New Year's Pretzel

Happy New Year Everyone!  This is another German tradition to start off the new year.  It is a sweet dough in the shape of pretzel to be accompanied by a nice coffee/tea or a glass of your favourite bubbly!  That would depend on how much you celebrated bringing in the new year.  This is really easy to make and only takes a few minutes plus rising time. It is fun for any time of the year. Yes I could have used a larger baking sheet to give the pretzel more room. I was using my toaster oven for baking instead of the wall oven.

40g fresh yeast
250g milk
500g flour
85g butter
85g sugar
1 egg
pinch of salt

1. Add yeast and milk to bowl
2. Add flour, egg, butter,sugar and salt.
 2 1/2 mins/KNEAD
Let rise in a warm place. 30 minutes
3. Roll into a log on a floured surface and shape into pretzel shape and place on parchment lined baking paper. Let rise another 20 minutes.
Brush with egg white and bake 170C for 25-30 minutes.
