Pretzels pronto

There must be something wrong with me, But tonight I wanted something savoury, something crunchy and salty, which is definalty not like me. I needed a salt hit quick...Pretzels were calling.

I have only ever eaten tiny supermarket outta the bag pretzels, so i was looking forward to this challenge, only problem, no yeast to make my dough, dough. Not having quite the right ingredients doesn't stop me. Searched the internet for a while and found me an alternative recipe for baking soda pretz.

  • 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tsp milk/ enough to bind dry ingredients to form dough.
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • salt and butter (melted) for topping
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, sift together whole wheat flour and baking soda. Stir in milk and vinegar until dough pulls together. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead briefly to form a firm dough.
  3. Divide dough into equal pieces. Roll each piece into a long wiggly cylinder approximately 8 inches long. Form into classic pretzel shape. place on lightly greased baking sheets.
  4. brush with melted butter and Sprinkle each pretzels with salt, and bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 10 minutes. 
I had mine warm with some hummus for dipping.


I'm sure my sweet tooth will be back to cover stuff in chocolate tomorrow.
