Yesterday was a long day that started at 5.45 with the run to swim practice and ended around half past midnight after a girls night out. Although it could have been 1.30 or even 11.30 as I was confused by the clock change!
Somewhere in between haircuts, shopping and taxiing the footie fans of the family to and from the station I managed to bake a cake for my Mum's birthday and some pretzels.
I used the same soft pretzel recipe that I've previously used for the pretzels although I did use self raising flour and butter this time as per the original recipe.
I was in a bit of a rush to go out and got Hanna to help and didn't bother with the bicarb bath and instead just brushed with melted butter and cinnamon sugar (equal parts cinnamon and caster sugar).
They were very nice & the kids loved them, although they do seem more like little bread rolls than pretzels. Next time we'll definitely do the bicarb bath and roll them out longer to keep the pretzel shape.
