Ingredients

  • 30 minutes to 1 hour I used the same warm environment for the dough as I did for the sponge and it took my dough 30 minutes to rise. Check the dough by gently pressing two fingers into the center, if the indentation remains then your dough is ready.
  • 30 minutes You want the balls to expand only slightly or else they will collapse during boiling
  • 25 minutes in a 400 degree oven. Turn the bagel over halfway through to help them brown evenly. They will be a nice golden brown color once they are done.
  • 2 hours Cook time: 30 mins Total time: 2 hours 30 mins Yields: 8 bagels "Crisp, chewy homemade bagels flavored with cinnamon and maple." Ingredients 5 cups unbleached bread flour 2¼ tsp dry active yeast 1⅓ cups warm water (105-115 degrees F) 3 Tbs light brown sugar 2¼ tsp salt ¼ cup real maple syrup 1 Tbs cinnamon Instructions In the mixing bowl of your stand mixer, combine 2½ cups of the four, yeast, brown sugar, and warm water. (Remember to stir the four and spoon it into the measuring cup for proper measuring.) Stir everything together vigorously until it is smooth in texture. Cover and let it rise in a warm environment until it doubles in size, about 1 hour Once the sponge is ready, add in the remaining flour, salt, cinnamon, and maple syrup. Attach the dough hook attachment to your stand mixer and knead everything together on low speed for 10 minutes You may need to add a tad more flour if the dough looks too wet or a tad more water if the dough looks too dry. Do this by the table spoon if it’s necessary and try to do this early on in kneading process. If you wait too long to make these changes then you will end up over kneading which will result in an extremely tough bagel. It may be necessary to stop the mixer and scrape the dough from the sides and bottom of the bowl. I had to do this twice. You can knead by hand if you don’t have a stand mixer; just knead for 10 minutes using as little flour as possible to prevent the dough from sticking. Cover and let rise until it doubles in size. This could take 30 minutes to 1 hour Place the dough onto a lightly floured cutting board and divide it into 8 even pieces. Shape each piece into a ball and place them on a lightly floured surface. Dust the tops with a little flour, cover, and let them rise once more for about 15 to 30 minutes You want the balls to expand only slightly or else they will collapse during boiling. Shape the dough by pressing the dough ball down slightly to flatten it just a smidge. Then press one finger right through the center. Pick up your dough ball and make a hole in the center where you pressed your finger. Using your index fingers, place each one through the hole on both sides of the bagel and rotate your finger around in a rolling motion. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Bring water to a boil in a large shallow pot and boil the bagels for 1 minute on each side. Be careful when turning them. Let them drain on a wire rack. Place the bagels on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake them for 25 minutes Turn the bagel over halfway through to help them brown evenly. They will be a nice golden brown color once they are done. 3.2.2708
