Bagels
Method
  • In a bowl, add the lukewarm water along with the yeast and sugar.
  • Let the mixture rest for 5 minutes, until bubbles start to rise.
  • Transfer mixture to a mixer’s bowl, add the flour and salt and beat for 5-6 minutes with the hook attachment, until the dough becomes smooth and elastic.
  • Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled bowl.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and let it rise for 1 hour.
  • When ready, dust a working surface with some flour, place the dough over it and divide it into 10 equal sized balls (85 g each). Make sure that they are all the same size.
  • Line two 25x35 cm baking pans with parchment paper. Dust the parchment paper with some flour and place the balls of dough on it.
  • Cover the baking pans with plastic wrap. Allow to rest for 30 minutes, so they can rise again.
  • Dip your finger in some flour and start to twist it in to the center of each ball of dough to create a hole. Do this gently, so that the dough doesn’t lose its puffiness.
  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Fill a pot with plenty of water and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Add the baking soda so that the water can become more alkaline.
  • Add 1-2 bagels at a time and boil for 1 minute (If you want them chewier, boil them for 2 minutes), turning them over halfway during the cooking process so they can boil on both sides.
  • Use a slotted spoon to remove the bagels form the pot. Place them on some paper towels to drain excess water and transfer back to lined baking pans.
  • Brush the bagels with some egg yolk and sprinkle with your choice of seeds.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden.
  • When ready, remove from oven and allow them to cool on a wire rack before biting into one! Enjoy!
