Cook:

15 Min

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

2 1/2 c
bread flour
1/2 tsp
instant dry yeast
1 Tbsp
sugar
1 tsp
salt
1 c
luke-warm water
1 tsp
sugar
1 large
pot of water (for boiling)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large bowl, lightly mix together flour, sugar, and salt.
2
Add yeast and water, then knead together ingredients with hands to create a sticky but manageable dough.
3
Take dough out onto flat floured surface.
4
Knead dough firmly with your hands until the dough is no longer lumpy and powdery, approximately 15min.
5
Add sprinkles of water or flour as necessary to keep the dough manageable — it will get elastic but pretty stiff.
6
Roll out dough into long tube and cut 1 inch sections as seen in picture.
7
Use your finger to poke a hole into the center of each piece.
8
Cover the bagels with plastic wrap and let rest for about 15 minutes (30-40 min during winter time).
9
In the meantime, fill a large pot with water and a teaspoon of sugar and bring to a simmer.
10
Preheat oven to 375F.
11
When the dough is ready, carefully drop them into the water (doing batches of 2 at a time) and let them simmer for about 15 seconds on each side, flipping them only once.
12
The bagels should float when ready.
13
Use a slotted spoon to remove bagels and place onto a baking sheet.
14
When all bagels are boiled and no baking sheet, bake for approx. 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
