Method Prep:30min › Cook:20min › Ready in:50min
In a large mixing bowl, dissolve the yeast, brown sugar and salt in 350ml warm water. Stir in flour, and knead dough on a floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, and turn to coat the surface. Cover, and let rise for one hour.
Combine remaining warm water and bicarbonate of soda in a 20cm square tin.
After dough has risen, cut into 12 pieces. Roll each piece into a 3 foot rope, pencil thin or thinner. Twist into a pretzel shape, and dip into the bicarb solution. Place on parchment covered baking trays, and let rise 15 to 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 230 C / Gas 8.
Once risen, bake pretzels for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Brush with melted butter, and sprinkle with coarse salt.
Really easy to make and very tasty- the only thing to be aware of is that they also need an hour to prove on top of the time given so really 1hour and 50 minutes to make. I will certainly be doing them again though. :-) - 02 Jan 2016
