I have always been terrified of making bagels. The idea of boiling something before baking it just seemed too complicated and grounds for disaster. On the other hand, I’m not one to say no to a baking challenge so when I was asked to make some bagels I set out to find a recipe that I liked the sound of and rolled my sleeves up. It turned out that making these is super easy, the dough is a pleasure to knead and work with and I now make a batch pretty much every other week.
The recipe I followed is from the Hobbs House Bakery and you can find it here.
