Greek Bagels
  • Preheat the oven to 200*C (390*F) Fan.
  • Use the mixing bowl from your mixer. Add the water and yeast and mix with a spoon until the yeast has dissolved. Let it rest for 5-6 minutes until the yeast becomes foamy.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients to the mixing bowl (the hard wheat flour, all-purpose flour, sugar and salt). Beat them, using the hook attachment, on medium/high. It should take about 7-8 minutes until if forms a soft, elastic dough, which is easy to handle. The dough will start to pull off the bottom.
  • Grease the whole interior of a bowl with oil. Transfer the dough to the bowl, cover with plastic wrap. Allow to rest for 30 minutes to 1 ½ hours, until it doubles in size.
  • Fill a bowl with water (500g). Add the sugar and mix until the sugar dissolves. Add the sesame to a separate bowl.
  • Brush some oil on to a clean work surface before setting down the dough. Cut in to about 10 pieces, 80 g each.
  • Form smooth balls. Knead each ball by hand, in to a long roll (like a sausage). Bring the two edges together to form a circle. Try to make them all the same size and shape.
  • Dip each bagel into the bowl with water and directly into the bowl with sesame seeds.
  • Place on to 35x40 cm baking sheets that have been lined with parchment paper. Bake for about 15-20 minutes, until golden.
  • To serve, brush with melted butter while they are still hot. Try them with blue cheese, feta cheese or pickled grapes!!.
