Homemade Soft Pretzels, German-style, easy and so delicious bites that are fail-proof.

INGREDIENTS: – strong bread flour – dried yeast – salt – caster sugar – vegetable oil – milk – water – egg – caraway seeds to garnish

Warm up the milk, add the sugar and yeast and mix well.

Leave the mixture to prove for 10 minutes, it will rise and become frothy.

In a large bowl, add the flour, salt, yeast mixture, water and oil.

Knead for 5 minutes -add more flour if necessary to have a dough does not stick to the hands.

Cover the bowl with a clean tea towel and leave to double up its size for about one hour.

Transfer the dough to a slightly oiled work surface and shape 8 balls.

Roll each ball into a long thin rope

Shape each rope into a pretzel, arrange them on a baking tray, and bake

Super yummy, these pretzels are my favourite snack no matter the season.
