FREE DIY: Whole Wheat Soft Pretzels Recipe!
Can you tell I'm scouring the internet
for some great recipes to make
this Memorial Day Weekend? : )
Whole Wheat Soft Pretzels
1/2 cup water
1 cup milk
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 cup whole wheat flour
3 cups bread flour
1 1/4 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon yeast
8 cups water
1/4 cup baking soda
melted butter & cinnamon sugar
Note: If you don’t have a bread machine, don’t despair. Just keep scrolling to the end for traditional directions.
In the pan of a bread machine, assemble the dough ingredients in the order recommended. Set the machine on dough. When the cycle ends, remove the dough to a lightly oiled surface. Divide the dough into 12 equal portions.
Preheat the oven to 450°. Line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Roll each portion into a long snake, about 18 inches long. Shape the snake into a horseshoe. Twist the sides of the horseshoe, about halfway up, around each other twice. Flip the ends over onto the U of the horseshoe. Press to seal. Continue until all the pretzels are shaped.
Meanwhile, bring the 8 cups water to a boil in a large stockpot. Add the baking soda and continue to boil. Drop the formed pretzels, one at a time into the soda bath. Boil for about 30 seconds and remove to the prepared parchment. Sprinkle with coarse salt, if desired.
Once all the pretzels have been “bathed,” bake them for 9 to 10 minutes or until golden.
If you prefer sweet pretzels, brush the baked pretzels with melted butter and sprinkle them with cinnamon sugar before serving.
If you don’t have a bread machine, you can still make these! Just follow standard procedure for traditional bread dough. Warm the milk and water, add the other ingredients, knead, and rise until doubled in bulk. Continue with the original recipe instructions.
