel shape.
  8. Bring a big saucepan of water to a roaring boil with baking soda. Cook each pretzel for 25-30 seconds on each side in a pot of boiling water. Lift the pretzel out of the water and allow as much of the excess water to drip off. Place pretzel onto prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle each with coarse sea salt. Repeat with remaining pretzels. If desired, you can cover and refrigerate the boiled/unbaked pretzels for up to 24 hours
  9. Brush the pretzels with egg wash or you can bake them as such. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  10. Serve warm and Enjoy!

Notes

Baking Soda Bath- The baking soda bath is strongly recommended because it helps create that chewy texture and distinctive pretzel flavor. If skipping, brush the shaped and unbaked pretzels with a mixture of 1 beaten egg + 1 Tablespoon of dairy or nondairy milk. This is known as an egg wash. The egg wash will help the salt stick.

Cinnamon sugar Pretzels- Melt 4 Tablespoons (60g) of unsalted or salted butter (your choice). Brush the baked and warm pretzels with melted butter then dip the tops into a mix of cinnamon and sugar. I usually use 3/4 cup (150g) of granulated sugar and 1 and 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon. Cinnamon sugar pretzels are best served that day because due to the melted butter topping, they become soggy after a few hours.

Storage- Cover and store leftover soft pretzels at room temperature for up to 3 days. They lose a little softness over time. To reheat, microwave for a few seconds or bake in a 350°F (177°C) for 5 minutes.
