Homemade Pretzels

This homemade pretzel recipe is super yummy! And as usual this very easy, perfect for my mediocre baking skill. My babies loves it. We had tried different toppings such as pepperoni, cinnamon sugar and my favorite garlic Parmesan cheese.

Cinnamon Sugar and Garlic Parmesan Cheese Pretzels

Homemade Pretzels

(Makes 10)

  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 1 1/8 teaspoons active dry yeast (1 1/2 packages)
  • 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
  • To taste, coarse salt
  • 2 - 4 tablespoons butter (melted)


1.Sprinkle yeast on lukewarm water in mixing bowl; stir to dissolve. Add sugar, salt and stir to dissolve; add flour and knead dough until smooth and elastic. Let rise at least 1/2 hour.

2.While dough is rising, prepare a baking soda water bath with 2 cups warm water and 2 tablespoons baking soda. Be certain to stir often.

3.After dough has risen, pinch off bits of dough and roll into a long rope (about 1/2 inch or less thick) and shape. Dip pretzel in soda solution and place on greased baking sheet. Allow pretzels to rise again. 

4. Brush with melted butter, add toppings (optional. Note: not for Cinnamon Sugar).

5.Bake in oven at 450 for about 10 minutes or until golden.
After you brush with butter try sprinkling with coarse salt.
or Garlic Parmesan Cheese, mix freshly grated Parmesan cheese and garlic powder.
or Once Baked:
Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels, try melting a stick of butter in a shallow bowl (big enough to fit the entire pretzel) and in another shallow bowl make a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. Dip the baked pretzel into the butter, coating both sides generously. Then dip again into the cinnamon mixture.
