Bagels I – 8/10

Bagels I – 8/10

May 14 2009

5% white sugar, 2% salt, 1% yeast, 68% warm water, 4% margarine, 2% white sugar and salt
Btw to make Grossini you just make the rise less 15 minutes

* 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour 190g
* 1 tablespoon white sugar 10g
* 1/2 teaspoon salt 3g
* 1/3 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast 2g
* 1/2 cup and 1 tablespoon warm water 130ml
* 2 teaspoons margarine 9g
* 1 teaspoon white sugar 4g
* 3/4 teaspoon salt 4g


1. Mix together the unsifted flour, 3 tablespoons sugar, 1-1/2 teaspoons salt, yeast, water, and butter in the bread machine on the manual setting.
2. OR, mix 1-1/2 cup flour, 3 tablespoons sugar, 1-1/2 teaspoons salt, and yeast. Heat water and butter to 120-130 degrees F. Add water to dry ingredients; beat 2 minutes at medium speed on mixer. Add 1/2 cup flour, beat at high speed 2 minutes. Stir in more flour to make a stiff dough. Knead 8-10 minutes. Cover and let rise. Punch down. Cover; let rest 15 minutes.
3. Remove from bread machine.
4. Divide dough into 12 pieces; shape 3 pieces into smooth balls. Poke a 1 inch hole in each. Drop bagels into a large skillet with 1 inch water (simmering) with 1 tablespoon sugar and 2 teaspoons salt in the water. Cook on medium low heat for 3 minutes, turn and cook 2 minutes; turn again, cook 1 minute more. Drain on towels. Repeat for rest of dough. Place on greased cookie sheet.
5. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 20-25 minutes. Remove from sheets and cool. If desired, before baking, mix 1 egg white and 1 tablespoon water, brush on bagels, and sprinkle with sesame, poppy, or caraway seeds.

This was quite good. Was quite easy to make but waste of electricity and water from boiling. They came out a bit crispy (though I didn’t put any egg wash) and were really chewy and sweet inside.
