Pretzel Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 1 1/8 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 1/8 teaspoons Salt
  • 1 Cup bread flour
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 2 tablespoons Baking soda
  • coarse salt (for topping)
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter melted


  • Add warm water to a large mixing bowl. Sprinkle the yeast evenly over the surface. Let the yeast activate then stir in the sugar and salt.
  • Add the flours slowly while stirring until it forms a soft dough. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic. Place back in the bowl and cover with a damp towel. Let rise for 30 minutes in a warm, draft-free location.
  • While the dough is rising, prepare the water bath by mixing the warm water and baking soda. Stir well.
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F or 230 degrees C. Grease a baking sheet.
  • When the dough has risen, pinch off pieces of the dough and roll out into a long, thin (1/2-inch thick or less) ripe. Shape into a pretzel shape, or other desired shape. Dip the pretzel in the warm baking soda solution and place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake at 450 degrees F for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Remove the pretzels from the oven and brush with melted butter. Sprinkle the hot pretzels with the coarse salt. READ THESE: MORE PRETZEL RECIPES Soft Pretzels Recipe Peanut Butter and Pretzel Cookies Recipe
