Enjoy with friends Something for the weekend

Family time and plenty of good food – the two ingredients you need for the perfect lazy weekend…

Twisted pretzel bagels


150g (5¼oz) plain flour, plus more to dust the dough and surfaces

½ tsp instant yeast

1⁄8 tsp salt

1 tsp olive oil, plus more to coat the dough

85ml (3floz) water


750ml (26floz) water

1½ tbsp bicarbonate of soda


2 tsp pretzel salt

1 Combine the flour, instant yeast and salt in a mixing bowl. Add the olive oil and water. Mix and knead by hand until a soft dough forms or put all the ingredients in a stand mixer and let the machine knead the dough for you. Fine tune the dough – if it’s too sticky, add more flour, if it’s too crumbly, add more water.

2 Coat the ball of dough in a drizzle of olive oil. Cover the bowl with a clean kitchen towel and let the dough rest in a warm spot until it doubles in size – about 2-3 hours, depending on the room temperature.

3 Divide the dough into four equal parts, roll each part into a very long rope (about 30cm (12in)), pick it up in the middle, twist the two sides and pinch together the edges so it’s a bagel shape.

4 Preheat the oven to 200°C/Gas Mark 6.

5 In a medium-sized pot, bring the water for the soda bath to a boil. Add the bicarbonate of soda and stir to combine.

6 Cook each pretzel bagel in the baking soda bath for about 1 minute. Transfer them to a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Immediately sprinkle them with the pretzel salt.

7 Bake them in the oven for about 20 minutes until golden.
