traditional polish bagels

A bakery has recently opened in our neighborhood. And every day, on the way to the park, we sniff at the insane smell of fresh bread. Although I regularly make homemade bread , one evening I fell prey to the smell and went in to buy some bread. It doesn't matter which one is fresh. :))) In addition to bread, I also bought two Polish pretzels , because the dwarves wanted them. They liked it so much and they ate so eagerly, that I said to myself “tomorrow I will too. What can be so hard? ”

And it wasn't hard, on the contrary. Especially since I made the dough with my friend, the bread machine. :))

traditional polish bagels


  • It took:
  • 100 g butter
  • 250 ml milk
  • 10 g dry yeast
  • 75 g old
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar flavored with lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • ~ 550 g flour
  • Furthermore:
  • 50 g butter
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar flavored with lemon
  • For anointed:
  • 1 yolk
  • 2-3 tablespoons of milk
  • For syrup:
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 100 ml water

Preparation Polish pretzels:

  • The proportion of ingredients for the syrup should be 1: 1, but I put it as I thought it would be suitable for sweet. 🙂 You can make even more syrup if you want very syrupy pretzels.

Melt the butter, then pour the milk and sugar on top. Mix well to melt the sugar. In a bowl put flour mixed with salt and dry yeast. Make a hole in the middle and slowly pour the milk mixture with butter. Knead well until you get a smooth and non-sticky dough. Leave to rise until it doubles in volume.

Knead the raised dough, take the air out of it, then divide it into 2 parts. Each part is spread in a rectangular sheet about 0.5 cm thick, then grease well with butter that I left at room temperature and mixed with flavored sugar.

Fold the sheet of dough, then cut into strips about 2 cm wide. We cut each strip into 2, leaving one end uncut (like a V from "victory" :))) We wrap the 2 thin strips thus formed around each other, then form the pretzel, joining the ends in the middle of the strip.

Put the pretzels in a tray lined with baking paper, grease with beaten egg yolk with a little milk

Bake over medium heat until lightly browned.

In a saucepan put honey and water and put on fire. We keep the water warm enough and the honey to dissolve.

Remove the tray from the oven and pour the syrup over them.
