Soft and chewy with a slight sourdough tang, these sourdough pretzels have great texture and are fun to make.
Today is kind of a special day. Today marks the THIRD anniversary of something kind of special to me – Sourdough Surprises! I cannot believe it has been a whole three years since Shelley and I started this little adventure. To all the people who have joined us – thank you so much for baking along with us! You have helped this to thrive and grow, and we have had so much fun with you!
This month we chose to do a “Choose Your Own Adventure” theme – basically, you could make anything that we have previously made. So if there was something you loved, something you missed, or something you wanted to retry, you could pick to do that! I had a hard time deciding what I wanted to make, but decided that I would really like to try my hand at pretzels again. The first time they ended up being really chewing and hard, but delicious! I used the exact same recipe as I did three years ago, but I made some changes. And this time, they turned out soo much better! They were soft and chewy, had great texture and a tiny sourdough tang.
Sourdough Hot Dog Buns – These homemade hot dog buns have a dense and chewy texture with sourdough tang, and are perfect for your next barbecue!
Sourdough Hot Cross Buns – These sourdough hot cross buns are soft, slightly sweet, and deliciously flavored. The tang of sourdough is mellowed by the ale and spices, and everything seems to blend together perfectly.
