Soft Pretzels

Soft Pretzels

Ingredients

  • 12g fresh yeast or 6g dried yeast

  • 420ml cold water

  • 750g strong white bread flour

  • 14g sea salt

  • 30g caster sugar

Method

  1. Weigh the flour, sugar and salt into a big bowl. Add the oil. Measure the water into a jug. With a fork, stir the yeast into the cold water. Empty the jug into the bowl and stir all the ingredients together.
  2. Knead the dough for about 10 minutes by hand. Once you have a smooth and elastic dough nestle it back into the bowl and cover in cling film with no air gaps. Leave it in a warm place to grow to twice its size or for 45 minutes, whichever is first.
  3. Cut the dough into equal pieces, this amount will make 30 x 40-50g or less if you wish to make them bigger.
  4. Roll them out and then shape.
  5. Preheat an oven to 200°C, or 180°C if using a fan oven.
  6. You can either brush with egg white and sprinkle with sea salt before baking or bake them and then ice or you could even dip them in chocolate!
  7. Bake for about 15 minutes.
  8. Allow to cool and then ice or dip if desired

If poaching

Add 30g sugar to a pot of simmering water, and poach for roughly 10 seconds before turning over and poaching for a further 10 seconds.
Remove them from the water, drain and place onto baking trays lined with baking paper.
Follow instructions 6 - 8. Then eat!
