Baking Bagels

by - 06:50

I've been searching for a long time to find a satisfying Bagel recipe, ending up with my own, taking the best ingredients out of all. What i could see was, that in every recipe there was added sugar to the dough somehow, whether with honey, sugar or maple sirup. I don't like sweet bread and insisted on having my Bagels as sugarfree as possible. I avoid also using wheat flour, while for many recipes it is indeed neccessary to have some type of white flour. So below alternative Bagels are vegan, refined sugar and wheat-free.

Level: Middle
What you need:
Time: 3h // Tools: Oven, Pot, Bowl
9 Bagels
1 Package dry Yeast (14g)
3 dl warm Water
5 dl Spelt Flour
1,5 dl fullcorn Rye Flour
1,5 dl Buckwheat Flour
1/2 dl Chia Seeds
1/2 dl Flax Seeds
3/4 tsp Salt
Chia/Sunflower/Pumpkin/Flax Seeds for Topping

1. Fill a bowl with the warm water and add your dry Yeast. Let it rest for around 10min so it activates.
2. Meanwhile add your dry ingredients (except for the Topping Seeds) into a big Bowl and mix well.
3. Add your warm water and stirr and knead the dough, until it forms a sticky, but solid mass
4. Cover your Bowl with plastic foil and place it in a warm area. Let the dough rise for at least 1h, best is 2-3h.
5. Heat up Water with a bit of Salt in a big pot.
6. Take your dough and seperate into 9 Balls. Press them flat and add the hole in the middle.
7. When your water is cooking, add the Bagels one by one and cook until they come to the top.
8. Heat up your Oven to 200°c (fan)
9. Take your wet Bagels and place on a Baking sheet on a baking tray.
10. Decorate with Seed and bake in the Oven between 15-20min until they are gold-brown.
