Cinnamon-Raisin Soft Pretzels

1 pkg. yeast

1 1/2 C. warm water

2 T. brown sugar

1 t. salt

2 C. cake flour

2-2 1/4 C. all purpose flour

3/4 C. raisins

2 T. baking soda

2 C. hot water

3 T. butter or margarine, melted

3/4 C. sugar

1 t. cinnamon

In a large bowl dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in brown sugar and salt. Add cake flour and stir well. Add enough all-purpose flour to form a soft dough. Stir in raisins.

Turn onto floured board and knead until smooth and elastic. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top of dough. Cover and let rise in warm place about 30 minutes.

Punch down dough and divide in 14 small balls. Roll each ball into a long rope. Dissolve baking soda in hot water. Dip each rope in soda water and drain on paper towels. Form into pretzel shape and place on greased baking sheets.

Bake at 400°F. for 15 minutes. Mix sugar and cinnamon in small bowl. Brush pretzels with butter then dip in cinnamon-sugar. Serve warm.
