Easy Homemade Soft Pretzels

Ingredients:
  • 1 and ¼ cup warm water
  • 2 teaspoons dry active yeast
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar or brown sugar
  • 3 cups bread flour OR all-purpose flour PLUS some for dusting
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons soft butter
  • 8 cups of water
  • ⅓ cup of baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup of pretzel salt
  • Silver Spring Beer'n Brat Mustard
Directions:
  1. Add yeast and sugar to warm water. Let stand for 5 minutes
  2. Combine Yeast water with flour, butter and kosher salt in a stand mixer.
  3. Mix on low for 2 minutes then turn speed to medium and mix for 5 minutes
  4. Cut dough into 8 pieces and place on a floured surface. Cover with a kitchen towel and let rest for 10 minutes
  5. Prepare 2 sheet pans with parchment paper
  6. Roll each dough piece into 20-inch ropes and form into pretzel shape
  7. Place the pretzels onto prepared pan
  8. Cover each pan with a kitchen towel and let the pretzels rise in a warm place for 30 -40 minutes
  9. Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees
  10. Boil 8 cups of water, add the baking soda
  11. Boil 2-3 pretzels at a time for 30 seconds each side. Drain well with a slotted spoon and place back on prepared sheet pan
  12. Brush each pretzel with beaten egg and sprinkle with pretzel salt or your favorite seasoning
  13. Bake the pretzels for 12-14 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through cooking.
  14. Let the pretzels cool for about 5 minutes before serving. The pretzels are best served warm but they are certainly good the next day. Place them into an airtight container for storage
  15. Serve with Silver Spring Beer'n Brat Mustard for dipping.

Cooking note: The texture of your soft pretzel is determined by the type of flour you use. You can use either bread flour for a chewy pretzel or all-purpose flour for a fluffy texture. The higher protein content in bread flour makes all the difference. Try combining the two types of flour to make your own custom blend.
