The bagels are just fun to make add that they are tasty and you have a major winner.
First I dump the finished rising dough on a greasy counter top. I use a Kitchen Aid mixer , I have gone thru 2 bread machines and this baby I just love. I let it rest for a minute or 2 and then divide it in half.
With bread I spray oil on the counter when I forming the loaf since flour drys it out and in the end you have a loaf of floury bread not good.
You only boil them for about 30 seconds on each side. If you boil them to long you have a bloated mess. :0)
A trick to see if your dough has doubled in size on the first rise is to push your finger in slightly and pull it out quickly. If the indention puffs back out quickly the dough is done. If the indention just stays there you need to let it rise a little longer. I start checking the dough at about 30 minutes and then every 10 minutes after that.
but mine doubles in size in about 30 to 40 minutes.
I hoped you enjoyed out baking day and learned something from our try at showing you what we do. If you would like the recipes just post a comment and will gladly share them.
Have a blessed day!
