Just a few simple ingredients is all you need to make Homemade Soft Pretzels. This recipe has a warm, buttery, salty exterior and is delicious by itself, or dunked in your favorite cheese dip!
Preparation time: 30minutes
Cooking time:6 minutes
- 1 1/4 cups water lukewarm
- 1 tablespoon yeast
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 3 to 3 1/2 cups flour
- 1/4 cup baking soda
- 1 1/2 cups hot water
- melted butter and coarse salt
- Cinnamon and sugar
- Shredded cheddar cheese
How To Prepare
Dissolve the yeast and sugar into the warm water.
Add in the flour and mix until combined. No need to knead. Let the dough rise in a warm place until almost doubled which should only take about 20 minutes.
Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Divide the dough into golf ball sized lumps. Roll each ball into a snake or rope. Twist them into pretzel shapes (or whatever shape you’d like!).
In a small bowl or a liquid measuring cup, dissolve the baking soda in the hot water. Dip the pretzels into the solution and place on a well-greased cookie sheet or baking pan.
Bake for about 6 minutes at 500 degrees until they are golden brown.
Remove from the oven and dip the face of the pretzel in melted butter. Add your chosen toppings.
