  • 1 1/2 cup water warm
  • 1 1/8 teaspoons active dry yeast (1 1/2 pkg.)
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup bread flour
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 2 tablespoons baking soda
  • To taste, coarse salt
  • 4 ounces butter melted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon


  • Sprinkle yeast on lukewarm water in mixing bowl; stir to dissolve. Add sugar, salt and stir to dissolve; add flour and knead dough until smooth and elastic. Let rise at least 1/2 hour. 
  • While dough is rising, prepare a baking soda water bath with 2 cups warm water and 2 tablespoons baking soda. Be certain to stir often. 
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Once the dough has risen transfer the dough to a lightly greased work surface, and divide it into six equal pieces. Roll the six pieces of dough into 12" to 15" ropes. Cut each rope crosswise into about 12 pieces. 
  • Pour the cooled baking soda solution into a pan large enough to hold the bites. Place the bites into the solution, gently swish them around, and leave them there for a couple of minutes. 
  • Transfer them to a greased or parchment-lined baking sheet, and top with pretzel salt or sea salt. Bake the bites for 12 to 15 minutes, until golden brown. 
  • Remove them from the oven, and roll them in the melted butter. For cinnamon-sugar pretzels, toss with cinnamon-sugar once you've rolled the bites in the butter. 
  • Place the bites on a rack. If the bites aren't eaten immediately you should place them in an airtight container. The pretzel bites should be warmed before serving.
