Amish Soft Pretzels

This past weekend, our friend Julia (you met her here) came to visit. She had moved back from China and is looking to start a career in Toronto. On Saturday morning, while I was making us pancakes for breakfast, I noticed an egg sticking to the carton. We thought it was cracked, but only when we took it out did it break!

I had already used the egg I needed for pancakes, so instead of wasting this extra egg, my mom decided to make pretzels.

She had clipped this recipe from the Toronto Star and stuck it on our fridge:

It is pretty simple recipe, but instead of bread flour, we used all-purpose flour.

Don't they look cute? We also decided to add a little sweetness by sprinkling cinnamon sugar on top:

Ready for the oven:

Mmm, I love the texture of the pretzel:


  1. they look fantastic!
    can I get one?;)

    grettings from Poland:)

  2. These look yummy! I have been craving pretzels lately too!

  3. The photos came out great.Makes me want to eat one! I've never tried to make pretzels. Its on my wish list!

  4. I love the fact that this recipe doesn't require waiting for the dough to rise. I just made these and they're great, soft and doughy. I used garlic salt on half and cinnamon sugar on the others. It's a toss-up as to which ones I like best.

  5. These are dangerous! Watch out! Your photos are wonderful, too! Thanks for this!
