Today I want to introduce you to my new series called: Bree van de Kamp Series.
I was looking for a fun way to share recipes with you guys and since Bree is everyones favourite Desperate Housewife, I thought let's give my recipes a Bree van de Kamp twist.
I will show you how easy it is to bake and cook food from scratch, that even Bree van de Kamp would approve.
Today I will share with you my fool proof way of making pretzels, at home, from scratch. You know that Bree would never just go out and buy ordinary store bought pretzels, so why should you :)?
Of course I am joking and there is nothing wrong with buying pretzels, but I wanted to share my easy dairy free recipe with you anyway (yes, I am lactose intolerant, how Bree van de Kamp of me).
For aprox. 6-8 pretzels (depending on how big you ant to make them) you will need:
3. Take out the dough. Knead it again and cut the pice up into 6-8 pieces. You could weight them to make sure that every single one will be the exact same size, but I usually do not do it. It is homemade after all.
4. Roll the dough into a dough "snake" and try to keep the middle part thicker, as this will be the middle part of the pretzel. Twist the ends 2x and bring up and attach to the left and right side. it sounds more complicated than it is. Just try it out, there is no right or wrong. Let the pretzels dry for 15-20 minutes, as this helps with the next step.
5. Boil the water and add the bicarbonate of soda. Add the pretzels one by one into the cooking solution and wait until they come up to the surface of the water. Take them out and put them on a baking sheet. Sprinkle coarse salt or herbs on top.
6. Bake on 200°C or 400 degrees F for 15-20 minutes. The pretzels should have their signature dark colour.
I hope you liked my recipe and I hope you will give it a try as it is really easy to make from scratch.
