Add the ◎ ingredients into a bowl and mix with your hands. Take the dough out onto a flat surface and knead for about 15 minutes.
Divide the dough into 4 pieces and roll them up. Cover with a plastic wrap or a dampened towel and let rest for 10 minutes.
Roll it out into a 15 x 7 cm oval shape. Leaving 3 cm of width at the right end, fold in 3 layers and tightly seal the seam.
Cover the left end with the 3 cm edge on the right and make it into a doughnut shape. Let rest for 20 minutes at 35℃.
Bring plenty of water to a boil in a frying pan, reduce to low heat and add honey. Gently insert the bagels and cook 30 seconds each side.
Transfer to a baking sheet, and immediately transfer to a preheated 200℃ oven. Bake for 20 minutes at 180℃ and they're done.
This how they looked when I mixed in some white anko (sweet bean paste) and white chocolate.
Story Behind this Recipe
I has a 'matcha maple syrup latte' at a cafe and loved it So I tried making bagels with the same flavorings.
You can just let your bread maker do the kneading, but there's a chance that it'll break the machine since the bagels are less moist compared to regular bread and thus require more power to knead. If you're not worried about dieting, add some white anko (sweet bean paste) and/or white chocolate.
