INGREDIENTS
    • 4 cups (500g) all-purpose flour
    • 1 tbsp active dry yeast
    • 1 tbsp salt
    • 3 tbsp sugar
    • 1½ cups (360 ml) warm water
    • 3 tbsp olive oil
    • 1.25 cups (187g) sesame seeds
DIRECTIONS

1. Put flour, yeast and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix and add salt, oil and water.

2. With dough hook attachment knead the dough for 6-7 minutes, until smooth and elastic. Place in an oiled bowl. Cover bowl with plastic wrap or a damp kitchen towel, let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.

3. When the dough has risen, punch it down and turn it out onto a lightly floured countertop. Divide into 6 equal pieces. Shape each piece into a ball. Dig your thumbs into the center to create a hole and stretch the dough outward to create an oval ring.

4. Dip the bagels in cold water then dip coat with sesame seeds. Place the bagels on a try lined with parchments paper. Cover and let rest for 20 minutes.

5. Preheat oven to 190C (375F).

    Five star recipe, simple to follow with perfect results! I ended up with 8 beautiful large bagels. Next time I think I will try to divide it into 10 or 12. Thank you for a great recipe, worth repeating.

    Can you halve the recipe to make half the dough?
