Pretzel-Making Tips

1. Gather your ingredients. 

To make the perfect soft pretzels at home, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups of warm water
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of kosher salt
  • 1 package of active dry yeast
  • 4 1/2 cups (or 22 oz) of all-purpose flour
  • 2 oz of unsalted butter, melted
  • 2/3 cup of baking soda
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • Coarse salt, for sprinkling

2. Combine the water, sugar, kosher salt and yeast.

In a large bowl, mix the warm water, sugar and kosher salt. Sprinkle the packet of active dry yeast on top and leave the mixture to sit for 5 to 10 minutes, until it turns foamy.

3. Add the flour and butter.

Add the flour and melted butter to the yeast mix and mix till combined. Keep mixing until a smooth dough forms, which pulls away from the sides of the bowl.

4. Leave the dough to rise.

Remove the dough from the mixing bowl and grease the bowl with vegetable oil. Return the dough to the bowl and cover with cling wrap. Leave the dough to sit somewhere warm until it doubles in size — this should take about 50 to 55 minutes.

5. Boil the baking soda and water.

Combine the baking soda with 10 cups of water in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Use this time to prepare two baking sheets — line them with parchment paper and grease lightly with vegetable oil.

6. Twist the pretzels.

Divide the dough into eight equal pieces and use one of the methods described in the sections above to twist the pretzels into shape.

7. Dip the pretzels in boiling water.

One-by-one, dip the pretzels into the boiling water for 30 seconds at a time. Use a slotted spoon or spatula to remove them from the water and place them on the prepared baking sheet.

8. Brush the pretzels with egg yolk.

Mix the large egg yolk with a tablespoon of water, then lightly brush a little egg mixture onto the surface of each pretzel — this will give them a nice, deep brown colour once baked. Sprinkle each pretzel with a little coarse salt.

9. Bake the pretzels.

Bake the pretzels in an oven preheated to 450 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes, until they are dark, golden brown in colour. Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool slightly before eating
