Bagels are a delicious meal, especially homemade bagels. Waking up to homemade bagels is one of the best feelings. Making a single batch of dough creates the opportunity to make a variety of bagels, such as everything, sesame or poppy seed, cheese, or even cinnamon raisin. When making homemade bagels, be sure to let them rest overnight to enhance the flavor. First, find a large bowl and add water and yeast. After the yeast becomes frothy, add flour, salt, malt syrup into the bowl. Use a standing mixer with a dough hook to mix for about ten minutes. Cover the dough and let it the dough rest at the room temperature for at least an hour and a half. Next, get a baking sheet and parchment paper. Set the dough onto a surface with flour and roll into small balls. Then, stretch the dough to create a circle. After that, place the bagels on a sheet and let it refrigerate for around eight hours at the least or even overnight. Before baking the bagels, allow them to sit uncovered at room temperature for one hour. Before going in the oven, bagels need to be added to boiling water. Add each bagel and allow it to boil on each side for one minute for a total of two minutes. Then, place the bagels on a greased and flat baking sheet and into the oven. Bake at 425 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. For bagels with toppings, like poppy, sesame, or everything seasoning, brush the bagels with an egg wash and sprinkle the seeds before baking in the oven. These bagels are sure to a hit! Make them yourself for your next brunch.Read More »
