Pretzel Buns

| eat in my kitchen |

Pretzel buns are a German classic, called 'Laugenbrötchen' in German. The yeast dough is made with a bit of butter for the rich taste, it has to rise twice. Once the buns are shaped with the right technique, they have to cook in boiling water mixed with baking soda for a minute before baking, basically like bagels. The soda solution provides a high ph-value, not as high and strong as lye solution which is often used in professional bakeries, but it’s safer and creates a similar browning effect.
