Here is a recipe for bagels from _The_Best_Bread_Machine_Cookbook_Ever_
by Madge Rosenberg.
re: Bagel recipe for bread maker
1.5 teaspoon yeast
2 cups bread flour
1.5 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
.75 cup water
1 tablespoon barley malt syrup
2 tablespoons poppy seeds, sesame seeds, kosher salt, or minced onion, or
1. Add all ingredients for the dough except the barley malt syrup in the
order suggested by your bread machine. Process on the manual cycle.
2. At the end of the cycle, remove the dough from the machine. Preheat the
oven to 375 degrees. In a large pot, bring 2 quarts of water to a boil.
3. While the water comes to a boil, divide the dough into 8 pieces. Roll
each piece into a rope 12 inches long. Make a circle of each piece,
overlapping the ends by at least an inch and pressing or rolling the
overlap tightly to seal. Let the bagels rise for only 5 minutes.
4. Add the malt syrup to the boling water. Lower the bagels a few at a time
into the water. As soon as the bagels rise to the top, remove them with
a spatula and place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Sprinkle with
.75 teaspoon of any of the toppings over each bagel and bake for
20 minutes, or until golden.
I couldn't find barley malt syrup, so I used molasses. It seems to work
in almost the same way.
I make 4 bagels out of this recipe, instead of 8. They seem to be the
same size as the kind you would buy in the store if there are 4 of them.
If you want them smaller, make 8.
