We celebrated a little 'Oktoberfest' last weekend, in November (oops!) but it was great nonetheless! And for us, it was the perfect excuse tro try a new, German recipe! Pretzels :D
Verder moesten er natuurlijk Duitse worstenbroodjes, 'knödel' en braadworst verorberd worden! En laten we het Duitse bier niet vergeten! Letterlijk een heerlijke avond dus! :)
We found a great recipe here. It's in Dutch so I'll translate it for you!
- 400 grams of flour
- 7 grams of dry yeast
- 1 teaspoon of sugar
- 2 teaspoons of baking powder
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon of coarse salt
1. Put flour, yeast, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Make a small den in the middle and pour in 250 ml. of warm water. Knead for about 8 minutes to make a supple dough. Put a moist tea towel over the bowl and leave the dough to rise for 30 minutes.
2. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees Celsius. Knead dough again and divide into 10 equal pieces. Roll pieces to make 10 strings (about 40 cm. long each)
3. Now it's time to maken the pretzels! Form a U, cross the ends, again and fasten to the curve of the U.
Put your pretzels on a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Apply a layer of beaten egg yolk to the pretzels and sprinkle coarse sea salt on top. Let them rise for 10 more minutes. Bake for 15 minutes in the middle of the oven.
Tadaa! Fresh pretzels! Have fun!
Hele fijne avond!
Have a wonderful evening!
