Quantity Ingredient
250 g Wheat Flour Type 550
20 g Yeast
0,5 tsp Sugar
0,15 l Water
0,5 tsp Salt
10 g Butter
1 tsp Sodium bicarbonate

Lye pretzels can be used in many different ways. Pour the flour into a bowl. Dissolve fresh yeast and sugar in 0.15 litre lukewarm water and pour into flour. Add salt and soft butter and knead. Form the dough into a roll on a lightly floured work surface. Cut into 6 pieces and form into 40 cm long rolls, the middle thick and the ends thin. Make pretzels from them. Cover with a cloth and leave to rise for 10 minutes. In a pot bring a litre of water with baking soda to the boil. Switch to medium temperature. Dip the pretzel into the water for 30 seconds. Remove with a skimmer and drain. Refrigerate the pretzels for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 225° C and bake the pretzel on the middle shelf for 20 minutes. Then brush with water and sprinkle with salt.
