One of my 13 for ’13 goals was to do a little more baking. Including using my bread machine for something other than basic white bread. I had been putting it off all year, until my friend Katie started posting these delicious bread recipes. That got me thinking, could I recreate her recipes for the bread machine? Well, I am giving it a shot.
Katie and I are teaming up to bring you 2 option for her bread recipes, starting with her Homemade Bagels. Of course, below you will find my bread machine version or you can click over and view her recipe. So, no matter what your preference you will find a recipe that works for you!
- 1 teaspoons of active dry yeast
- 1 tablespoons of granulated sugar
- 2 cups white flour
- 1 cup wheat flour
- 3/4 teaspoon of salt
- 2 teaspoons of oil
- 1 cup warm water
- 3 tablespoons of sugar for boiling water
- Egg and 2 tablespoons of water for egg wash
- Optional Toppings: minced onion, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, oats, etc.
- Add ingredients to the bread machine according to manufacturers recommendations. Select the Dough Cycle.
- When the cycle is complete, remove from the bread machine and punch down. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
- Divide dough into 8 equal pieces. Shape each piece into a smooth ball and flatten. Gently poke your thumb into the middle of each piece, and twirl on your finger to make the hole larger and even the dough out around the hole.
- Cover the bagel dough; let rise for 10 minutes.
- In the mean time, preheat oven to 425 degrees. Bring a large pot with 3 quarts of water and 3 tablespoons of sugar to a boil.
- Lower bagels into the pot of water. Working in batches. Let them boil for about 1-2 minutes turning half way through (the longer you let them boil, the more chewy they will be.) After boiling, place on towel for a minute to drain before moving to a greased baking sheet. Brush each bagel with egg wash, and top with desired toppings.
- Bake for 20 minutes, and cool on a wire cooling rack.
