About this recipe: This easy to make dough can be shaped into pretzels or bread sticks.


Serves: 12 

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried active baking yeast
  • 175ml (6 fl oz) warm water (45 C)
  • 1/2 teaspoon caster sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 280g (10 oz) bread flour
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons coarse salt, or Maldon Sea Salt flakes

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, combine yeast mixture, sugar, salt and half of the flour; beat well. Beat in the remaining flour, a little at a time, until a stiff dough is formed. Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover, and let rise until doubled in volume.
  3. Preheat oven to 230 C / Gas mark 8. Lightly grease a baking tray.
  4. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide into 12 pieces. Roll pieces out into long sticks and form into pretzel shape. Place pretzels on prepared baking sheet. Brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with coarse salt.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes, until golden brown.

I only got 8 decent sized ones out of the mixture. Don't cook them over the suggested time as they become very hard. Tasted wonderful though. - 04 Sep 2011
