I've been baking again. Today I tried making Bagels. If you were on Facebook I was updating my progress. And if you've been around awhile you know I love to cook as much as I love to craft. Well, Santa brought me a new Kitchen Aid Mixer, Professional 600! This baby is built to make bread and lots of it. It will take me awhile to learn to make bread so here's my first kick at making Bagels I found on Pinterest.
I picked this recipe as I'm too impatient to wait overnight to make my bread. This recipe is very easy to make in your stand up mixer. This recipe calls for 6c-7c of flour and my "old" KA Mixer would not have like that much but my new one does. This recipe yields in my case 16 med/large bagels. I divided the dough in half after a 2 hour rise and made 8 bagels out of each half.
Here are 6 of the sesame bagels I baked after giving them a boiling bath in water. Ugh should have taken a photo of that for you...
I made a selection of bagels, 6 sesame, 6 cheese and 4 cinnamon sugar. I thought my kids would like that with my Apple Butter. And they did! There's only 1 of those left.
My youngest took a bite out of his warm cinnamon sugar bagel.
If you would like to try this recipe... I followed it from Self- Reliance by Jamie. I like easy recipes to follow that have great results. She has a lot of great photo's to follow and great instruction. Be sure to click HERE to make these divine bagels.
