Last week, flicking through Lula Magazine , I saw this pretty , black and white editorial, where the Vanessa Paradis look-alike model eats a Brezel.
Since then I am craving for Brezels  – but no friends are visting from Germany these weeks and I still couldn’t find a place in Barcelona, where they sell them.  So I tried this easy German recipe of Brezel Muffins  – and they taste deliciously like home :heart:

Brezel Muffins  – 12 pieces

* 22g fresh yeast
*1 tablespoon softened butter
*400g flour
*1 teaspoon sugar
*1 teaspoon salt
*50g sodium carbonate ( E500)
*some sea salt for decoration

Add sugar and crumbled yeast  into 250g warm water and stir until well dissolved.
Add flour, salt and softened butter and knead with an electric mixer ( dough hook) until the dough is smooth and elastic. Cover the dough and let rise for 15 minutes at warm roomtemperature.

After 15 minutes, knead the dough well with your hands and divide into 12 equal dough balls. Cover them up and let rise again for 30 SECONDS.

Grease a 12 unit muffin pan and preheat the oven @ 220ºC.

Then add the sodium carbonate to 1 liter water and let come to boil. ( I recommend not to use an aluminium pot, as it might react with the sodium carbonate). Then one by one add the dough balls to the water and leave for approx.30 minutes, then lift out with a sifter, skimmer etc and let drip on a kitchen towel.

Place the dough balls into the muffin pan and sprinkle some sea salt on them.
Put in the oven and let bake for 15 minutes.  Take out of the oven and let them cool for 10minutes before you take them out of the pan.

The Brezel muffins taste delicious just with butter. But you can eat them also wether as a salty snack ( with cheese and tomatoes etc) or sweet with butter and marmelade or honey. Enjoy :heart:

Happy new year :heart: hope you had a great start! I have a lot of resolutions for the new year (some of them I broke already) – one of them is to finally post some pictures of my last trips. So, here go some pictures of things that inspired me on my trip to NY last November (apart from the best Okonomiyaki & Takoyaki I ever had thanks to Carlota). Hope you like them :heart:
