It could be some subconscious thing from when i lived in Germany, but i absolutely love soft pretzels. Never did i know it was so easy to make my own delicious ones. Some of the instructions might seem odd, but each step is essential for them to taste right.

1 Package active dry yeast
6 Tablespoons unsalted butter

1 egg beaten with 1 Tablespoons cold water
Sea Salt

  • Mix water, brown sugar, yeast, and butter. Cover and let sit for 5 minutes
  • Add salt and flour and mix for about 3 minutes
  • If dough is too wet, add small amounts of flour until it is more sticky
  • Remove dough from bowl and knead into a ball
  • Coat a medium sized bowl in vegetable oil and turn the dough ball around in it. 
  • Let dough ball sit in bowl for an hour to rise
  • Boil water in a sauce pan and add baking soda.
