When we lived in Salatiga, we had a lovely little bakery in town that delivered fresh bread and bagels to us once a week. In Papua, no such luck! So, I make my own. And what do you know, it’s super easy to do! Make bagels I mean…well, bread isn’t to hard either, but this post is about bagels )
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 cup warm water (110 degrees F)
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp white sugar
2 1/4 tsp yeast
3 cups bread flour (although I just use regular ol’ white flour)
3 tbsp white sugar
1. Place water, yeast, salt and 2 tbsp of white sugar in a mixing bowl. Allow yeast to activate.
2. Add flour. Mix thoroughly. (If you want to make cinnamon raisin bagels, you add them after the flour)
3. Let dough rest on a slightly floured surface. Meanwhile, boil water mixing in 3 tbsp of sugar.
7. Serve to happy husband with cream cheese! Yummy!
See, easy right?
Go forth and make bagels!
