1 cup Warm Water (105F-110F)
1 tablespoon Active Dry Yeast
1 tablespoon Cane Sugar
1 teaspoon Pink Salt
1 tablespoon Melted Butter
3 cups Bread Flour
4-6 cups Water
⅓ cup Baking Soda
Pinch Flake Salt
1 Egg (beaten)
2 tablespoons Melted Butter
1-2 teaspoons Olive Oil or Avocado Oil (for greasing bowl for proofing)
1. Combine warm water, sugar, butter, and yeast in a bowl and stir. Set aside for 5 minutes.
2. Combine dry dough ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer. Add bloomed yeast. Attach dough hook and knead dough for 7-10 minutes. You may need to scrape down the sides a couple of times.
3. Place dough in a greased bowl or greased instant pot liner. If using instant pot, set to yogurt setting (107F) for 30 minutes. If using a non-drafty area, cover dough with plastic wrap and set aside for 2-3 hours until doubled in size.
4. Remove dough and place on a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Cut dough into 8 equal pieces. They will be roughly 100 gm each. Roll into a ball, pinching dough as needed to create a flat bottom on each ball. Place each dough ball on the mat or parchment paper with at least 2 inches between each ball. Cover with a towel and let rest for 15 minutes.
5. Preheat oven to 425F. Add 4-6 cups of water to a large pot and bring it to a boil. Then add baking soda.
6. Add balls to the boiling water (as many as will fit with ample room) and boil for roughly 40-45 seconds flipping halfway through. Remove with a slotted spoon and set on the mat. Continue cooking in batches until all balls are boiled.
7. Beat egg in a small bowl and brush the tops and sides of the balls with the egg wash. Using a sharp knife, cut an X into the top of each ball. Sprinkle each ball with a pinch of flake salt. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until tops are golden brown. Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack. Brush the tops and sides with melted butter. Enjoy!

Want to know how to make pretzel buns That taste like you're at some fancy Restaurant then keep on watching [Music] Hey guys welcome back to another video If you're new here i'm tara a nurse Practitioner that loves sharing easy to Make recipes and tips and tricks so that You can make restaurant quality food at Home today we are making pretzel buns I have been wanting to make pretzel buns For so long now every time i go to a Restaurant and order a burger i always Want a pretzel bun or a chicken sandwich A tofu sandwich whatever kind of Sandwich you want trust me you want it On a pretzel bun they are so good i'm Going to be using my instant pot to Proof the dough this is such a great Hack it only takes 30 minutes if you Don't have an instant pot don't worry You can proof your dough in a warm Environment it'll just take roughly two To three hours but if you do have an Instant pot i'm going to show you guys How easy it is to use your instant pot To speed this process up Be sure you stay all the way through the End of the video you guys love those Recipe cards so i've included a recipe Card at the end you could take a Screenshot of for easy reference if You're excited to make delicious pretzel Buns give this video a big thumbs up and
Let's head straight to the kitchen [Music] We're going to start with some water one Of the most important steps when you're Making bread from scratch at home is to Make sure you're using warm water you do Not want to use hot water or else it Will kill the yeast i find a temperature Of roughly 100 degrees to 107 degrees Give or take is the perfect temperature We're gonna add the water to a bowl i'm Using the bowl of my stand mixer We're gonna add some sugar Along with some yeast i'm using active Dry yeast i'm also gonna add a little Bit of butter i recommend melting the Butter before you add it unlike what i Did here which was just throw it in and We're gonna grab our flour bread flour Is the perfect type of flour to use Obviously whenever you're making bread If you don't have bread flour Alternatively you could use all-purpose Flour if you're looking to use whole Wheat flour i probably wouldn't do more Than half whole wheat and half bread Flour or half whole wheat and half All-purpose flour because otherwise the Consistency of the pretzel buns would Probably be too dense So add the bread flour right to the Mixing bowl Then we're gonna add a little bit of Salt
And now i'm gonna move the mixing bowl To my stand mixer And attach my dough hook And then simply turn it on and we're Going to knead this for about 5 to 10 Minutes The kneading process whether you're Using a stand mixer or you're needing it By hand takes around 10 minutes i find It helpful to stop the mixer or stop Mixing it with your hands and scrape Down the sides of the bowl it just helps Everything to become incorporated a Little bit easier you might also need to Add just a splash of water to help for The dough to come together a little bit Better since altitude humidity in the Air there are so many variables that can Affect dough make sure if you're adding Water however that you only add a Tablespoon at a time and incorporate That in before you continue adding any Additional water As soon as the dough hugs the hook we're Going to grab our instant pot instant Pot is perfect to speed up the proofing Process simply remove it from the bowl Probably going to find that the dough is A little bit more dense rather than Sticky like typical bread recipes that I've made on this channel if you haven't Seen any other bread recipes on this Channel before i will link some of my Favorites below because they're so good
But that dough i usually leave it a Little bit more sticky this dough However we're making pretzel buns so We're actually going to Boil the dough before we bake it in the Oven so you want your dough to be a Little bit more dense just until it's About the consistency like this Make sure you add a drizzle of olive oil Or whatever kind of oil that you want to Add to the instant pot and then grease Both sides of the dough so you don't get That crust on top and if you don't have The lid that i'm using here simply stick A plate on top that's fine because Remember we're not using the pressure Cook function here we're only using the Yogurt function that's right So just simply set the instant pot to Yogurt and make sure it's on medium so It's 107 degrees And after about 30 minutes your dough is Finished proofing and look at this it is Absolutely perfect it's like it sat for Two to three hours except it was so Quick so we're gonna just pick it up i Like to throw it down just a little bit Just to remove a little bit of that air And we're gonna transfer it over to our Baking mat and now we're gonna separate The dough into even size pieces i like Using my bench scraper here so i can Easily cut the dough into somewhat even Size pieces you don't have this you can
Either tear the dough in half with your Hands or you might find it a little bit Easier to just simply use a knife This dough is very easy to work with the Most important part here is to make all Of the balls roughly the same size so I'm showing a kitchen scale here of Course You don't have a kitchen scale you do Not need to go buy a kitchen scale in Order to make this just break them into Roughly the same size and you will be Good to go So continue just shaping each ball And squeezing the ends underneath To get it as smooth as possible while Rolling out the dough might look very Complicated and difficult to do trust me Guys it's easy and very forgiving it Doesn't matter how smooth you make it as You can see here i'm pinching the dough And trying to form as smooth of a ball As i can but it does not need to be Perfect This is a very fast process especially Because the dough is so easy to work With then we're going to grab a towel And cover it After you have rolled out all of your Dough balls it is very important to Cover it with a towel and let it rest For about 15 minutes this is a very Important part of the bread making Process because the dough needs to relax
A little bit more it is actually going To almost double in size in 15 minutes So do not skip this step Now it's time for us to boil these dough Balls Next we're going to bring a pot of water To boil i suggest using the largest pot That you have and take it from me as You're going to see in just a second Here Don't fill the pot too much to the top Fill it about halfway trust me let me Show you why When the water boils we're gonna add in Our baking soda I decided to leave this horrific mishap In the video to show you guys that these Kinds of things happen in all sorts of Kitchens no matter how much experience You have with something i have never Made pretzel buns before i have used Baking soda in recipes before because I've made bagels and this did not happen I'm still not entirely sure What happened here and it did make a Huge mess In my kitchen but at least it was baking Soda so my stove was very clean at the End of all this I'm using my spider spoon To just Put them inside of the water and i could Fit three in this pot and i'm setting my Timer for 40 seconds you could go
Anywhere from 30 to 60 seconds flip them Over about halfway through and then Remove them back to the same mat that You started on and repeat the process This is a very quick process Very similar to the way you would make Bagels Come to think of it i have not made Bagels for quite some time so if you're Interested in a video on that let me Know in the comments below Once you have finished boiling all of The dough balls grab an egg Mixing up an egg to create an egg wash And then applying it to your buns right Before they go in the oven is a great Way to ensure Your buns are going to be perfectly Golden brown I like to use the entire egg here you'll Find other recipes that only use the egg White experiment if you like or just Simply use the whole egg like i'm doing Here it's entirely up to you We're going to just brush the tops and The sides with this egg mixture And then we're going to grab a sharp Knife to make the classic x formation in The top of a pretzel bun i'm gonna use This knife i love this knife because It's so sharp however it made a very Very very thin slit Inside of the top of the buns next time I'm going to just use a serrated bread
Knife and just actually cut it so that It's a deeper and wider cut but you do Whatever you like I was very light-handed when i was doing This and barely made an x on the top Again next time i'm going to use a Thicker knife then we're going to grab Some salt every recipe that i looked at Before i developed this recipe said to Use salt some type of a coarse salt on Top and then bake it in the oven i Picked up some flake salt it is very Hard to find actually i have never found It in a local grocery store before but They do have it on thrive market i will Leave a link in the description box Below thrive market is now offering 40 Off your order for you to try it for Yourself that's a huge discount when i First tried it out i got 25 off use my Link in the description box below in Case you want to give it a try for Yourself but i love the flake salt it is The perfect texture it's going to be Perfect on whatever you put it on but if You don't have it alternatively just use The thickest type of salt that you can Find Next time i am actually not going to add The flake salt now i think i would Prefer to sprinkle it on after the buns Are already cooked I'm going to give that a try I'm just putting just a couple of flakes
Of salt on top of each Of the buns And we're going to place it into a Preheated oven I was so happy with how these buns Turned out i did add a little bit of Melted butter to the top you don't have To do this but guys i highly highly Recommend adding the butter these buns Would be perfect for any type of Sandwich particularly burgers you guys Have got to try this recipe Looking for more bread recipes click the Playlist on the screen and i will see You over there bye guys [Music]
