Title: Bagels with variations i
Yield: 12 Servings
4 1/2 c All-purpose flour;
1 pk Active dry yeast
1 1/2 c Warm water; (120x to 130x)
1/4 c Sugar
Combine 2 cups of the flour and the yeast. Add warm water, 3 tbsp of
the sugar, and 1 tsp of salt. Beat with an electric mixer on low
speed for 30 seconds, scraping bowl constantly. Beat on high speed
for 3 minutes. Using a spoon, stir in as much remaining flour as you
Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough reamining
flour to make a moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic
(6-8 min total). Cover; let rest 10 min. Working quickly, divide
dough into 12 portions. ***Shape each into a smooth ball. Punch a
hole in the center of each ball.
Pull dough gently to make a 2" hole, keeping bagel uniformly
shaped.*** Place on a greased baking sheet. Cover; let rise 20 min.
Broil raised bagels about 5" from heat for 3-4 min, turning once (tops
should not brown). Meanwhile, in a 12" skillet or 4 1/2 qt. Dutch oven
bring 6 cups water and remaining 1 tbsp sugar to boiling. Reduce heat
and simmer bagels, four or five at a time, for 7 min, turning once.
Drain on paper towels. Place on well-greased baking sheet. Bake at
375x for 25 to 30 min ortill tops are golden brown.
Makes 12 bagels.
LIGHT RYE BAGELS: Stir 1 tsp caraway seed in with the yeast.
Substitute 1 1/2 cups rye flour for 1 1/2 cups of the stirred-in
HERB BAGELS: Stir 1 1/2 tsp dried basil, crushed; 1 1/2 tsp dried
dillweed; or 1-1 1/2 tsp garlic powder in with the yeast.
ONION BAGELS: Stir 2 tbsp dried minced onion and, if desired, 2 tbsp
cooked bacon pieces into the flour with the yeast.
WHOLE WHEAT BAGELS: Substitute 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour for 1 1/2
cups of the stirred-in flour. Add 3/4 cup of raisins if desired.
NOTES : ** I prefer to roll the dough in a rope and wrap it around my
hand to form the bagels.
