    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 8

    Yield:

    large b ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a large bowl (or the bowl of a stand mixer) combine yeast, sugar and water.
    2. 2
      Let stand for 5 minutes, then stir in flour and salt.
    3. 3
      Mix dough thoroughly until it comes together in a large ball, pulling away from the sides of the bowl. Add an additional tablespoon of flour or water, if needed.
    4. 4
      If kneading by hand, turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until very smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. If using a stand mixer, knead dough with the dough hook until elastic, about 8 minutes on a low speed.
    5. 5
      Place dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let rise for 1 hour, or until doubled in size.
    6. 6
      Bring a large pot of water to a gentle boil and preheat the oven to 400°F.
    7. 7
      When dough has risen, turn the dough out onto a very lightly floured surface and divide into 8 equal pieces. Shape each piece into a tight ball, pinching the corners together at the bottom of the piece of dough. When all the balls are shaped, let the dough rest for 30 minutes covered with a clean dish towel.
    8. 8
      Once dough balls have rested, the bagel shape can be formed. Using your fingers, poke a hole through the center of each dough ball. Stretch out the dough into a ring with your fingers and be sure to make the hole a little larger than you want the finished bagel to have, as it will shrink slightly while the bagel is expanding during the baking process.
    9. 9
      Let bagels rest for about 10 minutes.
    10. 10
      Working a couple at a time, drop the bagels carefully into the boiling water. Boil for 2 minutes on the first side, then flip and boil for an additional minute.
    11. 11
      Using a slotted spoon or strainer, transfer bagels to a clean towel to drain for a moment, then place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Repeat process with remaining bagels.
    12. 12
      Brush boiled bagels with lightly beaten egg (a pastry or bbq brush is a good tool for this) and bake for 20-24 minutes, until golden brown.
    13. 13
      Cool completely on a wire rack.
    14. 14
      Slice and toast to serve.

      This was my first attempt at making my own bagels, and I have to say they were excellent! This is a simple, not many ingredients kind of recipe that any, I say ANYone can make. I added sesame seeds this time as well as plain, but next time I will mix in some dried blueberries...my favorite. Thank you RecipeZaar and thank you Cinnamonised!!
