Hello everyone!! How are you?
A few years ago tried for the first time the recipe of bagels, which for those who do not know, are a kind of salty donuts with bread dough super known in England and the United States. They are usually taken with ham, jam or salmon and cheese but you drink them as you take them are very good.I never anaged to post this recipe in english so here it is!
The other day, I decided to try the recipe for the “rainbow bagels” or rainbow bagels because they seemed very funny and somewhat different for a breakfast, party or just having a good time in the kitchen. I must admit that it is a laborious recipe and it takes time but in summer … what better opportunity than cooking and using a good time?
The ingredients are very simple and although I did not prepare a filling, the typical one usually has Philadelphia-style cream cheese and many sprinkles !!!
Here you have a picture of my favorite bagels!
2 and 1/4 teaspoons baker’s yeast
375 mL of warm water
2 tablespoons sugar + 1 teaspoon extra
390 grams of bread flour
2 teaspoons salt
1 beaten egg
We begin by preheating the oven to 180º. In the bowl of a blender (I used a kitchen aid) mix the flour with the two tablespoons of sugar and salt.
In a separate bowl, mix the water with the extra teaspoon of sugar and the yeast. Let stand until fermented about 5 minutes. We pass this mixture to the flour and beat at medium speed for 10 minutes to obtain a homogeneous mixture that is not sticky.
We pass the mixture on the sidewalk with a little flour and divide it into as many portions as we want to make colors. I made five and used yellow, blue, pink, green and orange.
Mix each serving with paste dye and pass the dough into small bowls to rest for 1 hour.
Meanwhile we prepare a pot with water and let it boil. Once the dough has grown we stretch it with a rolling pin, superimposing each dough on top of each other.
We cut strips of approximately 2 cm and roll it on themselves as if they were candy sticks. We join both ends and get the shape of the bagel or donut.
We boil the bagels for 1 minute in the water simply to cook the outside. This step is very important because it makes the bales have that special and soft texture inside.
Once boiled, we bake the bagels at 180º for 15-20 minutes until they are golden and firm to the touch.
Let cool and serve with the frosting of cheese, salmon or olive oil. They are delightful and super rewarding when you see them coming out of the oven with all the colors so bright.
Perfect for a different summer breakfast or snack!
Many kisses, Soco.
