42 g yeast

½ tsp sugar

500 ml lukewarm milk

1500 g flour

1 tbsp fine salt

2 tbsp SOLIA Smile

3 tbsp sodium bicarbonate

coarse salt

Sieve the flour into the bowl.

Dissolve the yeast and the sugar in a part of the milk in a small bowl. Let it rise for 15 minutes on a warm place.

Spread the salt on top of the flour. Give the yeast, sugar, milk mixture, the oil and the rest of the warm milk into the flour. Knead until the dough is smooth. Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel and let the dough prove for 45 minutes

After 45 minutes spread out a bit of flour on your working table and knead the dough shortly. Form a 20 cm long dough roll and cut it in 20 pieces. Roll from each piece a 50cm string and form the pretzel.

Mix 2 l of water together with the sodium bicarbonate and let it boil for 10 minutes.

Pre-heat the oven - top and bottom heat to 220°C.

Give some pretzels into the cooking lye and let them boil for 20 to 30 seconds. Take out with a skimmer and drain the pretzels on a wire rack.

Transfer the pretzels on a good greased baking sheet. Make a cut on the thicker part of the pretzels.
Salt lightly with coarse salt or sea salt and bake for 20 minutes.
