How to Make Authentic German Pretzels

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 16 steps you must follow to make Authentic German Pretzels in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Put the ◆ dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
  • Step 2
  • Put the yeast in lukewarm water and dissolve. Add the yeast water and butter to the bowl and knead well. (or use a bread machine).
  • Step 3
  • After kneading for 10 minutes, the dough will come together like this. This dough is on the stiff side.
  • Step 4
  • Divide the dough into 6 portions, and round them off.
  • Step 5
  • How to make pretzels: Roll out about 40 cm long, with thin ends and a fat middle.
  • Step 6
  • Twist the ends together once, and make a heart shape. If the dough won't stick to itself, use a little water to help it stick.
  • Step 7
  • I tried making other shapes too. Butter a baking tray. If you use parchment paper, the alkaline nature of the lye in the Laugenwasser may rip it.
  • Step 8
  • Since you'll be using NaOH (lye), put on protective gloves and protective goggles.
  • Step 9
  • Put the lye in a pan, and pour in lukewarm water. If you add boiling water the lye may spit, so don't do that!
  • Step 10
  • Boil the formed dough from step 7 in the alkaline water. When the dough turns yellow take it out with tongs, and put in the buttered baking tray. Boil the dough for 15 to 30 seconds.
  • Step 11
  • This is the dough after it's been poached. Can you tell that the dough has turned a bit yellow? Let it rest like this for 15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  • Step 12
  • Use a knife to slash the tops of the rolls, sprinkle on some coarse salt and put in the oven. (Be sure to put on gloves.) Bake for 15 to 20 minutes and they're done.
  • Step 13
  • This is a Bretzel (pretzel). The name of the bread changes depending on the shape/
  • Step 14
  • This is a Laugenstange.
  • Step 15
  • This is a Broetchen (a little roll).
  • Step 16
  • To make an alkaline Laugenwasser using bicarbonate of soda: Put 2 tablespoons of bicarbonate of soda in 750 ml of water. I boiled the dough for 30 seconds per side. The color is different from the ones boiled in lye water, but they are just as delicious.
