Homemade pretzels

I have loved eating pretzels since childhood, they are the one fairground treat I can always call upon myself to enjoy. The taste of salty goodness mixed with the doughy & buttery bread makes for a very happy Amy. Now, as much as I love a good pretzel, you'll seldom find me in the places where pretzels are born; fairgrounds, movie theatres or malls. You can imagine my dilemma when a craving for pretzels came over me the other day, there were no fairgrounds to visit, no movie I dreamed of seeing and it felt silly to visit the mall only for a pretzel, so I took to Google and found a homemade pretzel recipe. I made them as soon as I read the ingredients list and they ended up tasting just like the ones I remember eating as a little girl. Here's to never giving up on the foods we loved in our childhood!

What you'll need for 8 fluffy pretzels:
2.5 cups of all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon sugar
2.25 teaspoon instant yeast
1 cup of warm water 

1/2 cup warm water
1 tablespoon baking soda
vegetable oil 
coarse sea salt
3 tbsp unsalted melted butter

To follow the recipe I followed step by step, visit fifteen spatulas.

Note:  The recipe calls for 9-10 minutes but mine were ready in 7 minutes. Oven temperatures may vary so be careful not to burn your precious pretzels. I will certainly make this recipe again, but maybe next time I'll add a little cinnamon or stuff the dough with mozzarella. Enjoy.


  1. Aahhh, I used to make homemade pretzels before I went gluten-free/vegan! They used to come out SO good, SO much better than store-bought--or should I say, what, festival-bought? Sports-game-vendor-bought? Haha, either way, glad you finally found a nice recipe to make your own!

  2. I love pretzels! Especially homemade ones. :)

    Yum is all I can say :) I will have to try making these.

  4. Stunning photos! I'm so glad I stumbled across your blog :-)

  5. You know, pretzels are some of my guiltiest pleasures. Especially the soft and savory. I need to save this recipe! Also -- I am happy to have found your blog! Or, more so you found me. I can't wait to follow along!

  6. Okay, these pretzels looks delightfully gourmet. I love the shape. Adding cinnamon sounds like a fantastic idea. :] // ☼ ☯

  7. mmm a mozzarella stuffed one sounds *amazing*, though I'd love a plain one, too. Just like you I was a sucker for soft pretzels as a kid- especially if you dip it into melted cheese. Aw god, now i definitely need to make these today ;) Thanks for sharing this super easy recipe!
