Homemade Pretzels

I was craving pretzels the other day and decided that I would try to make them myself. I found a bread machine pretzel recipe that looked good, so I tried it out.

Here’s the recipe if you feel adventurous! ;)


1 1/4 C Water
3 1/2 C Flour
1 tsp Salt
1 Egg, separated
1 TBS Oil
1tsp Lemon Juice
2 TBS Sugar
1/8 tsp White Pepper
1 TBS Active Dry Yeast
1 TBS Water


  • Place water, flour, salt, egg YOLK, oil, lemon juice, sugar, pepper & yeast into your bread machine.

  • Run on “Dough” cycle.
  • Remove dough when complete and place on floured countertop.

  • Cut dough into 16 equal pieces.

  • Roll each into a rope (approx 14” long)

  • Shape each rope into a pretzel
  • Place on greased cookie sheet about 1” apart.

  • Whisk together egg white & 1TBS water.
  • Brush each pretzel w/egg mixture
  • sprinkle with Salt, Kosher salt, or sesame seeds.
  • Bake at 375 for 15-20 min.

  • Pretzels will be golden brown.
