Serves: 8
  • 8 bagels
  • 250ml water, lukewarm
  • 8 grams salt
  • 8 grams sugar
  • 7 grams dried yeast
  • 400 grams strong white flour
  • seeds, nuts, cheese, herbs
  • 1 large pot of water plus 2 tbsp white sugar
  1. Dissolve the yeast in water, add sugar and flour and bring together to a dough. Knead the dough by hand for 5 minutes, add the salt and continue to knead for another 5 minutes. Let the dough proof under a damp tea towel for 1h.
  2. Divide the dough into 8 equally sized pieces and shape little round buns. Let the buns rest for 10min.
  3. Make a hole in the middle of each bun and pull gently to make the hole a little bigger and even. Let proof again for 30 minutes under a damp tea towel.
  4. Turn the oven on 250 degrees. Bring a pot of water to the boil with the 2 tbsp of sugar. Gently drop the bagels in to the water and turn the heat down to let the water simmer. Cook the bagels for 1 minute on each side, lift up from the water and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Sprinkle topping of your choice on top of each bagel.
  5. Put the bagels in to the middle of the oven, turn the heat down to 220 degrees and bake for 20min.
