My Breadman breadmaker came with a recipe book for various breads, doughs, butters, cakes and other desserts. It’s very handy and I love experimenting with the recipes.
The family favorite is homebaked Pretzels. I love making unique shapes for my pretzels. Here’s one that sings…
My husband photographed my process one day, so here are step-by-step photos of me making my homemade Pretzels.
Put ingredients in the breadmaker pan in the following order:
1. 1 1/4 cup water
2. egg yolk, room temperature (reserve egg white for glaze)
3. 1 tbsp oil
4. 2 tbsp sugar
5. 1 tsp salt
6. 1/8 tsp pepper
7. 3 1/2 cups bread flour
8. 1 tbsp active dry yeast
Put the bread pan in the breadmaker and set to Dough Program.
After the breadmaker is done, get the dough out. On a lightly floured surface, cut dough into pieces.
Roll each piece of dough into thin rope.
Shape the rope-shaped dough into pretzels. Place pretzels on a greased baking sheet 1 1/2 inches apart.
Whisk egg white and 1 tbsp water. Brush pretzels with glaze.
Sprinkle with kosher salt on top.
Bake at 375 degrees F for 15 to 20 minutes or until done.
