Delicious soft pretzels with a cinnamon-sugar or a sea salt topping. This is the version with gluten.



For the dough

  • 1 ½ cup warm water
  • 1 1/8 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup white bread flour
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

For the water bath and topping

  • 34 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • Sea salt
  • Cinnamon and sugar


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius or 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Put the 1 ½ cups warm water in a bowl and dissolve the yeast in it. Stir the sugar and salt into the water.
  3. Use a mixer (or if you want a good workout: your hands) to combine the bread flour, all-purpose flour, salt and the yeast mixture. Knead until the dough is elastic, about 4-6 minutes.
  4. Grease a bowl, put the dough in and cover the bowl. Leave to rise in a warm place for 1 hour.
  5. Cut the dough into 10 pieces and roll each piece out into a long rope. Fold it into a pretzel shape.
  6. Layer a baking sheet with baking parchment. Put the cup warm water and the tablespoon of baking soda in a shallow bowl and dip in the pretzels one by one. Put them on the baking sheet.
  7. Cover the pretzels and allow them to rise for another 45 minutes to an hour.
  8. Melt the butter and brush it onto the pretzels. Top the pretzels with salt or a mixture of sugar and cinnamon. We choose to make 6 sweet and 4 savoury pretzels.
  9. Bake the pretzels for 10-12 minutes.
  10. You can store the pretzels up to 4 days into an airtight box. If you want to keep them longer you can freeze them.
