I love going to the mall. Especially when the soft pretzels stands pop up. Soon I wanted more and more but, I wasn’t going to go to the mall every, single day. So I came up with a simple solution: Find a recipe. And I did.

30-Minute Homemade Soft Pretzels

Yields: 8-10 pretzels

Ingredients:30-Minute Homemade Soft Pretzels | Born to Bake Forever | htp://borntobakeforever.wordpress.com

  • 1 and 1/2 cups warm water
  • 1 packet active instant yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 3 3/4 – 4 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • coarse sea salt for sprinkling


  1. Preheat oven to 425 F degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  2. Dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir with a spoon until fairly mixed, about 1 minute. Some clusters of yeast will remain. Add salt and sugar; stir until fairly combined. Slowly add 3 cups of flour, 1 cup at a time. Mix with a wooden spoon until dough is thick. Add 3/4 cup more flour until the dough is no longer sticky. If it is still sticky, add up to 1/2 cup more. Poke the dough with your finger – if it bounces back, it is ready to knead.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Knead the dough for about 3 minutes and shape into a ball. With a sharp knife, cut ball of dough into 1/3 cup sections. This measurement does not have to be exact – use as much or little dough for each pretzel as you wish – the size of the pretzel is completely up to you.
  4. Roll the dough into a rope with an even diameter. My ropes were twenty inches long. This measurement will depend how large you want the pretzels. Once you have your long rope, take the ends and draw them together so the dough forms a circle. Twist the ends, then bring them towards yourself and press them down into a pretzel shape. See above for link to visual instructions.
  5. In a small bowl, beat the egg and pour into a shallow bowl or pie dish. Dunk the shaped pretzel into the egg wash (both sides). Place on baking sheet and sprinkle with salt.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes at 425 F degrees. Turn the oven to broil and bake for 5 more minutes to brown the tops. Watch closely to avoid burning.
  7. Allow to cool and enjoy. Serve warm or at room temperature. Pretzels may be stored in an airtight container or zipped top bag for up to 3 days (will lose softness). Pretzels freeze well.
