Pretzel: Oktoberfest Bread



Have you ever eaten a pretzel? If so, chances are you still want it. Today’s recipe will give you instructions for preparing a typical German bread. But do you know how to prepare them even if you cross the border?

In Munich, it is often found as an accompaniment to Weißwurst, the Bavarian white sausage, to be tasted strictly with sweet mustard! Let’s see together how to prepare these delicious and soft Pretzels characterized by this ring shape with both knotted ends. They represent one of the symbols of Oktoberfest, the famous beer festival in the southern region of Germany. The recipe is very simple, and differs from other sourdough products by the typical boiling that precedes the baking of your pretzels.


500 g flour 200 ml lukewarm water 50 g softened butter salt to taste 1 packet of dry yeast 1 teaspoon coarse sugar salt to taste crumbled bacon to taste 1 egg


As with all sourdough recipes, the first thing to do is activate the yeast. Then put the lukewarm water and a teaspoon of sugar in a bowl or better the bowl of your mixer if you have it. This will help fuel the brewer’s yeast to activate. Let sit for about 5 to 10 minutes, until a foam forms on the surface. Then add the flour to the water and yeast, and start kneading vigorously. Add the soft butter cut into cubes and continue mixing until the butter is completely absorbed and you will obtain a smooth and homogeneous mixture. This will add shine and softness to your pretzels. Let the dough rest for at least 1 hour, or until it has doubled in size. Then cut the Bretzel dough into about 12 pieces of 70g each, stretch the dough creating a sausage, form a U, then take the ends and bring them towards the center, fixing them in the center by pressing with your finger. Let your pretzels sit for about 10 minutes and in the meantime put a saucepan or large saucepan with water to boil. Salt the water and soak the pretzels for 30 seconds on each side, then place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and brush them with the beaten egg. Decorate them with pieces of crispy bacon, to try our version, and coarse salt then bake the pretzels until they are golden brown, at 180 degrees for at least 20 minutes.
