The first time I had a bagel was back in San Francisco and I just loved it, since I love bread product in general, lol. The other day I was at IKEA in the grocery section and they had a special promotion for Swedish smoked salmon so my bf suggested to buy some and eat it with cream cheese and bagel, just like we did in the States. So I went back home and I started preparing my little ring bread.
Making bagel is similar to making Priztel, the dough is first boiled for a short time in water and then baked. The result is a dense, chewy, doughy interior with a browned and sometimes crisp exterior. Once they cool down you can put them in a zip lock bag and they will last for days
Step 1: Ingredients
- 2 cups bread flour (250 g)
- 1 tsp sugar
- 2/3 tbsp salt
- 1 tbsp instant yeast
- less than 1 cup of warm water
- 1 tsp vegetable oil
Step 2: Step one: mix the ingredients and kneat the dough
Knead the dough for about ten minutes, or until it is uniform and smooth
Step 4: Step 3: ring it up!
Let your bagels rest on the counter for about 20 minutes, and meanwhile, bring a pot of water to boil
