Making these Homemade Soft Pretzels was fun, the kneading is just so relaxing (I love kneading so don’t be surprised.) and then comes the shaping and proofing. The first time I made pretzels the outcome was a complete fail!
I am aware that sea salt is usually sprinkled over the pretzels but I tried using raw sugar and I’m in love with it. With pretzels, I usually serve jam or cream, don’t raise your eyebrows, I’m not friend with mustard, therefore, I had to improvise.
Making Homemade Soft Pretzels.
You are probably thinking what else did I change, well, I didn’t boil the pretzels! I dipped the pretzels in warm water mixed with baking soda, sprinkled these soft light pretzels with raw sugar and baked it.
Eggs were used in some pretzels recipes but I didn’t use any in mine. Although there are no eggs in this recipe, the result was delicious, fluffy, and light pretzels. Baking time can be tricky to some, especially if you are not used to baking bread. These pretzels can be done without turning brown or dark golden color.
This might make you want to bake these Homemade Soft Pretzels longer which will produce over baked dry pretzels. Some ovens do not distribute heat evenly, therefore the bread or the cake is baked but is not brown nor golden in color.
