Amazing pretzels! Made the dough in the thermomix for Sunday brunch in less than five minutes. Recipe from “Festive flavour” only needs yeast, milk, flour, sugar and olive oil. Recipe uses 550g of flour for this recipe and we made 14 pretzels. The pretzels are dipped into a baking soda and water before being baked. The trick we’ve learnt with the dough is to let the yeast rest in the first mix of milk yeast and sugar for 10 minutes, it starts to froth on the top as it activates. Then add the flour and salt and use dough mode to knead for two minutes. Proving the dough (we just left it in the thermomix bowl) till it doubled in size took less than an hour. So while you have to think in advance when you want to eat, the dough is so easy to make and it’s a great fun activity for the kids to roll the pretzel shapes. Baking only takes between 8-12 minutes at 200C. Brushed with butter and sea salt after coming out of the oven.
