I'm sad to say that today is my last day at Luce, where I've been working for a year and a half. The decision was made long ago, despite the fact that I needed a break to refresh myself. During the break, I'll be travel to Europe and try to learn something new. Hopefully, I'll get some idea about what I'd like to do next.
Anyway, here's the recipe for soft pretzels I made two days ago--very easy and tasty!
- 115 g water, luck warm
- 2 g active dry yeast
- 10 g brown sugar
- 70 g bread flour
- 200 g all-purpose flour
- 2 g salt
- 40 g baking soda
- 500 g water, luck warm
1. Dissolve yeast and water together in a mixer.
2. Stir in bread flour and brown sugar, let sit for 15 minutes.
3. Add all-purpose flour and mix until take-up.
4. Add salt and continue to mis until smooth and elastic.
5. Cover and ferment for an hour.
6. After dough has risen, cut into 6 small pieces and roll them into a long rope, then shape.
7. Mix baking soda with water, then dip pretzels in soda solution.
8. Place pretzels on a baking pan lined with silpat, cover and proof until double in size.
9. Brush them with melted butter and bake at 450 degrees for 7 minutes.
10. Brush them again with melted butter, then coat with the cinnamon sugar.
