Try something different for breakfast with these delicious fresh bagels. Mix and match with yummy spreads such as salmon and cream cheese or a delicious poached egg.

Method

  1. Place the dough ingredients into a mixer with a dough hook attached and mix to a soft dough and knead for 5 minutes. If mixing by hand, put the flour, salt, sugar, malt extract and yeast into a bowl and mix to a dough with the warm water.

    • 450g Strong White Bread Flour (we like Allinson)
    • 2 tsp Salt
    • 1 tsp Unrefined Golden Caster Sugar (we like Billington's)
    • 1 tsp Malt Extract
    • 1 Easy Bake Yeast Sachet (we like Allinson)
  2. Knead on a floured board for 10 minutes.

  3. Divide and roll the dough into 8 flat circles, make a hole through the centre of each with your thumb and place onto a greased baking sheet.

  4. Leave to prove until double in size. Preheat 190°C (170°C fan, gas mark 5).

  5. Bring the a saucepan of water with 1 tbsp of malt extract to the boil, reduce to a simmer and poach the bagels, a few at a time, for one minute on each side.

    • 1 tbsp Malt Extract
  6. Place the poached bagels back onto the baking sheet.

  7. Brush with the egg and sprinkle with seeds.

    • 1 Egg Glaze
  8. Bake for approximately 20 minutes.
