Easy Soft Pretzels
Updated: Feb 6
Sunday morning adventure! For those who are Pretzel fans, I would strongly recommend this homemade recipe!
8 gr. dry yeast
1 teaspoon granulated Sugar
260 ml lukewarm milk
260 ml lukewarm water
1 teaspoon salt
80 gr. butter (melted)
1 kg. all purpose flour
1,5 lt. water
4 tablsp. baking soda
Salt Flakes or
In a big bowl or in a mixer's bowl add dry yeast, sugar and milk, whisk and allow 10 minutes for the yeast to be activated.
Then add water, salt, butter and whisk.
Gradually add flour, while mixing and knead (either with the mixer or by hands) until there is an elastic dough.
Transfer into a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let the dough rest for about 30 minutes or until doubled.
Grease your hands with a bit of olive oil, so that the dough won't stick to your hands and cut the dough into 13 to 15 pieces (depends on how thick you want them to be).
Roll out each one into a roped-shaped piece and form the pretzels or just make them into desired shape.
Fill large pan with water, add baking soda and once it is boiled, add each pretzel with a slotted spoon and let boil for 30 seconds.
Place in an oven pan with baking paper, score them with a knife, add salt flakes and let them rest for 20 minutes.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
Enjoy your homemade Pretzels!!!
