My youngest daughter loves bagels at the moment toasted for her breakfast every morning. I buy Sainsburys bakery bagels at £1.00 for 4. I thought today I would have a go at making some myself to see how they turned out. I worked out the costings to be around 30 pence for eight bagels which is a bargain and a big saving on the shop bought ones.
250ml tepid water
1 Tbls oil
11/2 tsp salt
11/2 Tbls sugar
450g strong plain flour
1 sachet dried yeast
1 egg white
2 tsp water
Put water, salt, sugar and oil in breadmaking machine.
Add flour to wet ingredients then the yeast.
Set machine to bagel program or dough program.
When program is finished knock dough back and divide into 8 pieces.
Roll into a ball then with a floured finger push your finger through the centre of the dough.
Repeat process until all bagels have been done.
Mix egg white with the water.
Place bagels on a tray and brush with the egg wash.
Bake in fan oven at 200C for 20 minutes.
Had a day at home today pottering around the house doing cleaning, baking and ironing. I only ventured out to take the dog on his walks. It was actually a love day for dog walking. Sun shining and not too cold. Whilst cleaning the bathrooms I noticed one handwash had just about been used up so I took it to the kitchen, got the handwash from the shower room and did this...
Breakfast - medium bowl branflakes with skimmed milk
Lunch - Homemade spicy sweet potato soup and a homemade bagel
