This recipe for pretzels uses traditional Irish soda bread dough instead of a yeast based dough. It's quick and works great! These pretzels come out great, just like the street vendor type.

Directions

  1. In a non-aluminum stock pot, dissolve 1/3 cup baking soda in 5 cups water. Bring water to a boil, and then remove from heat. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, sift together all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, and baking soda. Stir in buttermilk and honey until dough pulls together. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead briefly to form a firm dough.
  3. Divide dough into 12 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a cylinder approximately 12 inches long. Form into classic pretzel shape. Pinch ends to seal. Dip pretzels in baking soda solution and then place on lightly greased cookie sheets.
  4. Sprinkle pretzels with kosher salt, and bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 10 minutes.

These were great but i did make a few modifications. I only had all purpose flour. I brushed them wth melted butter before baking. To make butermilk, add 1T vinegar to a measuring cup ten fill with milk and let sit for 5 minutes. Literally only take 10 minutes to bake! The kids were begging for a snack but I really wanted to make them something different and these were PERFECT!

It was a fast, easy success! I loved how the instructions didn't require a bread machine. PS- It works perfectly fine if you use all purpose flour for wheat and Karo Corn Syrup for honey.

The directions are little unclear as to what to do with the water and soda at first. Once you get over the slight confusion it is a wonderful recipe. I made it with my kindergarten class and they loved it.
