 Ingredients List

  • 8 fl Oz. boiling milk
  • 2 oz Butter
  • 1 oz Caster sugar
  • 1/2 oz Fresh yeast or 2 tsp dries
  • 1 pn Salt
  • 1 Egg, separated
  • 14 oz Strong plain flour
  • 2 tb Cold milk


Pour the boiling milk into a mixing bowl, stir in the butter and the
sugar and leave mixture until lukewarm. Sprinkle over the crumbled
yeast en let stand for 5 minutes (if using fresh yeast) or 15 minutes
(if using dried yeast). Stir in the salt en egg white, then gradually
beat in the flour to make a soft dough. Knead the dough on a lightly
floured surface for about 5 minutes, until smooth and elastic. Retorn
the dougn to mixing bowl, cover with cling wrap and leave to rise in
a warm place for about 1 hour. When doubled in size, knock out the
air and divide the dough in 16 even-sized pieces. oll each piece into
a sausage shape, then form a ring; pinch the join firmly together.
Place bagels on greased baking sheets, leaving enough space between
them to let them rise and swell without touching each other. Cover
loosely with a towel and leave them to rise for 10-15 minutes. Bring
water to the boil in a large saucepan, reduce the heat until waters
simmers, then gently drop in the bagels - only a few at a time to
prevent them from touching and sticking together. Simmer each bagel
for 10-15 seconds or until puffy and beginning to swell. Lift the
bagels out of the water with a slooted spoon and return them to the
baking sheets. Mix the egg yolks with the cold milk and brush the
bagels with this mixture. Bake bagels for about 20 minutes in
preheated (200 Centigrade/400 Fahrenheit) until golden and hollow
sounding when tapped. Leave them to cool on a wire rack.
