Today’s recipe ship is going to live on a footling dissimilar from the usual. We accept a lot of solid soil to encompass together with a lot of photos to study. All this because I really, actually desire you lot to sweat making bagels at home.
- 1 together with 1/2 cups warm water
- 2 together with 3/4 teaspoons Red Star® Quick-rise™ yeast1
- 4 cups breadstuff flour
- 1 Tablespoon lite or black brownish saccharide (or barley malt syrup)2
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 quarts water
- 1/4 loving cup love or barley malt syrup2
- 2 Tablespoons poppy seeds3
- 2 Tablespoons sesame seeds3
- 1 Tablespoon dried minced onion3
- 1 Tablespoon dried garlic flakes3
- 1 Tablespoon coarse salt
- egg wash: 1 egg white beaten amongst 1 Tablespoon water
- Stand mixer fitted amongst a dough claw attachment or breadstuff machine (see notes)
- Three large baking sheets (I ain together with love these)
- Wire cooling rack
- Large, broad pan (I purpose my 5.5 quart dutch oven)
- Pastry brush
- Prepare the dough: Measure 1 together with 1/2 cups warm H2O inward a liquid criterion loving cup or bowl. Whisk inward the yeast until completely dissolved. Allow to sit down for v minutes.
- In the bowl of a stand upwards mixer fitted amongst a dough claw attachment4, trounce the flour, brownish sugar, together with common salt for a few seconds on medium speed. With the mixer running on medium speed, slow drizzle inward the water/yeast making certain to scrape out whatsoever undissolved yeast amongst a spatula. You desire all the yeast inward the dough.
- Switch mixer to depression speed together with mix until all the flour has been worked into the dough. The dough volition human face shredded; that's ok. Once it appears this way, increase the speed to medium together with trounce for eight minutes straight. The dough is incredibly strong together with volition live on somewhat dry; produce non live on tempted to add together to a greater extent than liquid. During the eight minutes, if the dough splits or breaks apart-- halt the mixer together with bend the dough dorsum together amongst your hands-- thus travel along to trounce until smoothen together with cohesive.
- Shape the dough into a ball on a lightly floured surface. Lightly grease a large bowl amongst crude oil or spray amongst nonstick spray. Place the dough inward the bowl, turning it to coat all sides inward the oil. Loosely encompass the bowl amongst aluminum foil or a build clean kitchen towel together with allow the dough to ascension at room temperature for 1 together with 1/2 hours. You desire the dough to live on larger together with puffy, exactly non quite doubled inward size. This could arrive at from seventy - 100 minutes. Use your best judgement.
- Line 2 large baking sheets amongst parchment newspaper or silicone baking mats. Place a wire rack over a 3rd baking sheet. Set all 3 aside.
- Shape the bagels: When the dough is ready, gently punch it downwardly if you lot notice whatsoever air bubbles. Turn it out onto a build clean surface. It volition yet live on a footling stiff-- non sticky. Divide the dough into eight equal pieces. Just eyeball it. Makes no divergence if i is slightly larger than another. Shape each slice into a ball together with identify iv balls onto the 2 lined baking sheet. Then, concur upwards i ball thus press your index finger through the pump of each ball to brand a hole. Poke 2 fingers through together with widen the hole past times rotating your fingers inward a circular motion. You desire the hole virtually 1.5 - 2 inches inward diameter. Cover the shaped bagels amongst a damp kitchen towel together with allow to residuum every bit you lot prep the H2O bath.
- Preheat oven to 425°F (218°C).
- Water bath: Fill a large, broad pan amongst 2 quarts of water. Whisk inward the honey. Bring H2O to a boil, thus cut rut to medium or medium-high thus that the H2O remains simmering. Drop bagels in, 2-3 at a time, making certain they accept plenty room to float around. Cook the bagels for 1 infinitesimal on each side. Transfer each bagel to the wire rack. They volition human face a footling shriveled-- that's ok!
- Topping: Mix together the poppy seeds, sesame seeds, dried minced onion, dried garlic flakes, together with coarse common salt in a bowl. Using a pastry brush, brush the egg launder on elevation together with around the sides of each bagel, thus sprinkle each amongst the everything topping mixture. OR you lot tin dip the elevation of each bagel straight into the everything topping mixture (that's what I do).
- Place iv of the bagels dorsum onto each of the lined baking sheets. Bake for 20-25 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through. You desire the bagels to live on a black golden brown. Remove from the oven together with allow bagels to cool on the baking sheets for xx minutes, thus transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Slice, toast, top, whatever you lot want! Enjoy your homemade everything bagels.
- Make ahead tip: These bagels freeze wonderfully! Freeze them for upwards to 3 months, thaw overnight inward the refrigerator, thus warm to your liking.
- If non using an instant yeast, await around a 50% longer ascension inward pace 4.
- Barley malt syrup is a footling difficult to find, exactly genuinely gives bagels that traditional malty flavor nosotros all know together with love. Most natural nutrient stores behave it. I offering alternatives such every bit brownish saccharide inward the dough together with love inward the H2O bath; I've made bagels amongst these alternatives AND amongst barley malt syrup together with honestly love both versions.
- If you lot don't assist for i of these seasonings, experience costless to swap it out amongst some other that you lot love. Or purpose all poppy seeds, all sesame seeds, all coarse salt, etc. The dried minced onion tends to burn downwardly thus I don't recommend using to a greater extent than of that.
- Bread machine: Place the dough ingredients into the pan of the machine. Program the machine to dough or manual, thus start. After 9-10 minutes, the dough volition live on quite stiff. Allow the machine to consummate its cycle, thus travel along amongst the recipe. By hand: If you lot produce non accept a mixer, you lot tin mix the dough together inward a large bowl thus knead past times manus for fifteen minutes.
