Love a soft pretzel but always end up with something too dry when you make them at home? Use the Anova Precision Oven’s steam capability to proof the dough, steam the pretzels, and then switch to browning and baking. It sounds like a lot of steps, but because the oven does the work for you, it’s easy.
Notes: Diastatic malt powder can be found online. It helps with rise, flavor and crumb. It’s also great to add to bagels and waffles. Make sure to also buy some compressed pretzel salt for a true soft pretzel experience.
You can use two racks to bake all of the pretzels at once. You may need to rotate the baking sheets during the final stage to ensure that they all brown evenly.
