Bagels have recently become a firm favourite in our home. Everyone loves them for lunch and easily get through a few packets of them a week. So I decided that I would try my hand at making them myself - just for fun.
For some reason I thought that they would be far more difficult to do than they actually were. The dough was easy - popped everything into my Kenwood and did the whole mixing, proving, mixing again process in it.
Then I divided the dough into 12 equal portions, rolled them out into 'sausages' and pinched the ends together.
Next you pop them into rapidly boiling water for a few minutes which causes them to double in size.
Then into the oven for 20 minutes - so easy.
Best of all they tasted delicious and I have enough bagels to see my family through the week without having to pop to the store ;)
