Recipe: Pretzels


This recipe is a combination of Sourdough Pretzels by King Arthur Flour recipe and the Pretzels recipe by Tasty.


  • 190 gr water
  • 220 gr discard sourdough starter
  • 360 gr high protein flour
  • 28 gr milk powder
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp instant yeast
  • Salt or malt for topping
  • ⅔ cup baking soda
  • Water to boil baking soda


  1. Mix and knead the dough ingredients to make a cohesive, fairly smooth dough. It should be slightly sticky.
  2. Cover the dough and let it sit for 1 hour.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a lightly greased work surface, fold it over a few times to gently deflate it, then divide it into 12 or 16 pieces with similar weight.
  4. Roll each piece of dough into a 30 cm rope. Shape each rope into a pretzel.
  5. Boil water and baking soda.
  6. Once boiled, put in the pretzels for 5 seconds for each side.
  7. Arrange on a baking tray which has been lined with parchment paper.
  8. Brush with egg yolk and sprinkle it with a pinch of salt or with malt.
  9. Preheat the oven to 180 degree Celcius. Bake the pretzels for 15-20 minute until golden brown.
  10. Enjoy!
