Orange Pretzel


This is a recipe from a book that I love...."Patisserie" from Christophe Felder

Bretzels Sucre....Sweet Pretzels

15 grams of fresh yeast or 7 grams dry yeast 

3 tbsp warm milk

325 grams all purpose flour

3 eggs

75 grams granulated sugar

1 tbsp vanilla sugar

1 tsp salt

115 grams butter diced and softened

80 grams candied orange peel diced

1 tbsp orange flower water

Egg Glaze

1 egg and milk

Orange Flower Syrup. It is in the recipe, but I didn't make it. For the syrup, you mix all together, heat it until sugar dissolves. Then you brush every sweet pretzel when they are warm.

70 grams of sugar

70 grams of water

2 tbsp orange flower water

Mix the yeast with the milk and 70 grams of flour, Mix it and let it rise for 1 hour. Add the remaining flour, and let it rise for 30-45 minutes in a warm area. Add the eggs, sugar, vanilla sugar, and salt. Knead it well for 5 minutes or until the dough separates from the sides of the bowl. Knead the butter in for 5 minutes. Add the orange candied peel and orange flower water. Shape it in a ball, cover it, and place it in the fridge for 3 hours.

Divide the dough in 6 pieces, and make balls. On a floured surface, stretch each ball in a "pipe", and make a pretzel shape. Place it over parchment paper, and let it rise covered loosely with plastic wrap for 45 minutes. Brush it with egg glaze, and bake them at 350F for 10 minutes, and reduce the temperature to 340F for 20 minutes or until golden brown. ENJOY!
