Indulge yourself with a yummy pretzel, simple to make and taste great sprinkled with gorgeous caraway seeds.


  1. Stir the yeast into 500g of the flour. Add the warm water and stir to form a loose batter. Cover with cling film or a damp tea towel and set aside in a warm place for a few hours, or until the batter has almost doubled in size and the surface is covered with air bubbles.

  2. Place the remaining flour in a mixing bowl. Add the salt and sugar, followed by the olive oil, caraway seeds and the risen pretzel batter. Mix well to form a smooth dough that comes away cleanly from the sides of the bowl.

  3. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead well for several minutes until smooth and elastic. Grease a baking tray.

  4. Roll the dough out into a sausage shape about 1" thick. Form the dough into a large figure of eight pretzel shape and pinch the ends together to secure. Place on the baking tray. Cover and set aside to rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes.

  5. Heat the oven to 220°C (200°C fan, 430°F, gas mark 7).

  6. Mix the beaten egg with the water and brush the mixture over the pretzel. Bake for 30 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through. Cool on a wire rack.
