Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8 pretzels
  • 12.5 oz (2.5 cups, 350 grams) all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 tsp instant quick rise yeast
  • 1 cup warm water (110 °F/43 °C)
  • ...
  • 1 cup (230 ml) warm water
  • 2 tbsp baking soda
  • vegetable oil for greasing the baking pan
  • coarse sea salt for sprinkling
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  1. In the bowl of your electric mixer, combine all the dough ingredients and knead with the dough hook on medium low for 5 minutes. The dough should feel soft and smooth, not sticky to the touch.
  2. Place the dough ball in a lightly greased bowl, dust with flour, cover with a plastic wrap and let rise for about 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven to 450 °F (230 °C) and lightly grease a baking sheet with vegetable oil.
  4. Remove the dough from the bowl and place onto a very lightly oiled countertop. Divide the dough into 8 pieces (just cut it with a knife). For a ball out of each piece.
  5. Whisk to combine the warm water and baking soda and cook in the microwave for 1 minute.
  6. Roll each of the eight pieces into a long rope, and shape each one into a pretzel. Dip each pretzel in the soda wash and place onto the greased baking sheet. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt, then let them rest for 8 minutes.
  7. Bake for 9 to 10 minutes until the pretzels are golden brown. Brush the pretzels with the melted butter while they are hot out of the oven. Enjoy!
