Tried and Tested: Best Bagel Recipe EVER!

My friend in New Zealand sent me this bagel recipe. 
They are  so easy to make and SOOOO tasty!
Problem was that were eaten before I had time to take a picture - but they turned out just like the plain ones above.
My only "complaint" is that this recipe is only for 8 bagels....
I promise, you will never buy bagels in the supermarket after having tasted these!
The recipe used cups as measurement, but I have converted them to metric as I am more used to that - therefore even the water has been weighed to get it accurate.

Make the dough with
225 grams (1 cup) warm water,
1.5 tspn salt,
2 tablespoon sugar,
375 grams flour and
2.5 tspn yeast
(I use the breadmaker on the dough setting).

Then when the dough is ready (i.e done it's warm, rising thing),
I cut it into 8 pieces,
and shape like a bagel (by poking a hole into each piece).

Then I poach each bagel in hot water for 1 minute on each side, then drain, brush the top lightly with milk, then bake for approx 20 mins (or until brown) in the middle of the oven at 180 degrees.

I agree with my friend saying "They are just fab !"

  6. These look great! Problem is that I don't have a bread maker ... and life is too short to do the kneading, rising thing myself ... Bernard made them once, though, and i remember how wonderful they were!
