1 cup warm water
2 tsp coconut sugar
1 tsp salt
2 3/4 cups bread flour of choice
1 scoop (30g) True WPC80 Natural
2 tsp active dry yeast
1 tsp extra flour
1L boiling water
1 egg white
1/4 cup sesame seeds
Note: If using a bread machine, place ingredients in the following order - water, sugar, salt, flour, protein & yeast and select dough setting.
If not using a bread machine, pour half the warm water into a cup and add sugar and yeast. Allow to sit for 10 minutes without stirring.
In a large bowl, place the flour, protein and salt and combine. Make a well and add the yeast mixture plus the remaining warm water and stir.
On a floured surface, kneed the dough for 10 minutes until soft and elastic. Place the dough into a lightly greased bowl, cover and wait until it’s doubled in size (1-2 hours).
Cut the dough into approximately 9 pieces, rolling them into balls with your hands. Allows to rest for 10 minutes. Poke a hole in the ball and form into a smooth donut shape.
Boil 1L of water and place each bagel into the water for 60 seconds, flipping half way. Remove and place on a clean tea towel to drain the excess water.
Place bagels onto a floured tray and brush with egg whites, sprinkle over sesame seeds.
Bake in the oven for 180 C for 30 minutes or until golden. Allow to cool and serves fresh or toasted with toppings of your choosing.
