15 mins


1 cup of Maxigenes Full Cream Milk Powder, premade and warm

1 sachet of instant yeast

3 Tbsp brown sugar

2 Tbsp melted butter

1 Tsp table salt

2 ¼ cup plain flour + more for dusting

¼ cup baking soda whisked into 3-4 cups warm water

1 egg

  1. In a mixing bowl, gently whisk warm milk, yeast, brown sugar, butter and salt. Stir in the flour until a dough forms.
  2. Transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead approximately 15 times.
  3. Return the dough to the bowl and drizzle with oil to prevent sticking.
  4. Cover the bowl and set aside for an hour to rise in a warm place.
  5. When the dough has risen, press the dough back down and divide into 6-8 sections. Roll each section into a long and skinny rope, folding into a pretzel shape.
  6. Mix the baking soda and warm water, and dip into baking soda solution and place on lined baking sheet.
  7. Brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with salt. Bake at 230 degrees Celsius for 10-12 minutes.
